Edith Louise Dimon
A wife, a mother, a grandma and great-grandma too, this is the legacy we have from you. It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Edith Louise Gevin Dimon. Edith passed after a brief illness while being cared for at her daughter Mary Kelly’s home with Mary and her son Jim Dimon at her side. She was born December 18, 1937 in Cranesville, a daughter of the late James and Lena (Butterfield) Gevin. Edith was a member of the Federated Church in East Springfield. Her greatest joys came from time with family and daily calls from her children as they commuted to and from work. She also enjoyed visits from grandchildren and great-grandchildren, quilting and cooking. Edith took a lot of pride in her home of 64 years. The door was always open to relatives and her children’s friends, who she loved as her own. Many will remember the hot apple pie, fresh homemade bread or the tubs of popcorn that was usually available. Edith had a close relationship with the Lord Jesus. Her family takes great comfort knowing she is with him along with her husband Clint, son Joseph and daughter Bette that have previously passed. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Clinton Dimon, a son, Joseph Dimon, a daughter, Bette Merritt, three brothers, LeRoy Gevin, Donald Brown, Charlie Brown, two sisters, Grace Tuscano and Tina Wisniewski. Edith is survived by three children, Dennis Dimon and his wife, Sandy, of Conneaut, OH, James Dimon and his wife, Joan, of Union City, Mary Kelly and her husband, Tim, of Girard, a sister, Sarah Baumgartner and her husband, Earl, of Springfield, ten grandchildren, Paul Dimon (Sue), Carrie Demorest, Dan Dimon, Bob Dimon, Tyler Kelly (Katie), Elizabeth Guntrum (Josh), Josiah Merritt, Jared Merritt (Sara), Abby Hanson (Joe), Isaac Merritt (Gabi), seven great-grandchildren, Mariska Reiser, Cody Demorest, Aprel Dimon, Sara Dimon, Logan Kelly (Edith’s best buddy), Eloise Merritt, Olive Merritt, and many nieces and nephews. Calling hours will be held at the Mattera Funeral Home, 188 East State Street, Albion, on Thursday from 12pm until the time of a funeral service there at 2pm with Pastor Dr. Ed Huntley officiating. Burial will follow in Hope Cemetery, Wellsburg. To send flowers, light a memory candle or leave a condolence, please visit www.matterafuneralhome.com
