Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Patricia Dickens


I have given up on creating a personal bio that does not sound like the typical gagging "Christmas Letter" everyone has read. But, in order to tell all I want you to know about the past years I will share all the good and of course leave out the not so good. :)

So here goes..... After graduation I went to SMS now MSU for a couple of years and then married, Eugene Hunt, divorced, and married Bob Dickens. None of this happened as fast as it appears when read...

Our family has lived in Washington, Colorado, Maryand, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, and Missouri. At the present we live only a few blocks from my parents home, the one I lived in when we were in school..

I am married to a "Senior High" bulldog, Bob Dickens, graduate 1954 and who continues to let me know what an outstanding football team his years produced. He has been in aviation all his adult life. He flies everything from helicopters to jets. Bob was assigned to the Pentagon with the Army National Guard Bureau, The National Transportation Safety Board, The Army Safety Center, The Federal Aviation Administration, and AOPA-Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. I jokingly say at this time he works just enough to keep us traveling.

I have three marvelous sons, one exceptional daughter, and two wonderful stepchildren (a son and daughter), yes six in all! Between my husband Bob and I we have eleven beautiful grandchildren ranging from 22 years to 1 year.

I was fortunate to be a stay at home mom and after our youngest began junior high I went back to school to complete my BS in Education from William Jewell College, Liberty, MO and acheived my Masters in Ed. from Lesley University, Cambridge, Mass. A teacher friend and I collaborated in writing a book "We All Smile In The Same Language" to be used to create classroom community for a better learning environment. I also was a guest speaker several times and seminar leader for the Education Department at SBU Southwest Baptist University, Bolivar. I taught 4th and 5th grades until 2003 then retired. While teaching I needed, out of necessity, to become fairly competent with computer tecnology. In class I taught my students to use a smart board and create power point presentations to enhance the educaiton experience. I think I am one of those who has learned just enough about technology to get myself in trouble. Fortunately I have a son and daughter who help me with my creative urges or get me out of creative messes. To continue my computer interest I have volunteered to administer this web site.

My husband, Bob and I are either enjoying fun with grandchildren, sailing our 42 foot cruising yacht, or off on a trip in our RV. Lately I have been doing a lot of family research, locating my connection to a Revolutionary War soldier, joining the DAR, and creating my own website for geneology purposes. (patriciaspatchwork.com) I belong to Beta Sigma Phi, Delta Kappa Gamma, Springfield Retired Teachers, and the DAR.

There have been some health issues to deal with the last two years but I am much better and hope to be able to play golf soon. I can climb up and down the ladder of the boat in order to enjoy floating in the lake, this is a great improvement! We dock our boat next to Tammy Bowser Corbin and her husband Lynn and are having a great time visiting and partying together. Life has been very interesting with much yet to be done, I just don't see how we got to be 60 so fast! All in all God has blessed me and I am really enjoying the freedom of retirement!
