Joyce Ann Dickson, 83, of Clarksville, Texas, passed away on Tuesday, April 23, 2019. Joyce was born January 29, 1936, in Grundy Center, Iowa, to William J and Bernice Dorothy Peters Shellenberger. Joyce was one of the most caring, positive, and happiest human beings ever to be known. To be half the person that she was would be an honor. She was a loving sister, wife, mother, Grandma, and Gaga. She dearly loved her family, those close and far away. Nothing will replace her squeezing hugs, sweet smile, and the twinkle in her eyes. Heaven has gained yet another soul. Preceding her in death are her parents and her husband, William Dale Dickson.
