Edna M. Dillon, nee Habermehl, 95, of Swansea, IL, born Wednesday, September 14, 1927, in East St. Louis, IL, passed away at her home Friday, January 20, 2023 with her daughters by her side.
Known affectionately as “Eddie” and “Grandma Eddie”, she loved her family and friends with all of her heart and made everyone laugh – most of the time unintentionally.
