Services were held earlier this week for Anne Therese (Portegys) Dickson of South Ugstad Road, Proctor. She died Wed., Apr. 7, 2004, in St. Luke's Hospital. She was 87.

She was born on March 19, 1917 in Libertyville, Ill. to Peter and Gertrude (DeBoer) Portegys. Anne had been a Proctor resident since 1942.

She married Franklin H. Dickson, M.D. on Oct. 14, 1939. Anne was a homemaker. In earlier years, she drove the St. Rose School bus, when it was just a station wagon. Anne was an avid gardener, Minnesota Twins fan and loved fishing. She cherished times at her cabin on Aerie Lake where she passionately watched eagles, which nested very near her cabin. Her driving force was her love for her family, which kept her going through many adversities. Anne was an active member of St. Rose Catholic Parish, Proctor Women of the Moose and was a charter member of the Aerie Lake Association.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Dr. Frank Dickson in 1984, sons Franklin III in 2002, Michael in 1965 and Peter in 1955, brothers James and Peter, and sisters Nellie, Gertrude, Kathryn and Mary.

Survivors include sons John R. 'Jack' and Thomas A. (Collette), both of Proctor, daughters Victoria (Brian) Blauer of Sartell, Minn. and Deborah (David 'Scotty') McLeod of Proctor, grandchildren Anne Dickson, Toshi (Jason) Ruprecht, Brianna and Erin Blauer, Mackenzie (Angie), Nicholas and Rozalin Dickson and Scott (Heidi) and Michael (fiancee, Amanda Kolquist) McLeod; and great-grandchildren Ian, Abby, Rebekeh, Kieran, Valencia, Tatianna, Jace, Kaleb and Nolan. The family would like to thank Dr. Thomas Heinitz and St. Luke's ER staff for their kindness.

Burial will be in Wauconda Cemetery, Wauconda, Ill. If so desired, memorial contributions may be directed to St. Rose Catholic Church or the donor's choice.
