Obituary: Dorinda Dimmick Vick

Dorinda Dimmick Vick

Dorinda Dimmick Vick passed away peacefully in the presence of her husband and children on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, in Prescott, Ariz., after a brief but courageous battle with leukemia.

Dori, as so many knew her, was born in Chardon, Ohio, on Jan. 5, 1938. Dori came to Arizona in 1956 to attend college at the U of A in Tucson, where she met her husband, Curtis.

Dorinda was an angel while here with us. She was, from the beginning, the proverbial American farm girl: warm, sunny, earthy and good. She was forgiving, generous, kind and loving. She was also a fierce advocate of children, animals and anyone in need. She started the Headstart program in Payson, Ariz., and was one of two people who advocated for and successfully created the Payson Mental Health organization. Dori worked as a nurse's aide at the Payson hospital, taught in the schools there and worked for 30 years as a real estate agent in Mesa and Prescott; her love of people endeared her to her clients and colleagues. Her interests were many: She loved reading, gardening, horses, dogs and cats, and was a talented artist. Above all, she loved her three children and her grandchildren and was a wonderful, giving mother and grandmother.

Dori is survived by her husband of 53 years, Curtis D. Vick, and by their three children, Steven Vick, Jonathan Vick and Pamela Martin, as well as by her six grandchildren: Jeremy and Madison Vick, Brandon and Falina Vick, and Savannah and Kellan Martin.

Godspeed, darling woman. Our love for you sustains us in our grief. Until we meet again, dear wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. May God hold you in his arms, sweet, sweet Dorinda.

A memorial service will be 11 a.m.

Friday, March 21, 2014, at the First Congregational Church at 216 E. Gurley St., Prescott, Ariz. There will also be a viewing on Wednesday, March 19, from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Ruffner Wakelin Funeral Home at 303 S. Cortez St. in Prescott. Please visit and sign Dori's guestbook at www.ruffnerwakelin.com.
