Never meeting a stranger, she had a spunky quick wit, sense of humor, and knack for remembering names, (sometimes, privately creating nick names of her own). She was given an award for 50 years of volunteer service at Cabell-Huntington Hospital and was recognized as the longest tenured volunteer. She was a member of Christ Presbyterian Church and Beverly Hills Woman’s Club. She was an ardent lover of dogs, especially Boston Bull Terriers. Born June 2, 1926 in Cincinatti, Ohio, she was the only child of loving parents, the late, Gertrude and Albert Kahle in Cincinnati Ohio. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Roy E. Dickson, and two grandsons, Bradley C. McNeer and Shay A. Cassidy. While in Cincinnati, she attended Primary, Grade and High Schools which led to lifelong friendships. After high school, she attended Stephens College, a private women’s College in Columbia Missouri. It was during her time at college, that he met her husband to be Roy Dickson who was serving in the army. They were married on June 22, 1946 in Cincinnati Ohio. They moved to Huntington, West Virginia, where they became the parents of three children born between the years of 1948 and 1953, Craig (Mary Lou) Dickson of Huntington, Sue Ann McNeer of Midlothian, VA and Dean (Karen) Dickson of Huntington. Lois (our mom) dedicated her life and love, to her husband her children and her family, always putting them first, even when it meant doing without for herself. Lovingly referred to by her grandchildren, Matthew (Carrie) Dickson, Brandon Dickson, Andy (Becky) McNeer, Reagan (Jessica) McNeer and Kristen Cassidy as “LoLo” she enjoyed spending time with them from their birth to adulthood, and happily welcoming her great grandchildren, Marleigh and Saylor Dickson, Ainsley, Anne Curtis, Bradley, and Reid McNeer, Andrew, Luke, Grant, May, Caroline, Cassidy Zban, Allie Watts Cassidy and Taylor Cassidy as well. She was received with open arms into the Emogene Dolin Hospice House, and lovingly, gently, and compassionately cared for by each and every member of their staff. Our family is eternally grateful to the amazing Hospice House staff for allowing us to be together as a family.
