Updated: Mar 19, 2020

Georgiann “Bunny” Barry-Dillman, Avon, CT passed away peacefully at the Avon Health Center following a lengthy illness on March 14th 2020. She was 87.

Bunny was the daughter of Mary Alice and Jerome Barry of Harrison, NY. She grew up in Harrison and was an avid ice skater. The mother of five children, Bunny moved her family from Yorktown Heights, NY to Simsbury, CT in 1968. A dedicated homemaker, Bunny was involved in the lives of her children and the community. She loved her white toy poodle “Louis” that she famously dyed green for St. Patrick’s Day.

Mrs. Barry-Dillman is survived by her three sons, David, Brian, and Jeffrey and two daughters Amy Andrews and Sheila Fontanella. Her extended family includes grandchildren Michael, Emily, Timothy Jr., Ashley and Kalista. She was also the proud Great-Grandmother of Brody, Olivia Lynette and Warren David. Georgiann is also survived by her younger sister Allyson Manfredo of Poughkeepsie, NY and many loving nieces and nephews. Private services will be held at a later date.

Donations in her memory may be made to the Avon Health Center, Avon CT where she received excellent care in her final years.

A sister is a gift to the heart,

a friend to the spirit,

a golden thread to the meaning of life.

-Isadora James

"Sister are angels who lift us up when our wings forget how to fly."

"Sister, you are like my angel, with a love that always glows. You are one of the greatest gifts my heart will ever know."

Not sisters by blood but sisters by heart. Love, Allyson

I was so sad to learn of "Bunny's" passing. She was such a lovely woman and a great mother. She will be missed by her family and friends. There is a new angel in heaven.


Those we love don't go away.

They walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unheard, but always near,

Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal.

Love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Aunt Bunny, you are so loved and truly missed. I will forever remember visiting your house, seeing Louis, and hiding in all the nooks and crannies, while playing exciting games of hide-and-seek with Sheila and Kristen. May you rest in peace, Aunt Bunny. Love, Kim


Goodbye old friend. You will be so missed. Our families had some great times together over the years. I know the angels have welcomed you with open wings. God bless and be at peace.


So go and run with the Angels

Dance around the clouds

For the Lord has chosen you to be with him

And we should be nothing but proud

Although he has taken you from us

Our pain will last a lifetime

Your memory will never escape us

But we are glad for the time we had

You will always be hidden deep within our hearts

Each precious moment you gave us will never ever depart

So go and run free with the Angels

As they sing

And please be sure to tell them

To take care of you for me.
