Twylla was born January 19, 1935, in Carbon, IA, the youngest of three children of Lillian and Cliffton Haley. She graduated from Corning High School with the Class of 1953 and married Victor Dicks on September 6, 1953, at the Strand Lutheran Church. Victor and Twylla moved to Villisca and raised four children, Alan, Arnie, Victor (Buzz) and Carla. She was also the grandmother of nine grandchildren. She is also survived by her older sister, Lois Wilkerson.
Besides her jobs as wife and mother, she also worked at the Adams County Home, Montgomery County Social Services and as a bus driver for the Villisca School District. Her hobbies included reading, sewing, embroidering and quilting. Her easy going nature allowed her to enjoy the company of anyone that she was with.
Preceding Twylla in death are her parents; her loving husband Victor Dicks in 1997; and a brother, Jack Haley.
Although Twylla will be greatly missed,
her love and inspiration will live on through her family.
