OBITUARY: Nancy Kay Dillman


Mrs. Nancy Kay Dillman, age 68, of Gallatin, passed away on May 16, 2023 surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on April 30, 1955 in Wabash, IN to the late Edward and Opal McColley.

Nancy grew up in Roann, IN where she graduated Northfield High School in 1973. She met her husband, Tim Dillman, the love of her life, and they were married in 1977. They welcomed their wonderful daughter, Emily, who completed their family in 1991. In 1998, they moved to Tennessee, and called Gallatin their home.

To know Nancy, was to love her. She loved everyone she met. Every time you saw Nancy, you would see her with her faithful companion, Jewel, until Jewel’s passing; then her new love was, Pebbles. Nancy enjoyed serving God, attending her Women’s Bible Study, camping, housekeeping, decorating, and cooking. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family, being the best mother and wife to Tim (she must have been a Saint to put up with Tim Dillman for 45 years.)

Nancy is survived by her husband of 45 years, Tim Dillman; daughter, Emily Faye Dillman; siblings, Ronald (Jennifer) McColley, Carol (Tim) Kersey, Connie (Bud) Winters; her dear mother in law which she loved as her own mother, Sharon Dillman; and a host of extended family members.

A life celebration will be held at 4 pm, Monday, May 22nd at Center Point Church, 1002 Center Point Road, Hendersonville TN 37075. Family will receive friends from 2-4 pm prior to the service. The family will hold a ceremony in Peru, IN at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
