Dinah Simmen Bryant, 70, of Hickory, NC, passed away Monday, August 19, 2019, at Carolina Caring Hospice House in Newton, NC.

Dinah had an unshakable faith and always pursued her interest in the Bible and scriptural studies. Service to others was foremost in her life. This was evident in her devotion to family and friends. As a gentle soul, Dinah enjoyed Hallmark and Christmas movies year round. She helped herself and many others through difficult times by being a prayer warrior. Leading by example, Dinah praised and celebrated the Lord.
