E.D. “Dickie” Williamson, 89, of Lorena went to be with her Lord and Savior shortly after 11 pm on May 24, 2019. She was born in Detroit, Michigan on December 20, 1929. Dickie spent most of her childhood in Jacksonville, Florida. She attended and graduated from Tulane/Mathers School of Nursing. While working at the VA hospital in Alexandria, Louisiana, she accepted an offer to go on a blind date with a handsome young military man named Jim. She invited him to go to church with her the next morning, and they were inseparable from that day forward. They married on November 21, 1953. Just ten months later their first daughter Debbie was born. Dickie worked as a nurse during those early years of marriage while Jim attended college to earn an engineering degree, also working part/time to support his family. A few years later Dickie and Jim had two more daughters, Teresa and Linda, and Dickie became a stay at home mom so that she could attend to her husband’s and children’s every needs, which she did so tirelessly and with love. At various times Dickie worked part-time as a nurse at various nursing homes and other healthcare facilities because of her love of people and her desire to serve them.

Dickie became a Christian at an early age in life and the presence of Christ in her life served as her guide for living each and every day. During the years she was raising her daughters she taught Sunday School, worked in Vacation Bible School, and provided numerous meals for those in need. Once her children were grown she became active in Bible Study Fellowship and served as a leader. While living in Malaysia where Jim worked late in his career, she was involved in volunteer work at a local orphanage. Dickie never smiled as big or looked as happy as when she had a little baby or toddler in her arms! After Jim’s retirement, Dickie and Jim settled in Lorena in 1993 and became active members of First Baptist Church of Lorena.

Dickie was sometimes known as a woman who asked many questions! This was always born out of her genuine concern and interest in other people. In her later years when she was helped by many caregivers, she always wanted to know what was going on in their lives and if their kids were happy and healthy and doing well. She was truly a woman who put others before herself, and her family and friends were blessed by her love and unselfish giving nature.

Dickie was predeceased by her husband of more than 60 years Jim Williamson; father and stepmother, John and Mary Dickerson; her mother Lillian Eargle; her brothers John Dickerson and Bill Dickerson; and her beloved grandson, Barrett Minor.

Dickie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Debbie and David Dey, her daughter and son-in-law Teresa and Mark Minor, and her daughter Linda Zust. She is also survived by six grandsons Jamie Pappas, Brady Minor and wife Alyssa, Michael Zust and wife Jasmine, Jason Zust, Alexander Zust, and Kevin Zust and five great grandchildren Jackson Minor, Ella Pappas, and Lyla, Liam, and Palmer Minor. Dickie is also survived by her “adopted” family Wendy and Dan Miller and their sons Nathan and Joshua.

We would like to thank many of mom’s dear friends who provided so much support to our mom as well as to us during her final months and days. We would also like to thank Teresa’s numerous friends that loved on our mom and us during this time.

Visitation is planned at 1 pm, Monday May 27th at First Baptist Church of Lorena. A memorial service will follow at 2 pm. Graveside service will be Tuesday May, 28th at Oakwood Cemetary at 10 am.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to First Baptist Church of Lorena that she loved and continued to support even once she was physically unable to attend.

I was sitting here today with a terrible cold and thought I would take my I Pad and look up some old friends. I had sent Dicki3 a Christmas card in 2018 and it was returned. For some reason I kept the card here in the side of my recliner. I notice on the envelope someone had written Hewitt
Texas. I went on line and typed in telephone number for Dickie Williamson, Hewitt, Texas and up come her obituary. I had receive @ letter I think from Linda when Jim and Dickie were going to celebrate their Wedding Anniversary. My husband Howard was in college with Jim in Fort Wayne, Indiana back in th 1950’s and we had always kept in touch at Christmas Time through cards and a letter. We are so sorry to learn she had passed away back in May. 2019 has been a bad year for me and m6 family. I fell at the grocery store on December 21,1918. And was in and out of hospital four times and spent seven weeks in Rehab, finally getting released from the doctors this past December 4,2019.
We have wonderful memories of your Mom anD Dad and please know our love and prayers are with you. We are still living in Winston Salem N.cC and our three daughters, six grandchildren and eleven great grand children all living within 30 minutes of us. We are so blessed.
Would love to hear from one of you and wish your the very best. We feel blessed from knowing your parents.
God Bless,

I am so lucky that I got to know this special lady through my friendship with her daughter, Teresa. I had the privilege of sharing stories of our nursing careers over visits and dining together with her daughter. I fell in love with her and loved being able to be of help to her on occasion. I shall miss her but am glad she is no longer suffering. I love you, Dickie.

I’m so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort (Psalms 83:18 Jehovah & 2Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort you while we await His Kingdom government that Jesus prayed for in the Lord’s Prayer. Revelation 21:3-5 promises us He will soon end death.... and make all things new again.

My condolences to the Williamson family. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Dickie. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
