June 16, 1919 – Dec. 28, 2012

June Hansen Dickens, age 93, passed away Dec. 28, 2012. She was born June 16, 1919, in Fielding, Utah, to Ariel and Gertrude Hansen.

After graduating from Bear River High School in 1937, June moved to Los Angeles where she met her husband, Alvin T. Dickens. They worked together in real estate, purchasing, building and operating motels and other properties. Over the years, they resided in Hollywood, Burbank and El Segundo with their five children.

Though she did not receive a college degree, June took classes and became expert in several areas. She was an avid reader and possessed numerous skills. She received a certificate in counseling, and her listening ear provided support to many.

In retirement, June took up photography as a hobby, creating a visual record of her travels throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and the Middle East. After moving to Davis in 1989, she became a member of Woodland Camera Club. Her stunning nature photos won awards, including a Best of Show at the California State Fair.

June delighted in her family and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband; daughter, Dee Ann Dickens; grandson, Sam Emerson; one brother (Earl Hansen); and two sisters (Alta Schaack and Adele Frisbey). Surviving are sister Delores Barrett and brother Farrel (Peggy) Hansen, along with children Terry (Vicky) Dickens, Nadine (Kent) Pinkerton, Karen Emerson and Bruce (Joanne) Dickens, as well as 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

She had been an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

A visitation will be at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 4, 2013, followed by funeral services at 11 a.m. Friday at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 785 Elmwood Drive, Davis. Interment will be at Inglewood Park Cemetery in Inglewood. Funeral arrangements are provided by Wiscombe Funeral Home of Davis.
