Jan. 26, 1916 – April 28, 2016
Mamie Bell (Dillon) Sigmon died peacefully at her home in Joliet, Mont., on April 28, 2016. She was 100 years old.
Mamie was born at home near Buehl, Idaho, Jan. 26, 1916. She was the second child of 12 born to Squire and Luella (Miller) Dillon.
In 1917, the family moved to a homestead just northwest of Deaver. Mamie grew up there, and lived at the homestead until she married Victor Sigmon on March 2, 1936. The young couple left Deaver in 1947 so that Victor could work in the oil fields around the country. They returned to Deaver in 1956.
Mamie worked for the Deaver-Frannie School District for 20 years, retiring in 1979, so that she could spend more time fishing and camping with her husband.
In 2006, Mamie moved to Joliet to live near her son, Lyle and daughter-in-law Carol. She was preceded in death by her parents, all of her brothers and sisters, her husband, her infant daughter Ruth and her daughter Ila Godfrey. She is survived by her son Lyle (Carol) Sigmon of Joliet, six grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
Services will be held at the United Methodist Church in Deaver on Saturday, May 7, 2016, at 10 a.m. Interment will take place at Deaver Cemetery, next to her husband of 60 years, immediately following the services.
