Dionysia married Nicholas Leveson, a prominent fine cloth dealer in London and they had many children. In 1535 Nicholas was named High Sheriff of London. Nicholas died in 1539. When Dionysia died in 1560 she was buried alongside her husband at St Andrew Undershaft Church in London. St Andrew Undershaft is one of the few churches in London that survived both the Great Fire and the Blitz, and it still stands today. The present building dates from 1532, but a church has stood at the site since the 12th century. A brass engraving honoring Nicholas and Dionysia is still displayed at the church. The scene displays each of them kneeling with many children pictured behind them. Three coats of arms are also included, one may be a coat of arms for the Bodley family.
