Holt, Jessica Dickinson - Fort Atkinson  
Jessica Dickinson Holt 1934—2016 Jessica Dickinson Holt, 81, died peacefully June 7, 2016, in her home along the Rock River in Fort Atkinson, WI, due to complications from Parkinson's disease. Jessica was born October 22, 1934, in Lake Geneva, WI to Albert Boyd Dickinson (The Albert Dickinson Seed Company) and Bernice Latimer Dickinson (Meininger) where she grew up on the historic family farm. She attended the University of Colorado where she was a DG and found her passion for the mountains and skiing. She later worked as a medical records business administrator at Passavant Hospital in downtown Chicago. In 1960, she married Edward B. Holt, a patent attorney and law partner, and moved to Rockford, IL. While raising four children, Jessica was an active member of the community; she was president of the Junior League; an elected member of the Winnebago County Board, and a tireless volunteer for the arts, youth and schools. In the summers, Jessica brought her family back to Lake Geneva, where they swam and laughed in a tumult of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Later in life, Jessica returned to her first love – art – taking painting courses at Rockford College, supporting the Rockford art scene and eventually receiving a Masters in Fine Arts in Painting from the University of Illinois Chicago. She participated in solo and small group shows at Roy Boyd Gallery, Abel Joseph Gallery and Randolph Street Gallery in Chicago. Her husband died in 1985, and a few years later, she was drawn back to the open spaces of the west - moving to a 70 acre ranch near Parkman, WY. She continued to show her art at the Rockford Art Museum, Nicholayson Art Museum and Ucross Foundation in addition to being invited to participate in international artists' residencies at Italy, Iceland, and Canada. She went back for a second Masters degree in Philosophy at Colorado State University, and founded the The Bauen Camp which lasted from 2000 to 2010, inspiring hundreds of underserved teen artists, muralists, poets, actors, dancers, writers, and musicians from urban, rural and Native American communities from across the US. In 2007, for her Bauen Camp work, Jessica was noted as a Purpose Prize Civic Ventures Fellow via a program at Stanford. In 2012, after 22 years, Jessica moved back home to Wisconsin, to be close to family because of health concerns. Jessica "Grannie" lived passionately for and was inspired by the love of her family, the laughter of her grandchildren and the possibility of life changing work & play for people of all ages and backgrounds in the arts, garden and the natural world. She is survived by her four children, Cynthia (Jeremy Pinc) Holt, Melissa (Tom) Moore, Nancy Wright, and Douglas (Tuba Ustuner) Holt; sisters, Nancy Tenney Picken, Lois Whiting, Susan (Bob) Morton, and Sarah (Dick) Baker; grandchildren, Lachlan, Clara, Alice, Ella, Asa, Ali, Kaya, and one on the way; fifteen nieces, nephews, and numerous grand-nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward B. Holt. A public celebration of Jessica D. Holt's life will be held at Horticultural Hall in Lake Geneva, WI on Sunday, July 31. In honor of Jessica's passionate life in the arts, please wear artist colors. For additional details, visit Jessica's Story on Facebook.
