Dasie Preston McCalister of Winchester IL, at age 91, went to see Jesus Sunday Feb 25th, 2024, surrounded by people who loved her very much.

She left behind her 5 children. Kathy Mercer, Mary (Richard) Willis, William “Russ”(Kathy) McCalister, Cystal (Bob) Huston, and Brenda (Steve) Jones.

She left behind many Grandkids, Great Grandkids, and even Great Great Grandkids. She took in anyone who was in need of a Mom or Grandma and was honored to do so.

She was the most loving, kind, and affectionate person to anyone. Oh, and she wasn’t called “The Hug Lady” for nothing. She would hug anyone that would let her just to make their day a little better.

In her younger years she loved being a homemaker. She cleaned houses and ironed for extra money when her children were little. She was a receptionist for an extermination business and an employment agency which she left to take care of her Mother. Her last two years of her life she washed laundry for cabins at the campground where she lived.

She loved sewing quilts. She made many quilts of all sizes for her family and friends until her hands could no longer do it. She loved baking pies and cinnamon rolls that were so delicious! And her wonderful homemade biscuits were enjoyed by all who were fortunate to have tasted them.

Most of all she loved God! She talked to everyone about him and his love. She wanted everyone to know him and trust in him like she did.

Dasie, also known as Mom, Grandma, Gram, Granny, and to a couple of Grandkids Grandma Crazy, will be missed by everyone that knew her and everyone that knew her were blessed to have known her!
God Bless Gram.

A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday February 29, 2024, from 10am-12pm at Cornerstone Baptist Church, 226 Cornerstone Drive, Winchester, IL.
