Sandra Dickman Obituary

Sandra L. "Sandy” Dickman, 81 years old, of Sandusky, passed away Friday, December 1, 2023, at Hope Hospice House in Cape Coral, FL. Born on February 10, 1942, in Dayton, Ohio. She was a graduate of Xenia High School and a Veteran, having served in the US Navy in 1960. Sandy and her late husband, Leon, had owned and operated two I.G.A. grocery stores; one in Xenia, OH in 1974 during the Tornado that destroyed a large portion of Xenia. The I.G.A. was the only grocery store standing in Xenia, a miracle from above. Later, the couple owned and operated another I.G.A. in St. Mary’s, OH. Sandy also sold Tupperware for many years. She loved that Leon would assist her in the business by helping set-up, keeping her company, and often selling the products.

Sandy enjoyed swimming, watching old movies, cooking, and spending time with family and friends. She was also known to love dancing, playing pool, and had an enthusiasm for life. She was a member of The Chapel and enjoyed the Saturday evening services. Sandy volunteered at O.V.H., Stein Hospice, the Sandusky Library and the Erie County Senior Center.

Sandy is survived by oldest daughter, Deborah (Steve) Jenkins of N. Fort Myers, FL; a son, Jack (Lee) Dickman of Rathdrum, ID; youngest daughter, Nora “Suzy” (Paul) Warrer of Sandusky, formerly Daniel Harpel; six grandchildren, Ashley (Jenkins) Ohlemacher, Chelsey (Jenkins) Ponzi; Brett Dickman, Cearra (Dickman) Kunsel; Michael and Joshua Harpel; twelve great grandchildren, Gianna, Chase, Dominic; Hailee, Alyssa, Tiernie; Ambrielle, Brody, Braylin, Aurora, Bentley, Brendan.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Nora Edna (Jenkins) Kidd on February 15, 1995; husband, Leon H. Dickman on November 13, 2006.

At Sandy’s request no visitation will be held, and cremation has taken place. The family will have a private graveside service for Sandy and her late husband at the Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery, in Rittman, OH later this year.
