September 8, 1989- November 9, 2012 Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints in the snow. I am the sun ripened on grain; I am the gentle autumns rain. When you wake in the mornings; Hush, I am the swift uplifting rush. Of quiet birds in circled flight; I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there I did not die.
Brittany Nicole Dicken, 23, of Little Hocking, Ohio passed from this earth as a result of a fatal car accident on November 9, 2012.
She was a homemaker and also worked outside the home. Brittany loved and lived life to its fullest each and every day. She loved everyone, she loved her animals, the trees, green grass, autumn leaves and her wild flowers. She also was an organ donor and as of right now there are eight other lives that she will be able to save, so that someone else can have the quality of life that she believed everyone should have.
Brittany is survived by her husband, Chad Dicken of two years, her daughter, Audrey Ann Dicken, 8 months old, her mother, Michelle M. (Yeamans) Slagle, her father, James Pinkerton and stepfather, Randy Messer, Jr., brother, Dustin Slagle, grandparents, Wayne & Cathy Carver, and Frederick & Joyce Carr, mother and father- in-law, Chris & Judy Dicken.
She is preceded in death by grandparents, Henry & Sharon Ann Judy.
She loved all her many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and her extended family, Ted, Dorothy, and Carrie Barth who will all dearly miss her love of life, her vibrant personality and most of all her beautiful smile.
A private service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to The Elks Lodge #477, c/o Michelle Slagle, 414
Colegate Dr., Marietta, OH 45750.
