Berniece's Story

WYTOPITLOCK AND SANTA CLAUS HILL - Berniece "Bunny" Katherine (Dicker) Brown, 92, passed away peacefully on October 28, 2015 in Lincoln with her family at her side.

Bunny attended Presque Isle Normal School as a young woman. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and was a member of Alpha Lyre. She and her husband Ted had three sons, Dick, Buster and Les. Bunny was a visiting homemaker for the folks in the area after she'd raised her children, and at 80 years old was still making meals and delivering them to the older folks in the town. She was a Red Sox fan, a birdwatcher, well-connected to the goings on in the town and made famous declarations that her family will forever repeat. It doesn't just rain, it rains "pitchforks and barn shovels," we will never be just busy, we'll be "busier than a one armed paper hanger" and "lazier than a home soldier."

She is survived by her sons: Buster and Les Brown; Daughter-in-law, Julie; 5 grandchildren: Lisa, Dee, Holly, Shawn, Nikki; a very special granddaughter-in-law, Mags; 12 great-grandchildren: Rachael, Brittany, DJ, Darcy, Ariel, Justin, Cassie, Alex, Katie, Tyler, Haley and Gavin; and 3 great-great grandchildren: Aria, Benjamin and Bradley; and sister in-law: Betty Lent. Bunny was predeceased by her parents, Carl and Ellen Dicker, her sister Charlene (Dicker) Rideout, her husband, Ted, her son Richard and daughter-in-law, Linda, and 3 grandsons: Ricky, Jason and Tom, who are all waiting for her on the other side.
