Shirley Halstead Dickinson

May 14, 1930 - October 27, 2019

Shirley Halstead Dickinson left this world on October 27, 2019. She enters into eternal rest beside her husband, Harry G. Dickinson, whom she deeply loved. Shirley is a native to Virginia and spent some of her years as an executive secretary for Colonial Food Stores and later as a volunteer for Sentara Hospital.

What our families say...

Altmeyer was incredible in their reliability and conscientious effort to detail. I personally worked from beginning to end with Joseph Limback. What an absolute blessing that was. From the first meeting we had a very easy communication path because Joseph took complete control to oversee our families welfare. Our family couldn’t have asked for better care and comfort of our love one.
