NEBTR Rescue Angels
Sue had been battling illness for a long time and throughout all she was never negative, always thinking she would come out OK. Sue lost her battle on March 2, 2007 and the hole she leaves in Rescue will be hard to fill. She was always willing to take in fosters that no one else could. No matter how hopeless it seemed she always wanted to try and save each and every dog. If it meant just loving them for a very short time, for some who never had love, she was willing to be with them until the end and show them that people weren’t all bad. They passed on to the Rainbow Bridge happy. You don’t often find many Rescue People like Sue; they are a rare breed, but then again you don’t often find many people like Sue. Northeast Boston Rescue mourns the passing of a True Rescue Hero and friend. We will never forgot her spirit, which will linger for all time.
Good bye Sue, for who those of us who truly believe in the Rainbow Bridge, we know you are being mobbed by a pack of Bostons who are so happy to see their mom again.
We met through Dobby, she adored him. A real rescue warrior. She helped pull and transport with Cindy Clark for BTRET, NC Branch. NEBTR was listed on her Caring Bridge in lieu of flowers and her partner has us listed in her will. These are real NEBTR bostie lovers! Ana(Chum)Kimsey is watching over bosties from heaven.

Jim Carnahan Sr. left for the Rainbow Bridge on April 4, 2009. Mr. Carnahan is the father of NEBTR volunteer Barbara Carnahan. Through out his 81 years, he was a lover of all animals–birds, cats, ducks, dogs. His first passions were his family, baseball and German Shepherds. Later in his life, his passions also became Boston Terriers and Greyhounds, which he shared with Barb. His passion for the Phillys never wavered and they honored him with a World Series Championship this past fall.
Although Mr. Carnahan is no longer with us physically, we can all rest assured that he is greeting and loving each and every one of our precious pups that cross the Rainbow Bridge. They will all be greeted by a very handsome, 6′ Irishman with a HUGE twinkle in his eye, a broad smile and a ready lap.
This fund is to honor his memory. All donations will go to our featured pups with medically challenging and expensive conditions.
Diane E. Dilzell,64, passed away peacefully on February 10, 2015 at her home in Howell. Born in Somerville, to the late John and Anne Semchyshyn, she was a former resident of Bound Brook, Clinton Township, Montgomery Township, Far Hills, and then Howell, to be close to the
ocean, where she loved to spend her time.
Diane’s professional passion was with the Realtor family; protecting the consumer and Realtor. She started her career in 1987 with R.A. Weidel Realtors and was the Manager of the Hillsborough office from 1996-1999. In 1999 she joined RE/MAX Pinnacle in Bedminster where she became partner with David H. Mako. Together they built the company which they sold in 2008 to form their own independent company, Pinnacle, Realtors. “Moving you forward” was the slogan David and Diane chose, because it
represented the dream of everyone to not look back, but rather move forward towards your dreams.
Surviving are her loving children, Allison Brooke Dilzell Beck and husband Jessie, of Olive Branch, Mississippi, and John Park Dilzell, Jr. of Lambertville, her cherished granddaughter, Hailey Ann Beck, and her beloved Boston Terrier, Toby.
For ten years, Diane volunteered for People for Animals. She volunteered for the SCOAAH, associate member of the Far Hills-Bedminister First Aid Squad, Habitat for Humanity, Algonquin Theater in Manasquan, and was a member of the Howell Elks #2515. She also volunteered for the Northeast
Boston Terrier Rescue, where she helped with home interviews to help place homeless Boston Terriers in permanent or foster homes. Her last bit of guidance, Diane would like everyone to learn to enjoy
the simple things in life; life is full of opportunity, do it today because tomorrow may
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Diane’s memory
