Millie was born on October 23, 1921 in Mt. Carmel, Iowa to Matthew and Philomena (Rutten) Snyder. The family farmed in the area and Millie helped with all farming chores. Her mother passed at an early age and Millie helped with cooking, cleaning, and raising siblings. Millie married Henry “Hank” Dion on January 2, 1939 at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Carroll, Iowa. They raised three children: Darlene, Jerry, and Roger. Millie was a housewife and she worked for Dr. and Mrs. Paul Anneberg for many years. Together, Hank and Millie traveled to visit in many states, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Minnesota, Texas, Florida, and others. They found they loved the game of golf and joined the Carroll Municipal Golf Course, golfing sometimes with friends in leagues and sometimes with family. Millie and Hank won several trophies, and Millie once had a hole-in-one. In later years, Millie enjoyed watching golf on television and listening to country music. She very much enjoyed visits by grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her 85th birthday was celebrated at Graham Park with many loved ones in attendance. She will be greatly missed for her kindness, her quiet sense of humor, and her insight into human nature. She was preceded in death by her husband, Henry Dion; a son Jerry Dion; Jerry's wife Sheila; three brothers: Leonard Snyder, Rudell Snyder, and Marvin Snyder; grandsons: Michael Hofbauer, Randall Hofbauer, and Steven Dion; and one great-grandson, Kyle Neahring. Millie is survived by: her children: Darlene (Dale) Hofbauer of Rochester, MN and Roger (Marlene) Dion of Grand Junction, Colorado; her sister, Evelyn (John) Wheeler of Indiana; her sister-in-law Ruth Ann Snyder of Carroll; her grandchildren: Sharon (Jack) Neahring, Debra (Tom) Groll, Jeff Dion, Cheryl Lehman, Mark Dion, Brian Dion, Sara Dion, Patrick Dion; numerous great-grandchildren, great great-grandchildren, and many caring nieces and nephew. The family wishes to thank all the very kind and thoughtful people who work at St. Anthony Home and at the hospital in Carroll. We give special regards to Ruth Ann Snyder and her family for visitations and encouragement.
