Obituary Of Joan Dickson

Joan M. Dickson, age 88, a resident of Easton, Maryland., passed away on Oct. 25, 2017, at the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center in Easton.
She was preceded in death by her husband, James “Jim” Dickson; her parents, Dr. Charles and Wilma Mosley; and her sister, Helen Louise Dix.
Joan is survived by her nephew, Steven Dix (Nancy); and her cousins, Marjorie Midili and Conrad Mowrey (Jean).
Joan worked for the U.S. government until her retirement. She loved all animals, especially cats. Two of her favorite ones, Harry and Mia, also preceded her in death, and she dearly missed them. Joan knew that animals if treated fairly, would only return love and loyalty a lesson she wished all would better learn.
Joan was a Master Gardener and was frequently consulted for her advice on gardens, flowers, trees, and grasses. If she didn’t know the answer, she would research it and quickly get back to you.
Joan fought through a number of adversities throughout her life, never complaining about any and always rising above them. Even various cancers found an especially formidable opponent in Joan. She was a strong woman. Bitterness and anger were never part of Joan’s life, rather she presented kindness, a caring way, dependability and fairness combined with an interesting sense of humor.
