Passings
A memorial service will be held Sept. 8 for Rebecca Dillard, assistant director of admissions for the School of Medicine, who died July 28 after a 10-month battle with cancer. She was 49.

Mrs. Dillard spent 25 years in the medical school, starting as a secretary in the admissions office. When John Stone became director of admissions in 1981, Mrs. Dillard was promoted to assistant director. She graduated from Agnes Scott College, where she played tennis after winning a doubles state championship for Newnan High School in 1968.

“She liked everyone,” said May Nelson, administrative assistant in medical school admissions. “She was a real people person; applicants enjoyed talking to her. She was a good person to work with because she worked her way up through the office and knew all the steps. She’ll be hard to replace.”

Her memorial service will be held Sept. 8 at 4 p.m. at the Northwest Unitarian Universalist Congregation at 1025 Mt. Vernon Highway in northwest Atlanta.
