Obituary for Francine T. Dimmick

Francine T. Dimmick, age 74 of Painted Post, NY passed away on Monday, November 22, 2021 at Corning Hospital.

Born on December 16, 1946 in Johnson City, NY, she was the daughter of the late Francis and Josephine (Lukac) Bohunicky. Francine married David Dimmick on November 12, 1966 in Johnson City. In her early years Francine taught preschool in various schools throughout the states. She also worked as a librarian for a time. After moving to the Corning area, she worked as an administrative assistant for the Bath VA for 13 years before her retirement in 2008.

Francine was a woman of strong faith and was a longtime member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Corning. In her free time she enjoyed traveling - having visited 42 states and many national parks and monuments. She and her family spent time living in Germany, Netherlands and Alaska - which was her favorite. When she wasn't traveling with her family, Francine had a love for fishing, reading and knitting. She was a member of the Iditarod Bootie Brigade which knit booties for the dogs running in the Iditarod.
