Margery Ann (Weber) Dickman

 

Margery Ann (Weber) Dickman passed from this life into eternal life on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, at the age of 83. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband of sixty-two years, DuWayne, who passed away on October 11, 2018; her parents, Vivan and Marjorie Weber; and her brother, Jerry Weber. She is the beloved mother of six children, Kate Strain, Tom Dickman (Lori), Karen Dickman-Kane (John Vogelpohl), Theresa Virgin (Alan), John Dickman (Ann), and Molly McCarty (Ryan); and the grandmother of seventeen grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

While raising five of her six children in Pierre, SD, Margie taught piano lessons, directed the parish choir, and worked for the South Dakota Legislature, an endeavor that she loved. In 1978, at the age of 42, Margie gave birth to her sixth child, Molly Ann. While raising a toddler, Margie went back to college and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh in 1982, with her degree in elementary education, specializing in reading. She began her teaching career at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Oshkosh, and then taught for fifteen years at St. Patrick Catholic School in Sparta, WI. She was an excellent teacher and especially enjoyed teaching second grade, helping her students learn to read and preparing them for First Communion.

In 2007, Margie and DuWayne moved to Angola, IN to be closer to their children and grandchildren. While in Angola, they enjoyed many family gatherings, developed wonderful friendships, and were very happy living out their final years there. In 2010, Margie was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and battled it until the end. After DuWayne passed away, Margie moved to the Green House Cottages in Carmel, IN where she lived the last days of her life. We are so grateful for all of Mom’s caretakers through the years.

Margie dedicated her life to her faith and to family and friends. Some of her happiest moments were family get-togethers, helping to care for her newborn grandchildren, winter trips to South Padre Island, camping and playing Euchre! She was a wonderful cook and loved cooking for the multitudes!

While our mom will be dearly missed, we are grateful that she is now with dad in heaven.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Tuesday, May 28, 2019, 11:00 a.m. at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Sparta, WI. Father Eric Berns will officiate. Burial will follow in the Sacred Heart Cemetery, Cashton, WI. Family and friends are invited for visitation Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. until the time of service at the church. In lieu of flowers, Margie’s family has set up a memorial scholarship fund for tuition assistance at St. Patrick Catholic School, Sparta, WI. The Torkelson Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences may be offered at http://www.torkelsonfuneralhome.com.
