MARYJANE ASAY DICKSON
July 31, 1925 – September 1, 2019
Maryjane Asay Dickson, 94, of Boulder, Colorado went to be with JESUS, September 1, 2019. Born July 31, 1925 to Allen and Jennie (Russell) Asay in Camden, New Jersey, she was the oldest child with James, Phillip and Lincoln, her three younger brothers. Following her 1942 graduation from Haddonfield, New Jersey high school, Maryjane took employment as a stenographer.
On March 27, 1948 she married Lawrence Dickson in Haddonfield, New Jersey.
She loved Jesus, her husband, her family, friends, neighbors and people she never met. She identified herself as sister, Grammie, Mom or friend to many. She prayed unceasingly, rejoiced always and was always grateful. People remember her sweet smile and many kindnesses. Her notes and letters were written to express her love and encouragement and the Lord’s intentions for good for all the recipients. She was a faithful correspondent, unwilling to lose anyone God brought into her life. From stenographer to seamstress of her own wedding dress to snowmobile operator she did everything as unto the Lord, to glorify His name. She saw God’s glory in the Heavens and His handiwork in the skies. Reading and learning and using what she learned were vital to her.
She was celebrated as an “Everyday Hero” for her self-appointed job of bringing donated flowers from King Soopers to people in nursing homes. Her calm presence brought peace into the lives of many there and when she left, there was a simple hand-crafted flower arrangement in a newly washed vase. She was active in the garden club, well-baby clinic, school nurse’s office, library, and Girl Scouts.
Women’s Aglow brought many faithful friends into her life. She was an active member of the churches she attended: Haddonfield Baptist, Marlton Baptist, Mesa and Boulder Baptist Churches. Hope Boulder was a perfect fit for her.
She enjoyed traversing the United States with her husband, Larry, visiting all 50 states. Even as her body was failing she continued to hide God’s Word in her heart. She told anyone who would listen in the last few years that she was looking forward to eternity. She has delighted herself in the LORD and He is giving her the desires of her heart.
She is survived by her three children and two grandsons. Maryjane was preceded in death by her parents and brothers and beloved husband, Larry.
