Arlene R. Dickey

February 27, 1939 — June 11, 2024

Greenville, SC

Arlene R. Dickey, a beacon of love and generosity, passed away peacefully on June 11, 2024, at the age of 85, in Greenville, South Carolina. Born on February 27, 1939, in Arlington, Virginia, Arlene was a person whose warmth and friendliness left an indelible mark on the hearts of those she encountered.

Arlene's journey through life was marked by a profound dedication to her family, a passion she held above all else. Her loving husband, Marshall Dickey, predeceased her, leaving behind a legacy of love that continued through their children: Glenn Dickey, married to Connie Gianikas, Scott Dickey, joined in life with Wendy Cady, daughter Claire Sisk, and her husband William, and Dawn Zandrowicz, who each reflected Arlene's nurturing spirit in their own lives. Arlene's brother, Ed Roebuck, and his wife Linda, also survive her, sharing in the family's legacy of kindness and connection.

Arlene found joy and solace in the creative arts. Pottery and jewelry making were not just hobbies but extensions of her love for beauty and craftsmanship. Her artistic talents were yet another avenue through which she shared her generous spirit, often gifting her creations to friends and loved ones.

Those who knew Arlene would describe her as the epitome of loving, friendly, and generous. She approached life with a rare combination of strength and tenderness, and her presence was a source of comfort and joy to many. Arlene's ability to connect with others, to see the good in people, and to offer kindness without hesitation was the essence of her being.

As we bid farewell to Arlene R. Dickey, we celebrate a life rich in love, friendship, and service. Her memory will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to know her, reminding us of the beauty of a life well-lived and the enduring power of a loving heart.

A private service will be held to honor Arlene's memory, where family and friends will gather to share stories and cherish the moments that captured the essence of her remarkable life. Arlene's passing leaves a void that cannot be filled, but her spirit will forever remain a guiding light for her family and all who knew her.
