She is preceded in death by her husband, Sam Dickens Sr.; infant son, Barry Thomas Dickens; and her parents.

She is survived by her loving son, Sam Dickens, Jr, and wife Tammie; her sister and best friend, Betty Foster; two grandsons and their wives, Trey and Anna Dickens; Thomas and Heather Dickens; three great-grandchildren, Jackson, Blake, and Luke; along with many other relatives and friends.
