Obituary

Regina Mae Waters Dickerson was born November 16, 1934 in Pocomoke City, Maryland to the late Harvey and Elsie Waters. She completed her earthly journey in the early morning of August 4, 2019.

Regina attended grade school at Tindley’s Chapel and later transitioned to Worcester County Public Schools. Although she didn’t complete high school, she later pursued her General Education Diploma in a local community center.

Regina grew up attending church at St. Luke United Methodist Church, she and her family transitioned to Trinity United Methodist Church. After marriage, she joined Dea’s Chapel United Methodist Church, where she served as lay leader, member of the Pastor Parish Committee, Finance Chairperson, Kitchen Committee, and choir. She loved to praise and worship her Lord and Savior. Regina was a faithful servant for approximately sixty-five years. It was during this time, in which she pursued a deeper more meaningful relationship with God. She later attended Bible school at Del Marva Evangelistic Church, where she received a certificate in ministry.

Regina was united in holy matrimony to the late John “Jack” Dickerson on May 28, 1953, and they were married for fifty-five years. Their union bore four children: Donald, Jeffery, Kathy, and Kimberly.

She was employed at Bird’s Eye, Buddy Boys, and P & L Poultry Plants. She was also employed at the family business, “Dickerson Texaco” in the heart of Horntown. Later, she studied and became a government employee, as a certified USDA Poultry Inspector. She retired from this position on January 31, 1998 after twenty-five years of service. Regina later returned to the workforce as a cafeteria worker for the Accomack County Public Schools. A job she loved and was a blessing to the teachers, children and coworkers. She also retired from this position.

Regina enjoyed cooking Sunday dinners for her family, friends, and community. There could be ten to fifteen people at her home on Sunday, eating her famous chicken and dumplings and “homemade yeast rolls.” During the holidays, you were sure to enjoy a slice of her good ole’ sweet potato pie. She enjoyed cooking for others and watching them eat. Another favorite past time was watching soap operas and chatting with her sisters about the storyline.

Regina was more than a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and sister to those she loved; she was a devoted friend. She has nurtured and cared for many who call her “Momma Regina,” and she welcomed them with open arms. Even on her travels to Florida, she adopted spiritual daughters. She gained the respect of many, because she did not waste word but gave the truth in love.

Regina was preceded in her death by her husband; oldest son, Donald Dickerson; daughter-in-law, Diane Dickerson; grandson, Donald “D.J.” Dickerson, Jr.; and siblings, Thomas Waters, Betty Ann Taylor, Sylvester Waters, and Theodore Waters; seven brothers-in-law; and five sisters-in-law.

She leaves to cherish fond memories her children, Jeffery Dickerson of New Church, VA, Kathy Miller (Elmer) of Horntown, VA, Kimberly Pough (Rodney) of Pensacola, FL, and step-son, Gary Cropper (Debbie) of Millsboro, DE; grandchildren, Shelly Strand (William), Deea Cropper, Arthur “A.J.” Pitts, Jr., and Kelly Tull (Marcus); great-grandchildren, Valdase Morris, Valnisha Morris, Ayneah Pitts, and Mikaili Donmoyer; brothers, Harvey ”Woody” Waters, Jr. and Franklin Waters; sisters, Edna Waters and Gladys McNeil (Gene); three brothers-in-law; four sisters-in-law; nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
