In memory of

Esther Dillow

of Kadoka, South Dakota, died on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at the Kadoka Nursing Home at the age of 84

Esther May Dillow was born on June 11, 1936 in Mishawaka, Indiana to Morris and Mabel (Clemmons) Barden.

Esther lived an adventurous life and was blessed with seven children. They filled her life with pride and joy. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. No matter what ups and downs life threw at her, Esther met them with a smile on her face.

The biggest smiles came each time she was informed that she was going to be blessed with a new grand or great grandchild. She held great pride and bragged always about her grand and great-grandchildren and their accomplishments.
Esther had many hobbies. She loved crafting and playing games.

Grateful for having shared her life are her children; Cheryl McGuern, Willard (Gloria) Strache, Carolyn (Butch) Gleason, Peter (Debra) Kirscher, Lucinda (Jim) Griffin, Peggy (Tom) Sumpter, and Oliver (Cathy) Kirscher; 18 grandchildren; 46 great-grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband George Dillow in 2003; siblings, Rose Robinson, Florence Richardson, and Wayne Barden; and her parents Mabel Rivera and Morris Barden.

Cards and memorials may be sent to P.O. Box 408 Kadoka, SD 57543.

Memorial services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 11, at the Presbyterian Church in Kadoka with Pastor Jesse Taylor officiating.

Interment will be held Friday, June 11, 2021 at Kinder Cemetery in Cuba, Missouri.
