Betty White Dickinson was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She was Past Honored Queen of Job's Daughters in Grand Rapids. She performed and taught dance at the Calla Travis Dance Studio and retained a lifelong interest in the arts. During her long and happy marriage to the late R. Keith Dickinson, also from Grand Rapids, Betty lived in Northbrook, Illinois, Shreveport, Louisiana and Chappaqua, New York before finally settling in Houston. Betty and Keith enjoyed traveling together, especially to Africa on safari and to Kona Village in Hawaii. Betty was a longtime volunteer, and the many organizations which benefited from her devoted service include Lighthouse of the Blind, Methodist Hospital and the Republican Party. She was very active in community theater, including serving as President of the Chappaqua Drama Group in New York and in many capacities at Houston's Country Playhouse. Recent volunteer service has been centered around the Unity Church in Houston.

Betty will be greatly missed by family and friends. She is survived by daughter, Debra Dickinson; son, Barry Dickinson and wife, Kathy; son, Robert Dickinson and wife Kathy, grandchildren; Alex, Jennifer, Emily, Samantha and Zachary; great-granddaughter, Jane; and her cherished dog, Kasey.

A memorial service was held on May 29, 2009, at the Unity Church of Christianity.
