“Pat” was born July 16, 1950 in Binghamton, NY, the daughter of the late Avery Moak and Lera Inez Prouty Brigham. She graduated from Waterloo High School in 1968. On May 5, 1984 in the Town of Junius, NY she married Arthur F. Dillon.
She worked for many years at K-Mart in Geneva, until moving to Dundee in 1985; where she became a Teachers Aid at Dundee Central School. Her love of children led her to become a fulltime in home child care provider for many years, until she had to limit herself to just family.
Mrs. Dillon was an avid sports fan and supporter of both the Dundee Sports Boosters, and Penn Yan Martial Arts. She followed the sports endeavors of all the children she cared for; rarely missing a game, fund raiser, special event or project helping all the kids she so deeply loved. Not a joiner of clubs, she did help with the local census, learning, how many kids she did not provide care for.
She is loved and will be forever missed by her husband of 33 years Arthur F. Dillon at home; 3 children Sheri A. (Willie) Huertas of Hollister, CA, James E. “Jim” (Jillian) Dillon and Kathleen J. Scott both of Dundee, NY; 8 grandchildren Christian and Savannah Swygert, Vivienne Hoad Dillon, Abbey and Colleen Scott, Jayden and Joel Huertas, and A.J. Dillon; 2 brothers Ernest (Karen) Brigham of Romulus, NY Rex Brigham of Waterloo, NY; and countless nieces, nephews, cousins, and everyone that lovingly called her “Aunt Pat”
Besides her parents she was pre-deceased by 2 sisters Cathy Bailey and Carol Green, and a dear sister in law Pat Brigham.
