She was married almost 50 years to Michael Dicker. They had an enviable marriage; they were always in accord, always together, always happy and laughing.
Stevie, as she was known to family, worked as director of health and human service for the Perenco Oil Company. As such, she was responsible for the health and welfare of the men and families of the people who manned and operated the oil rigs in the North Sea.

Stevie had a great sense of fun, and was compassionate and generous. She loved animals and was an avid book reader and gardener. She loved to travel and had visited many parts of the world, including the USA, which was an annual stop to visit her sister.
She was greatly loved and will be greatly missed.
