Janet Lynn Dickson

August 12, 1955 — April 12, 2023

My wife, Janet Lynn Dickson, died on April 12, 2023. An Air Force kid, she was born in Morocco while here parents were stationed there. Janet grew up in Arlington, Virginia and attended Wakefield High School and Radford College. In lieu of flowers I ask that you donate to the Alzheimer's Association at < >.

She is survived by husband Randolph Dickson, brother Lt. Col. Derwin Bradley Jr. (USAF Ret.), children Major D.J. Courtney and Major Nicole Chappell and step-daughter Courtney Wiggins and our dog Daisy. Janet was predeceased by her beloved sister Diana Schumaker, mother Katherine Davis and father Lt. Col. Derwin Bradley (USAF).

Janet was especially proud of her children, serving in the US Army, both rising to the rank of Major. She took a lot of pride in being an "Army Mom". Janet also absolutely adored her grandchildren Ellie and James with Nikki, and Maxwell and Caroline with D.J. and Christine and Thomas with Courtney.
Janet and her sister Diana had a special kinship that went beyond sisterhood. Their sense of humor was unique and usually quite hysterical. Her sense of humor was one of the many qualities in Janet that attracted me to her. Her love of the Washington Redskins was legendary. There will be great emptiness in the house without Janet yelling and cussing at the TV during any football game, Atlanta Braves games and Formula 1 races.

I would be remiss if I did not mention that we often talked of going over the Rainbow Bridge and being greeted by beloved pets Teddy, Sweetness, Romeo, Chip and Lance. Janet loved her animals more than anything. She loved horses too, having ridden quite a lot when she was young. She always said that she wanted to have her ashes spread somewhere that horses ran and I will honor that wish. I will also have some of the ashes put into a glass sculpture call the "Eternal Flame" so I will always have her with me.
She was loved by all and a friend to everyone and I am heartbroken she is gone. She was my best friend and I miss her more than words can express.
