Patty Dickson, aged 85, died on February 13, 2011, in Nacogdoches, Texas. She had been a Baba-lover since 1989 when she felt Baba’s presence walking beside her at Meher Center in Myrtle Beach. Patty was especially fond of Baba’s sister, Mani, and loved to talk of meeting her.
She gave a lifetime of service — first caring for four younger siblings and her own three children, and forty years of hospital work. In keeping with her giving spirit, she donated her body to medical science at the University of Texas Medical Center.
Patty was the mother of Baba-lover Anne Barker and a wonderful mother-in-law to Chris Barker. She lived with them for the last few years of her life, and they enjoyed weekly Baba-meetings together.
Happy Trails, Patty!
