Mary Magdeline Dickerson Vernon, 100, passed away peacefully on September 6, 2023. She was born on April 11, 1923 to the late Notable Dickerson and the late Elizabeth Milhauser Dickerson. She was married to the late William Irvin Vernon, Sr.
She was a faithful member of Alton Baptist Church. Mary was a hard worker who put her all into everything she did, she never backed down from her daily tasks whether it was on the farm or at the house, her favorite task was to wash the dishes as she looked out of the window at the beautiful birds in her yard. More than anything, Mary loved her family and was dedicated to each of them.

Bonnie Smith (Ronnie) of Farmville, Va
William “Billy” Irvin Vernon, Jr. (Bonnie) of Alton
Grady Leon Vernon (Joan) of Alton
Nineteen Great Grandchildren
