In Memoriam

Mary June Dickinson, 99

June 25, 1922 – May 3, 2022

Mary June Dickinson

COOPERSTOWN – Mary June Dickinson, of Penn Yan and formerly Cooperstown, was a beloved great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, mother-in-law and wife during her incredible 99 (almost 100) years of life. She went to be with her Lord peacefully on May 3, 2022. She was affectionately known as “Mama” to her family and many friends.

Mary was born June 25, 1922 to Charles and Louise (Carey) Klein in New York City and was educated there. She met her husband, Pershing Dickinson, who was stationed with the United States Army Band at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, and they were married June 27, 1943. She was always proud of her New York City roots, and a steadfast example of someone who lived during the “Greatest Generation”. She was patriotic and loved God and her country, her entire life.

After World War II ended, Mary and Pershing settled in the charming village of Cooperstown, NY where Pershing was a Music Teacher at Cooperstown Central School.  Later, Mary worked as the Secretary to the Principal at Cooperstown Elementary School-a job she held and loved for 25 years.  They both cherished their years living in the town known as “The Home of Baseball”, raising their two children.
