Service Date:

A period of visitation will be held on April 15, 2021 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm at the Autumn Green Funeral Home in Alfred.

Ilene R. Dashner, 72, of Limerick passed away on April 6, 2021 with her closest friend by her side, Joni Fizur.

“Ilene was the kindest most giving person I have ever met, and we were partners and friends for 23 years.

Ilene’s life was one of travel and so many interests. Traveling all over the United States many times and living in Texas, Arizona, and Indiana.

Her home state was Vermont, but her love of the ocean brought her to Maine where she has lived for 16 years owning a house in Limerick Maine.

Her interest in always reading books, led her to have knowledge in many subjects, which made her well versed and a remarkably interesting person to be with.

She ran a Boston Terrier Rescue program; worked in different pet shops with reptiles, dogs, cats, and exotic birds.

Ilene was a great crafts person and made many beautiful latch hook rugs. She made jewelry from her rock polishing tumblers to sell at different craft shows.

Without hesitation Ilene protected those she loved; she saved my life not just once but twice.

Ilene’s gracious and kind spirit will be deeply missed.”

There will be a period of visitation for my lovely friend and partner at the Autumn Green Funeral Home, 47 Oak Street, in Alfred on April 15, 2021 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers please consider making a charitable donation in Ilene’s name to the Limerick Mills Animal Hospital, 135 Elm Street, Limerick, Maine 04048.

Due to Covid-19 we are requesting face masks and social distancing protocols to keep everyone safe.

The Autumn Green Funeral Home is respectfully handling Ilene’s arrangements.
