FREMONT: Linda (Craig) Dickman, 66, of Fremont, Ohio passed away quietly on March 14, 2014 at her residence, surrounded by her family, following a long fight with breast cancer.

Born October 5, 1947 in Fremont to Roy and Louise (Young) Craig, Linda was a graduate of Green Springs High School and later earned her LPN degree from Providence School of Nursing. She worked for many years in a local physician's office and area nursing facilities caring for others.

Linda loved reading, gardening, and gaming with her husband and friends. She most especially loved spending time with her grandchildren. She was a true and loyal fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Cleveland Browns, and the Detroit Tigers.

Linda is survived by her husband of 43 years, Thomas R. Dickman; her mother Louise; children Randy (Emily) Dickman of Elmore, Laura (Brett) Novak of Lyndhurst and Eric Dickman of Fremont; her beloved grandchildren Madeline, Brandon, Ellison, and Grayson; siblings Marcia (Jon) Abbott, Fred (Christine) Craig, and Lou Anne Craig; and numerous nieces and nephews. Linda was preceded in death by her father, Roy; and brothers Geoffrey (Michael) Craig and John ("Tuna") Craig.

Friends may call at the Mitchell-Auxter Funeral Home, 218 S. Main St., Clyde, from 4:00 to 8:00 on Tues., March 18. A service to celebrate Linda's life will be held on Wednesday, March 19th at 10:30 am at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Clyde. A private graveside service will be held at a later date.

The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the staff of the Bellevue Hospital and Hospice of Memorial Hospital for the excellent care that was provided to Linda in her last days and the sincere caring that they extended to the family.
