As an infant, Sissy moved with her family to Dixon, Neb., where she was baptized in November of 1962. She received her education attending school in Dixon and graduated from Dixon High School with the class of 1980. Sissy was united in marriage to Gerald Grashorn in Omaha, Neb. Together, the couple made their home in Omaha where she worked in a factory. Following the couples divorce, Sissy moved to South Minneapolis where she met and later married Steve Dillon. Sissy then managed a gas station and car wash. The couple later divorced, and Sissy moved to the Rush City and Pine City area where she worked as a daycare provider until her health prevented her from doing so. Sissy loved life and treasured spending time with friends, family, and especially her grandchildren. On Feb. 14, 2022, Sissy was chosen as the Valentine Day Queen at Heartland Senior Living in Truman and was looking forward to riding the float in the Truman town parade. She loved shopping, playing bingo and cards, rolling dice, watching scary movies, and working on all kinds of crafts. Sissy was an avid bowler and enjoyed quiet time spent coloring.
