Emajane Dillin, born Aug. 20, 1928 in Miami, Fla., passed away quietly at the John F. Keever, Jr. Solace Center on Feb. 15, 2018.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 64 1/2 years, Joseph Dillin, in 2011. At that time she moved from Hayesville to Asheville, N.C. to be cared for by her son Joe and his wife, Judy, who became her primary caregiver, chauffeur and companion.
She is also survived by her sister, Jeanette Hay; sister in law, Gladys Keith; daughters, Cindy Doughty, Pam Whittimore and Janet Dillin. Her greatest joy were her six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
The family wants to thank the fantastic staff at the Solace Center for their compassion and kindness throughout her final journey.
In lieu of flowers make a donation to the Solace Center through the CarePartners Foundation, PO Box 25338, Asheville, NC 28813 or the charity of your choice.
A private family celebration will take place at a later date. Morris Funeral Home: www.morrisfamilyfuneralhome.com is assisting the family.
