Carla Dillon-Jones passed away peacefully on March 8, 2023, at Bella Point Assisted Living in Sidney. Carla was born on December 8th, 1935 and lived a full and interesting life. She was born on the family farm in Highland, the daughter of Thomas Dillon, Sr. and Sybil Howes Young. She was a member of the Mayflower Society, the DAR, Maine Historical Society, and several local historical societies.
Carla loved nature, flowers, birds, wildlife, foliage, and the color pink. She had great appreciation for family and friends, and although she struggled with stroke related memory issues near the end of her life, she remembered every person and every bit of her past. Carla’s passion was genealogy and she spent most of her life researching her family, as well as the families of many others.
Carla loved to travel and went to Ireland twice, once on her own, visiting the areas of her Dillon roots. She married Paul Jones on a snowy Christmas Eve in Arizona, and was thrilled that there was a bit of snow to celebrate the occasion. She and Paul spent time living in Arizona and Florida, and she embraced every new adventure.
Carla was predeceased by her parents, her husband Paul Jones Jr, former husband Edward Foster, brothers Keith Dillon and Gerald Dillon, and her beloved dog Cocoa. She is survived by her son John Foster and Lurie, her daughter Heidi Atwood and Jolly, and her grandchildren Dustin Beane and Melissa, Amber Beane, Tucker Atwood and Autumn, Bailey Coldwell and Cory, Jacob Atwood, and step-son Paul Jones and step-daughter Virginia Jones. She treasured her great-grandchildren Levi Beane and Elliana Coldwell. She is also survived by her brother Thomas Dillon, Jr. and Dodie, sister Bonnie Wright and Russ, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and her cat Hokey. She was especially close to her cousin Patrice Drummond and Greg, and their daughters Kate, Maggie, and Anna. Carla was well loved, and loved well.
We will have a celebration of her life at the Concord Cemetery when the weather is warmer, since she didn’t care for the cold!
