Dille, Teresa Marie
Age 62, of Portage, Michigan, passed away on December 15, 2022. She grew up in San Jose, California, where she was an active member of Willow Glen Baptist Church and sang in the choir.

Family was always a major focus in Teresa’s life. In 1978, she married her high school sweetheart, Mike Dille. Mike and Teresa had their first son, Joshua, in 1980 and their second son, Jeremy, three years later.

Teresa’s youth pastor, Craig Selness, married her sister, Brenda and started Cornerstone Church where she attended for many years. She was involved in many school fundraisers over the years and ran a daycare business for 35 years. Many of her daycare kids and their parents remained friends for life. Teresa enjoyed vacations with her family and friends across the western US, Hawaii and Mexico.

In January of 2018, Teresa moved to Portage, Michigan with her husband.

Teresa was preceded in death by her parents, Alexander and Eva Papp; her guardian father, Woodrow “Woody” Williams; son, Jeremy Dille and sister, Susie McCune.

She is survived by her husband of 44 years, Michael Dille; son, Joshua; grandson, Lincoln; granddaughter, London; guardian mother, Barbara Williams; sisters, Brenda, Cindy, Nancy and Olga and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Teresa was especially close to her nieces, Rosemary Papp Santor and Pearl Papp Ahmed.

She wished for a quiet passing but cherished her family and friends. Condolences can be sent to
