7 Condolences for Frank B. Dilley

  • Julia and I are so sad to hear the news of Frank’s death. We have the fondest memories of him and our time with the two of you. Frank’s wide ranging sympathies, intellectual and cultural, coupled with a gentle, good humoured tolerance always impressed us enormously. And I remember my time in Delaware in your house and within the Department with particular affection. Most importantly of all, our abiding impression of Frank was of what a decent, humane,rational, caring person he was. Jane and the children were everything to him. RIP Frank.

  • Our sincere sympathies to Mrs. Dilley and family on Dr. Dilley’s passing. He was such a kind and gentle soul. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to offer. We miss seeing you both at the DSO. May his memory forever be a blessing.

  • Jane,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  • Jane,
    I don’t know if you remember me, but we worked together with the League of Women Voters.
    I’m very sorry for your loss. Frank lived a full life, represented by his lovely obituary.

  • Dear Jane,
    You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Frank was an amazing man and will be missed.
    Hugh and Joan Ferguson

  • Dear Jane and Family, I was truly saddened to read about Frank’s passing. I moved to this area 13 years ago and you and Frank were one of the couples I kept running into at concerts all over Wilmington and then when I started to work for OperaDelaware 10 years ago, I finally found out who you were. You both were also so pleasant to me when I’d see you at the door of our Studio and out and about at all the other performing arts venues. Frank will truly be missed and I know the angels in heaven will perform their best for him. With deepest sympathy, Mary Wilcosky

  • Dear Jane,

    My heartfelt sympathy and condolences to you on the passing of Dr. Dilley. So many fond memories of you both at NCCL, NUCC, and the University of Delaware. Always enjoyed running in to either of you at Morris Library. Keeping you in my prayers, Jane.
