Obituary of Hilary Gretchen Munn Dickinson

Hilary Gretchen Munn Dickinson was called home to the Lord on Monday, November 8, 2021 after a short battle with cancer. She was born on June 11, 1970 in Florida and moved to South Carolina at a young age.

After graduating from Airport High School and the University of South Carolina, Gretchen worked in various administrative positions with healthcare-related companies, including DHEC and Encompass Health.

On December 9, 2000, she married the love of her life, Don Dickinson.

Gretchen always had a smile to share. She was known for her beautiful spirit, cheerful outlook, and consideration of others. She was an avid church attendee and loved to aid the church in any manner possible, but never took the spotlight.

She was preceded in death by her father, Harold D. Munn; and her two beloved pugs, Chuckles and Giggles. Gretchen is survived by her husband, Don M. Dickinson; her mother, Jane B. Munn; and her animal companion, Damon. Other family members include: Heather Little (Jason, Emory, Bryson), Don Dickinson, Jr. (Anna, Madison and James), Richard O. Dickinson (Robin, Taylor, Tayler, Sydney Lang (Hudson and Ripley)) and Kevin Dickinson (Jennifer, KJ, and Harper).

“We are confident, and willing to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.”

II Corinthians 5:8
