I am deeply saddened for the passsing of Pat. I cut her and Charlie's hair for close to 30 years. I always enjoyed our conversations and looked forward to seeing them. Pat was always full of energy and loved her family. I will miss her greatly. She was a very special client to me. God Bless. Vicky

Our condolences to all the Dillon family. I was shocked to hear the news. Pat will be greatly missed by many. She certainly filled her "dash" with many, many things, and as she always said, "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right."
I learned so much about quilting from her as she encouraged many new quilters over the years. From fabric cutting and sewing, to organizing quilt shows and retreats, she wore many hats in the guild and in the community. Rest in peace Pat.

Pat was a “quilter extroidinaire” and was a driving force for many successful quilt shows with the Piecemakers of Moravia. She touched so many lives through her business, her work with the town and fire department, and her quilting activities. She will be greatly missed . . . Sincere condolences to her children and their families.
