Nola Dehlin, 75, of Richland, died Oct. 25, 2004, at St. Elizabeth Health Services.
Her funeral will be Tuesday at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at Jacksonville, Ill.
Nola Aileen Dehlin was born on Dec. 5, 1928, at Morgan County, Ill., to Milford Collier and Bertha Lee Leeper Brummett. Nola was raised and educated in Morgan County.
She married her loving husband, Richard, at Anchorage, Alaska, in 1958. They were sealed for time and eternity in the Oakland Temple of the LDS Church. After living in Alaska, California, Utah, North Carolina, and Illinois, they settled in Richland, in 2001.
Nola was an active member of the LDS Church, serving as a teacher and compassionate service leader in the women’s Relief Society program. She loved teaching in Sunday school, which she did for many years.
She loved music, reading, and all animals — especially horses, dogs, and birds.
