Dorothy May Dick


God wrapped our beautiful, precious mother, Dorothy May Dick, in his loving arms and took her home on September 9, 2023.

“My good and faithful servant, your job here is done…in my house there is no more pain and suffering.” This is a joyful day. Rejoice! Our mother was 96 and peacefully passed away at Newburgh HealthCare, Newburgh, Indiana. Our mother loved God with all her heart.

Dorothy was born in Flint, Michigan on May 1, 1927, to Callie and Herman Corn. As a baby, she moved from Michigan to Otwell, Indiana where she would grow up and attend Otwell Elementary and High School. In Otwell she would gain a sister Leona, when her mother married Wyley Helton, fostering a forever friendship between them. As a young adult she moved to Jasper, Indiana and accepted a job at Ken Rad in Huntingburg, Indiana welding filaments, which helped the war effort on the home front during WWII. Dorothy would often reminisce about dancing on Friday nights at the Schnitzelbank in Jasper with her friends, or gathering their cars together in a field with the headlights on, singing until dawn broke. It was in Jasper that she met her former spouse, Leo Dick. Dorothy and Leo married after his discharge from the Navy, and in her words said, “God gave us five beautiful children.” Her children were her entirety. Dorothy and family later moved to Princeton, Indiana. Mother loved helping others and while living in Princeton, she fulfilled a lifelong dream to become a nurse and went back to school and completed nurses training. Her nursing career started at Gibson General in Princeton, then Deaconess in Evansville, and later Oakland City hospital. Mother enjoyed retirement and spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also enjoyed traveling, working in her flower gardens, walking, crocheting and singing, especially hymns.

Mom was always there for us. She was our nurse, confidant, babysitter and friend. Our mom was full of joy and when she laughed, it was contagious. She was there in times of happiness and in times of sorrow and would always say, “God doesn’t give us more than we can handle.” Our mom was the best! The best mom, grandmother and great-grandmother, and she was loved very much by us all.

Missing her today, tomorrow, and the next, are her daughters, Beverlee Hansen (Doug), and Carol Goldman (Jr.); her sons, Larry Dick (Diana), and Eddie Dick (Terri); her beloved niece, Sandy Curtis Gilbert (David); her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.

Preceding her in death are her parents; her former spouse, Leo F. Dick; daughter, Bonita Diane Dick; brother, Charles Corn Helton; sister, Leona Helton Curtis; and son-in-law, Larry Lee Brown.

The family would like to thank our mother’s doctors and nurses at Newburgh Health Care, and her nurse Casey, at AseraCare Hospice, for the care and love they provided for her, and always being there to answer our questions and comfort us.

A private family service will be held at Colvin’s, with burial at Walnut Hill Cemetery, Ft. Branch, Indiana.
