Lyndle Terry Dickson passed away at the age of 77 on December 18, 2020. His wife of 53 years, Ana Marie Dickson, passed away at the age of 71 on December 19, 2020. Their passing was due to complications of coronavirus and broken hearts.
Terry was born in February 1943 in White Wright, Texas and Ana Marie in September 1949 in San Antonio, Texas. On November 3, 1967, they were married in Winter Haven, California. They resided in Lewisville, Texas, where they started their family. In 1988, they moved to White Bluff, TN, where they later retired. They both were devout Christians and were very involved in their church activities.
Terry retired from Plumbers and Pipefitters Union 572 in June 2005 as an accomplished centrifugal HVAC Technician and a master of many different trades. He was also a Veteran of the United States Air Force. Terry was a proud member of the Dickson Masonic Lodge, a member of the Shriners, and often dabbled in acting in the later part of his life.
Ana was an extraordinary homemaker, but above all things she was a very loving, and dedicated wife and mother. She always would put her family above herself and everything else in her life. Ana loved to cook for her family and friends, and she was an outstanding cook. She also loved music, dancing, watching scary movies and staying up late with the kids. She was overall a big kid at heart.
When Terry and Ana met, it was love at first sight. They knew that right at that moment that they wanted to be together for the rest of their lives. Terry and Ana had four daughters. They were always very much involved in their daughter’s school and sports activities. Their lives revolved around their kids and watching them grow up. They both loved watching football and were avid campers throughout their lives.
They were blessed to have seven grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. Not only were they wonderful and caring parents, but they were also amazing grandparents who would do anything for their grandkids and great grandkids. They were very involved in their lives, supporting them in all their sports and extracurricular activities. They loved taking them camping, fishing and doing anything else the grandkids could talk them into.
They enjoyed life the most when they were surrounded by family. After all these years their love stood the test of time and only grew stronger every day. Their love was a once in a lifetime, a forever kind of love. Their love story has left a lasting imprint on all our lives. We love you both to the moon and back, until we meet again.
A Memorial service will be held on Saturday, Jan. 16, at 6 PM at the Taylor Funeral Home with Bro. Kevin Minor and Christopher Rayburn speaking. Visitation will be held on Saturday from 4 PM until the time of service.
