A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says,
(Jr and Debbie) Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage,
(Dickerson and Jefferson Family), Im counting onyou.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all how I truly was blessed... (g8yrs).
Continue traditions, the family reunion, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, family, dont worry about falls.
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes, were together again.

MARIE DICKERSON WRIGHT was born on March 23,
1923, to the late Marion Dickerson, Sr. and Gertrude
Dickerson in McBean, Georgia. Marie was the tenth
child of ten children. She was preceded in death by her
husband, Jordon Wright of forty-four years.
Marie was baptized at an early age at Spirit Creek
Baptist Church, Augusta, Georgia. Later in life, she
joined Tabernacle Baptist Church under the leadership
of Reverend Charles Spencer Hamilton. Accordingly
during her sixty-five years of membership, she
faithfully served as a member of the Sanctuary Choir,
a Deaconess, a Mother of the Church, and in various
other ministries. Marie was also a lifelong member
of the New Era Missionary Baptist Convention of
Georgia, Inc.
Marie was educated in the Richmond County School
System. She worked as a secretary at Pilgrim Health &
Life Insurance Company, Augusta, Georgia for forty-
plus years. Marie also worked diligently with her
hands: gardening, sewing, and cooking delicious meals
for her family and friends which were some of her
favorite things to do.
Marie lived her life with enthusiasm and exuberance.
She moved through life with grace and charisma with
an amazing capacity to love and give to others. She was
known for her exquisite taste: her suits, hats, shoes,
and jewelry always made a statement. She never left a
room until she shared a hug and a smile.
Loving memories will be cherished by: her son, Elias
Burton, Jr. (Debbie), Augusta, Georgia; grandson, Rico
T. Partlow, Atlanta, Georgia; stepdaughters, Reverend
Darlene Cooley (Matthew), and Marilyn Taylor (Greg),
both of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; and a host of
grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other loving relatives
and friends.
Dont grieve for me, for now Im free.
Im following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
to laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
oh yes, these things, I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My lifes been full, I savored much;
good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seems all too brief;
dont lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.
