Dickinson, Hannah A. (18 Mar. 1843 - 10 Jan. 1928)


Hannah A. Beale was born in Juniata County, Penn., March 18, 1843, and died after an illness of five weeks, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Aug. Strebe at Abbotsford, Tuesday, Jan. 10, 1928, aged 84 years, 9 months and 21 days.

She came to Illinois with her parents in June 1852, where she lived until her marriage to Reynolds Hill Dickinson on August 3, 1865. She came to Wisconsin in 1875.

Her husband died Sept. 17, 1896. She moved to Abbotsford from Riverside in 1911 and has made her home here since. She leaves five children to mourn her loss: Geo. B. Dickinson of Riverside, Mrs. A. L. Cramer of Venice, Calif., Earl Dickenson of Milwaukee, Mrs. Robert Hamilton of Colby and Mrs. Aug. Sterbe (Strebe) of Abbotsford; also 24 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Mary Kelley of Earlville, Ill.

She has been a member of the Presbyterian church since childhood.

The funeral was held Friday afternoon, Jan. 13, 1928, from the Presbyterian church in Abbotsford, where she attended as long as she was able.

Rev. Falgren of Unity, preached the sermon and the pall-bearers were six of her grandsons. She was laid to rest in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery beside her husband. She had a loving, patient way with her, and will be greatly missed by all her relatives and friends.


We wish to express our thanks to the friends and neighbors for their kindness and sympathy during the death and burial of our dear mother; to all those who gave flowers; to the Choir and Mrs. McClaren; and to all those who furnished cars.

Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Dickinson
