To the Dickson Family, I send my heartfelt sympathy. Mary was a well known resident of Franklin Park for many years. I met her during my service as Fire Chief of the Franklin Park Vol. Fire Co. No. 1. She was a loyal attendee at our Monday night bingo games and always teased me because when I was calling the numbers, she would yell out that I was calling the “wrong numbers.” Once, we went to a horse rescue on her farm on a cold winter day. The horse had slid into a steep creek bed and we were called to pull the horse out. I was amazed at the calmness that your mother displayed during that rescue. Her concern for the horse was unwavering. After a few tense hours and several failed attempts, we were finally able to rescue the horse. Once the horse stood up, Mary calmly walked it back to the stable and gave it a warm bath. But she took the time to hug every rescuer on the scene. A life lesson for me. Mary was a class act. May she rest in peace. Renny Clark

Aunt Mary through her faith was a true believer in Christ and she was very inspirational. When I was a child she introduced me to Christianity and to Pastor Barr of the Allegheny Baptist Church. I remember her and my cousins taking me to church every Sunday. I was impressed with her strength and leadership lending me the impression that she was very devoted to her God, family, and work which attributed to her life success. Aunt Mary will be sorely missed here on earth but she has obtained salvation and eternal life through Christ for the way she lived her life. God Bless Aunt Mary.
