Zanny Leach Dillson, a Chattanooga fan died from leukemia on September 25. She was on the Chattacon board for over 20 years, served as Treasurer and ran several departments over that time, including consuite. She was 56. The family-posted obituary is here.
Her daughter told friends, “It was my mother’s wish that there would be no funeral held for her. She hated funerals and didn’t want people sad and grieving and, (in her words) ‘wearing drab-ass clothes.’ Her request was to have a wake in her honor to celebrate her life.” The wake will be held October 3.
