Carolyn (Lynn) M. Dillon, 71,

    Carolyn (Lynn) M. Dillon, 71, of Milford, passed away on Saturday, June 23, 2018 in her home surrounded by her family after a courageous battle of cancer. She was born on November 13th, 1946 in Frankfurt, Germany, daughter of Francis X. Collins and Phyllis G. Collins. From Germany, she moved several times; her family being part of the service, and she met her husband of 48 years, George Dillon, as high school sweethearts in Hawaii.  She was a graduate of Framingham South High School, Class of 1965.

    She started her career as an optician in Framingham, MA and retired from Southborough Medical in Southborough, MA. She was a loving and devoted daughter, wife, mother, Mimi, sister and friend, always putting others before herself. Lynn’s passions were her family, friends and community.  She was an active volunteer at the food pantry in Milford and at Dana Farber Cancer Center in Milford.  She was a part of the St. Mary’s Woman’s Schola in Milford, MA and the Choir at St. Mary’s in Franklin, MA.  Lynn especially enjoyed spending time with family playing games and cards and attending her grandchildren’s events at numerous sporting events, concerts, and plays.  She also loved Zumba with her friends.

     She is survived by her Mother Phyllis G. Collins and loving husband, George E. Dillon III and their children, Thomas B. Dillon and wife Amy of Melbourne, FL, Jeffrey R. Dillon and wife Kimberly of Marlborough, MA and Courtney L. Blacklow and husband Peter of Lincoln, MA, one sister Eileen A. Wojdag of Milford, two sister n laws Kathleen Ferguson of OH and Antionette Nicholson of CO and eight grandchildren, Natalie, Jacquelyn, Collins, Avery, Julia, Jacob, Ryan, and Abigail and her many nieces and nephews. Lynn was predeceased by her Father Francis X. Collins and brother Thomas T. Collins. Her family and friends will forever be grateful for the gift that was her life.

    Calling hours will be held Thursday June 28th, at the Consigli Ruggerio Funeral Home 46 Water St. Milford, MA from 5PM – 8 PM.  The funeral will be held Friday, June 29th, 2018 at 10 A.M. at the St. Mary of the Assumption on Winter St. and burial will follow at Puritan Lawn Cemetery in Peabody, MA.

     In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Carolyn M. Dillon to Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Dear Family, as we all gather this week to honor and celebrate this precious soul's life and journey on Earth, through our tears of sadness, may we find comfort and strength in sharing stories and memories of her remarkable life. Who could ever forget that gorgeous smile, her love of music, that beautiful strawberry blonde hair (!), her wit and humor, apple pies, her generous and giving spirit, devotion to family, home, friends and community, and spirited and infectious laughter... You will forever be missed my dear friend and "sister"... AND never ever will I hear "Old Cape Cod" without always hearing YOUR beautiful voice and feeling your love for New England. Never was there a more lovely Lady. ALOHA For Now...🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸

To George and his family... Heartfelt condolences to your family upon losing Lynne. I was shocked and saddened when I heard the news...she left this world way too soon. She was a great gal who had overcome her challenges and never let them hold her back... I didn’t see her after I left Milford, but I did think of her and always thought of visiting her when I was in town but, unfortunately, I didn’t follow through, and now I’m regretting it. Thinking of all of you, May she rest with the angels... Fondly, Nancy Davey
