Judith Faye Bowman Dickerson (Judy), age 79, passed away in her home in Plano, TX on September 4, 2020. Her funeral will be held at the Prestonwood Baptist Church Chapel at 11:00am, September 9 with visitation an hour before the service. Her battles with life-threatening illnesses for the past three years ended in victory as she entered her home in the presence of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Relatives in DeRidder, Louisiana cared for her from August 2019 to August 26, 2020, when she was evacuated to her home in Texas to escape hurricane Laura.

Judy is survived by her son Michael Dickerson, her grandson Daniel Dickerson, her siblings—Patricia Bowman Hammonds of Birmingham, AL; Sandra Bowman Burk and husband Dennis of DeRidder, LA; Raymond Everett Bowman, Jr. and wife Jocelyn of Ragley, LA—and a host of nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly. She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward Hoy Dickerson, her father Raymond Everett Bowman, Sr., her mother Dorothy Knight Bowman Newsom Foote, and her sister Jean Bowman Harvey.

Judy was born in Lake Charles, LA on November 20, 1940. At two months she began her residence in Uptonville, TN and later Jackson, TN. She attended Jackson High School but left at the end of her eleventh grade year when her widowed mother returned the family to Lake Charles, her hometown. In 1958, Judy graduated from LaGrange High School and began pursuing a nursing degree at McNeese State. Later, she transferred to St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Fort Worth, Texas. She met Edward Hoy Dickerson while in Texas, and they married in 1960.

During the years of their marriage, Judy proved to be a very professional executive assistant in several major technology companies in the Dallas area. She was very knowledgeable and proficient in those positions (TI, DSC, VAC, Exalted, Alcatel).

She was always active in a Southern Baptist Church from the time she was a toddler. Her faith and salvation experience were real and very much reflected in her life. She and Hoy loved working with preschoolers in the churches in which they actively served. Her many years at Prestonwood were both a growing in her faith and a joy to her soul. Judy will be greatly missed by all who knew her and loved her. She is the first of the Bowman siblings to go to her eternal home. We celebrate her home-going, but greatly grieve our loss.
