Kathleen Rose Dickinson

July 21, 1946 — April 7, 2022

Kathleen Rose Bell Dickinson, 75, passed away Thursday, April 7, 2022. Kathleen was born on July 21, 1946 in Atlantic City, NJ to Henry and Kathleen Bell. She moved to Prairie Village, KS and attended Queen of the Holy Rosary Elementary School, Bishop Miege HS and graduated from St. Margaret’s Hospital School of Nursing in 1967. She married Captain William R. Dickinson in October 1967 and traveled the world until they landed in Overland Park after Bill left active-duty military service. She worked for Shawnee Mission and Blue Valley School Districts as a special needs paraprofessional for 20 years and received a Kansas Ambassador Award.

Kathleen is survived by her loving husband Bill of 54 years and her four children: Mike (Stephanie) Dickinson, Kimberly (Sean) Bailey, Mark (Meredith) Dickinson and Kelly (Randy) Price, and her seven grandchildren: Hunter, Tyler, Lindsey, Erin, Lauren, Samantha, and Finley. Her grandchildren knew her as Grandma KK and to her they were everything. She also leaves behind her sister Mimi (Don) Gillespie and brother Chris Bell. She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Kay Bell, and her brother, Michael Bell.

Kathleen had a strong love for the Lord and a giving heart. She spent much of her time volunteering at her parish, Church of the Holy Cross and participated in Women of Holy Cross, St Theresa Circle, church decorating, Catholic Charities and overall giving to anyone that she came across that needed help.

Kathleen was deeply loved by many and will be greatly missed. Memorial contributions may be made to Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas ( https://catholiccharitiesks.org/ ).
