April 19, 1930 - September 14, 2021
Eunice L. Dickerson was born April 19, 1930 to the late John H. & Julia Davis in Gough, a.k.a. Coopertown outside of Waynesboro, Georgia with the assistance of a midwife. She was the 2nd of 9 children. At the age of 16, Eunice and Lulu came to live in DC with her mother’s brother and his wife, Noah and Nancy Cooper. Willie Mae then followed. Eunice inherited other sisters and brothers (Aunt Nancy’s children and grandchild). After attending Georgia elementary and middle schools, Eunice attended Martha Washington High School in Washington, DC where she studied business. While traveling on the train, she met the love of her life. In fact James F. Dickerson (preceded her in death) made a 25 cent bet that he and not his friends that also worked on the train “railroad” could win her over and would be able to get her to give him her number and then take her out on a date. Needless to say, he won the bet and he married her in March of 1954. She worked at Holy Cross Hospital as a nutritionist and then Federal Trade Commission as a legal clerk receiving numerous awards before retiring after more than 20 years of service. When asked what is one word that family and friends would remember her by – sweet! She leaves to mourn her blessed children Shelia S Brown (Pastor Clary Brown deceased), James F. Dickerson, Jr. (Priscilla), Jerome F. Dickerson (Denise) and La Verne Dickerson-Coleman.
