Serenity Marie Dille

Serenity Marie Dille
Of Baxter, Iowa

Serenity Marie Dille, flew away on angel’s wings on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at Blank Children’s Hospital from natural causes. She was born on October 7, 2013 in Iowa City. Serenity touched many lives and everyone who met her soon grew to love her. We will always remember her infectious smile, being their little bookworm, and her giggling for hours from spinning around. Serenity was definitely a girly girl who loved tiaras and taking selfies!

Those left to cherish her memory include her mother, Chelsey Cunningham; father, Shawn Dille; brothers, Alexander, Noah, and William; aunts & uncles, Shawn Cunningham, Jordan Cunningham, Jeff (Amber) Jones, and Ronni (Alberto) Lares; grandparents, Joseph and Karen Cunningham, Jr., and Kenda Bailey and Wess Soloman; great-grandparents, Joseph and Cherie Cunningham, Sr., Joseph and Marlene Tamayo, Melvin and Anna Von Bank, Diana Moore, and Daryl and Kathy Bailey; and many extended family and friends.

Funeral service will be held at 1 p.m., Monday, February 20, 2017 at Lee Town Assembly of God, 2720 State Ave., Des Moines.
