Judith “Judy” Diane Dickey, 74, of Lyonsville, passed away suddenly on April 9, 2022 at her home.

She was born May 16, 1947 in Connersville to Deloris Ilean Roszell Sullivan and attended Connersville Schools, later earning her GED.

On October 27, 1963, she was married to the love of her life, Delbert Dickey.

Judy was employed for 24 years as the head cook/supervisor for the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department, retiring in 2018 so she and Delbert could be full time grandparents to Avery and Nova.

In her leisure, she loved to gamble at area casinos. She also enjoyed shopping for her loved ones, and since Covid, she learned she also enjoyed shopping on Amazon. Most of all, she loved spending time with family and friends.

Judy was the rock of her family. She and Delbert welcomed her younger siblings into their home after the passing of her mother. She spent her entire life caring for others, whether it be family, friends, co-workers, or the inmates/trustees that she cared for deeply. She was always willing to help anyone who needed it.

Survivors include her husband of 58 years, Delbert Dickey; three brothers, Donnie (Carol) Sullivan, David (Wilma) Sullivan, and Lonnie Sullivan, all of Connersville; a sister, Lora (Steve) Steele of Connersville; and nieces and nephews, Rachel, Jessica, Camille, Corinne, Brianne, Dustin, Derek, David, Chad, Tina, Theresa, Ginger, Bobby, Delbert, Jeannie, and B.J. Judy and Delbert raised a niece, Angel Ball, and two great nephews, Dylan Sizemore and Johnathon Kuhns (Jayla). They were also “grandparents” to two little ladies who kept them on their toes, the two they loved most in life and who will miss their “Mama” terribly, Avery and Nova, twin daughters of Johnathon Kuhns and Analissa Wildridge.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Ernie and Bob Sullivan; and her favorite cousin, Richard Lee Henry, Sr.

Per the family’s wishes, there will be no services. Miller, Moster, Robbins Funeral Home has been entrusted with the arrangements.
