Dickerson Kathy was a longtime resident of the Springside section of Burlington Twp. She was a graduate of Burlington Twp. High School, Class of 1968. Kathy married December 17, 1968 to Adrian M.

Upon their return to New Jersey, Kathy worked for the Masonic Home as a secretary in the physical therapy dept. Later she worked for Moorestown Visiting Nurses as an assistant to the fund raising coordinator and finally at the Githens Center in Mt. Holly in the same capacity. Summer was the best time of year for Kathy. She enjoyed being up early to take her walks, loved the NJ shore and when she was in Florida she couldn't get enough of the beaches, sunshine and warm ocean. Kathy was funny, witty, kind, and had one of the biggest hearts, always saw the good in people and was an all around loving and wonderful person. She and her husband Adrian have been lifelong soul mates for 55 years, since she was 13 and he was 14. They were married for 50 wonderful years.
