Mackie Dickinson

Norman — Mackie Dickinson went to be with our Lord and Savior on March 25th, 2010. Family will receive friends on Sunday March 28th from 3:00-4:00pm at Havenbrook Funeral Home. A celebration of her life will be held at 11:30am on Monday, March 29th at St. Stephens Methodist Church in Norman. Services are under the direction of Havenbrook Funeral Home.

Mackie, the daughter of Lillian and George Moore, was born on January 22, 1922 in Norman, OK. She was one of five children. Mackie graduated from Norman High School and later met and married the love of her life, Glenn Dickinson, in December of 1942. Mackie and Glenn had a son, Gary, and twin girls, Jane and Janet. She was a loving mother and homemaker.

Throughout her life, Mackie always had a smile for everyone she met. She had a strong will and a determination to live life to the fullest. She was a 26 year survivor of bladder cancer. She was especially proud of her Potawatomi Heritage, descending from the Darling family line. In her younger years, she was an accomplished bowler. She was a caring person loved by all those who knew her and will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Mackie is survived by a son Gary Dickinson, who was the loving caregiver; he enriched her life beyond words. She is also survived by twin daughters, Jane Dickinson and Janet McMurray along with her husband, Richard; grandchildren Kelsey McMurray, Ryan McMurray and wife Krissy; Will Davis and wife Emily; and Mollie Davis; great grandchildren Kaitlyn, Chloe, and Gavin, children of Will and Emily; as well as many nieces and nephews. Special thanks goes to Dr. Lisa Connery, Dava, and Kim of Dr. Connery's clinic; and Dr. Bob Dow for their care and encouragement. Also a special thank you to Claudia Fields for her tender care with Mackie even in difficult times.

Donations may be made in Mackie's memory to the American Cancer Society, 2420 Springer Drive, Norman, OK 73069 or the American Heart Association, 5700 North Portland Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73112.
