Obituary for Laura Dickinson

Laura Dickinson was born December 22nd, 1935, in Lubbock, Texas. Her parents, Florence and

David Edwards were schoolteachers. As a little Tomboy, she collected various scars that she would later

show her children to prove she hadn’t always been such a proper lady. After graduating from Texas

Tech, on July 26th, 1958, Laura married the love of her life, Arthur Dickinson. With Art’s career in the

United States Air Force, the two would go on to travel the world together, along with their children

Jonathan and Lisa, before ultimately settling in Vacaville, California.


Throughout the years, Laura was a fiercely devoted mother, and the room-mom in her

children’s classes. Always eager to learn something new and make a new friend, Laura would join

gourmet food clubs at each new Air Force base, which ultimately resulted in her becoming a fantastic

cook. Though Laura was endlessly loving of everyone she met, there was nothing she loved more than

her family.


She spent her retirement years traveling the country with her husband, Art, going to see family

members, always making time to stop at her favorite restaurant, Cracker Barrel, for a chicken liver

dinner. As the co-pilot of “Gus-The-Bus”, the family van, and the family camper, or “Gramper”, she was

in charge of keeping the driver awake, the kids occupied, and everyone’s stomachs full.


There are many ways to remember Laura, like her fierce determination, her friendly nature, or

her adventurous heart. Laura was many things to many people, a mother, a teacher, a friend, a

neighbor, and to her grandchildren, Grammy. She is survived by her two children, their spouses, and

three grandchildren. The world is a better place because she lived and she will be dearly missed.
