On December 21, 1946 in New Castle, Pennsylvania, Jennie was united in marriage to Harold Chester Dicks, Sr. Lieutenant Colonel Harold Chester Dicks, Sr. entered into rest in 1982.
She is survived by one daughter and son-in-law: Pamela and George Timson of Rolla, MO and one son and Daughter and Son-In-law: Mark and Donna Dicks of Talent, Oregon. Beloved grandsons: Joel Faucett, Seth Faucett and Craig Timson and two great-grandchildren: Thomas and Joanna.
Jennie and Harold lived in many places due to his career in the Air Force. They had homes in Japan, Virginia, Illinois, Hawaii, the Philippines, Missouri and Pennsylvania. They raised three children. Their oldest son, Harold Jr., had Down Syndrome. At the time of his birth, doctors recommended that they place him in an institution. Instead, they made sure he enjoyed the same quality of life as his siblings. Jennie achieved much in her life as a military wife, but her most treasured accomplishment was her family.
