Obituary for JoAnn Dickson

JoAnn Dickson
JoAnn Dickson of Andrews, Texas went to be with the Lord and departed her loved ones on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 in Andrews, Texas.

Family and friends will gather to celebrate JoAnn’s life at graveside services, 10:00 AM Saturday, August 19, 2017 at Resthaven Memorial Park Cemetery in Lubbock, Texas with Rev. Eddie Marcum officiating. Services are under the personal care of McNett Funeral Home of Andrews, Texas. Please celebrate her life by visiting www.mcnettfuneralhome. Com.

Josephine Antonietta Narciso (JoAnn Dickson) was born December 6, 1919 in Dallas, Texas to Margaret and John Narciso.

She graduated from George Washington High School in New York City in 1937. The family had moved there during the Depression. Upon returning to Texas she graduated from the Houston Business School and then attended Mary Hardin Baylor College in Belton, Texas.

JoAnn met her beloved sweetheart, Robert Dickson, at Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas. Robert and she were married August 19, 1940. Robert was a hospital administrator in small towns in Texas. It seemed those towns always needed a church secretary. Having served as pastor’s secretary at Second Baptist Church in Houston, JoAnn served as church secretary at First Baptist Church in Breckenridge, Denton, Sherman and as a volunteer in Coleman, Texas. She was also active in Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) in each of those churches as well as others.

JoAnn’s God-given gift was her ability to write. She published a book “Tales from the Stable”. She liked to brag that it sold “many copies”. Her love of poetry also was a gift from God. She found poetry writing a way to commune with God and people and had many poems published in various magazines and newspapers.

JoAnn also had a passion for public speaking and community involvement. Throughout her lifetime she was active in the local organization of GFWC Texas Woman’s Club on a local, State and national level contributing her talents and time by writing and attending meetings and conventions. JoAnn and her sister-in-law, Dennie Narciso, also enjoyed many trips traveling the world after they had raised their families.
She was preceded in death by her husband Robert Murray Dickson and by her beloved daughter, Margaret Stanley.

JoAnn leaves behind her daughter, Patsy Dickson Tippin of Andrews; 5 grandchildren, Russell and wife Lisa Tippin, Holly and husband Bryan Conyers and Jill and husband Brandon Webb, all of Andrews; Rebecca and husband Eric Perucca of Kyle, Jason and wife Tamara Stanley of Lubbock and 19 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great grandchild.

She is also survived by one brother, Dr. John C. Narciso, Jr. and wife Dennie of San Antonio, Texas, many nieces and nephews and many loving friends, including her sweet family at The Sherick in Lubbock, Texas.
