Mary F Dickensheets

Dickensheets, Mary F., born in Dayton, Ohio on April 14, 1942. Mom gained her angel wings and flew straight to Heaven on December 26, 2023. Preceded in death by her loving husband Tom on September 1, 2023. Survived by her sons Tim and Todd, her daughters Laura (Paul) Guess and Louann (Mike) Lee. Mary adored her five grandchildren: Andrew (Jamie) Guess, Zach (Kayla) Guess, Marissa Ratcliffe, Matthew Ratcliffe, and Megan Lee. She has one great granddaughter, Lily Guess and one on the way. Survived by her brother, Paul Tegenkamp and her sister, Janet Sheen, and several nieces and nephews.


Mary worked for her family business, The Dayton Church Supply, Inc. all of her life as the bookkeeper. She loved working alongside her family members including her mom, dad, brother, sister, aunts, uncles, nieces, and daughter.


Mary was an absolutely amazing Mom and completely devoted to caring for her family, especially her son, Todd. She was a girl scout leader, a true friend to many, and a mentor to many with special needs children. A very special thank you to our wonderful neighbors, many friends, and terrific caregivers who helped Mom care for Todd over all of the years. Mary was truly an angel here on earth!


Mary suffered with dementia the last several years of her life and was lovingly cared for at Symphony of Centerville. Thank you to all of her caregivers and the staff at Ohio Hospice of Dayton for their care of Mom, especially nurse Christina.


Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, January 6, 2024 at Holy Angels Catholic Church. The family will receive friends at the Church from 10:00 am. to 11:00 am. Mass will be officiated by Fr. Dan Meyer at 11:00 am. Final resting place will be at Calvary Cemetery following Mass. A celebration of life will take place after the service.


In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Ohio Hospice of Dayton, 324 Wilmington Ave. Dayton, Ohio 45420 or Stillwater Center, 8100 N. Main St. 45415.


Mary made sure all were welcome at her house. We will forever remember all of the wonderful family dinners and the amazing Christmas celebrations. We find it comforting to know that she passed away at Christmas time. Watch over us and shower us with your blessings. We hope that you and Dad are vacationing on a beach together getting to enjoy the rewards for all of the sacrifices you made for your family! Rest in peace, Mom! No more suffering! You are finally HOME!
