Eileen Elizabeth (Lucht) Dickinson of Glen, MN (Sugar Lake), formerly of Mora, MN, passed away on September 19, 2018 at her daughter Kelly’s house in Circle Pines, MN. She was 82 years old.

Eileen was born at home September 23, 1935 in Whited Township, Kanabec County, MN to Edward and Florence (Brandt) Lucht. She was raised on a farm and attended Quamba school (1st – 8th) and graduated from Mora High School in 1953. She married her high school sweetheart Harlow Dickinson on August 14, 1954. From this marriage 5 children were born. Many fond memories were made on the farm followed by a move to town in 1972.

Eileen was employed at Tinker & Johnson’s, Kanabec Hardware, and Grace Lutheran Church for 22 years until she retired in 1995. They purchased a lake home in 1983 on Sugar Lake. She was a member of Grace Lutheran Church of Mora and Bethesda Lutheran Church of Malmo, MN.

She enjoyed cooking, baking, crocheting and dancing with dad. But she found her greatest joy in playing card games with her children and grandchildren. Mom loved to see her family spending time and enjoying themselves at the lake. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Harlow, son Barry, and sister Ruby Okerstrom.

Eileen is survived by her children, Brad (Mary Kay), Barb (Kurt) Neitzel, Brenda, and Kelly (Charles) Oehrlein; daughter-in-law Colette; 10 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren; sister Edith Gorham; sister-in-law Genell Klande; many other relatives and friends.

    So sorry for your loss. I will miss the contacts with Eileen over the years. We were high school classmates and were together in our “Lucky 13” group of girlfriends in high school. We have been Facebook and email friends and connected that way when it was no longer easy to physically get together.
