Sarah's Story

BRADFORD - Sarah E. Dickson, 84, wife of the late Harold "Haddy" W. Dickson, passed away March 26, 2015, at her home. She was born December 30, 1930, in Oakfield, the daughter of Howard A. and Stella M. (Brewer) Drew. She was very proud of her Aroostook heritage.

Sarah had a long and fulfilling teaching career of 53 years. She taught 47 years at the Dr. Lewis S. Libby School in Milford from 1961 until her retirement in 2009. She loved teaching and thoroughly enjoyed every one of her students. She also worked many weekends at Anna King's Store in Bradford. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends at their camp on Boyd Lake. Sarah was a member of the VFW in Charleston and the Hampden Ladies Auxiliary Post No. 4633.

Sarah is survived by a sister, Pauline E. Drew of Wethersfield, CT. She was predeceased by her husband of 43 years, Haddy, who died in 2000; two brothers, Herbert Drew and Kilburn Drew; and a special aunt, Anna King.

As was Sarah's wish, she was able to live out her life in the comfort of her home. She had three wonderful caregivers, Carla, Gail and Linda. Her family also extends a very grateful thank you to the staff of St. Joseph's Homecare and Hospice for their support and compassion.
