Edith (Dee) Dickson

May 12, 1921 – July 6, 2014

On the morning of July 6th, Dee passed away peacefully after a brief illness. Mom was a compassionate woman with a wicked sense of humour. She loved her garden, and during the summer could be found outside verbally encouraging the vegetables to grow and cursing at the deer. Mom continued to bake, cook and do her preserves until the age of 90.

Dee had a life long affair with fashion. Her favorite haute couture was the S.O.S. in Parksville, where she delighted in putting together many an outfit she claimed were “just like new”.

Dee enjoyed life to its fullest. A staunch B.C. Lions fan, mom had many mythical discussions with Wally Buono. She took pleasure listening to Andre’Rieu in the company of her slightly brain-addled cat, Tigger. Dee relished 5 pm happy hour with neighbours in the park, and visits with family and friends.

Currently Dee’s soul is no doubt gallivanting about the universe keeping an eye on us, or possibly, at the Parksville beach where she was happiest.

We will miss her, but Phil has regained his very special lady, and partner in mischief in the afterlife.

There will be a celebration of life for Dee on Saturday, September 20th, 2014, in the Parksville Legion at 2 pm.
