  2. As we say good bye to our antiquing friend of 35+ years, there is a fondness for all the stories and circumstances that Dionne experienced with clients. A woman of innovative thought, she was the first to have an antique coop. She also evolved into estate sales which set her apart from the rest.

    Through ups and downs in her life, she always faced life with her head held hi her own form of sophistication.

    Although we can not attend her celebration of life service,we will think fondly of our many memories of Dionne.

    We will miss you, Marcy & Ron Miller

  3. Ed and I have such fond memories of Dian for 40+ years. She started us off on our love of antiques by selling us a leaded glass lamp that we still treasure. Subsequently, she continued feeding our hunger for finding treasures throughout the intervening years. Much of what we own and love came to us through her!!! We will really miss this great lady! Ed and Diane Vigna

  4. Dionne was such a Great Lady! So friendly, neat, helpful and kind. We went to many of her Estate Sales and found many neat treasures that we enjoy in our home.

  5. We know and enjoyed D. from her many and very interesting estate sales and she was a dear friend. D. is a treasure and most definitely is missed. Richard Melvin Lorenzen and
