Myra Ellen Dickinson (Parks) was born October 24, 1951 in Des Moines, Iowa to Leonard & Viola Parks. Myra passed away at west Missouri medical center on January 18th, 2022 at 3:02pm.

Myra was united in marriage to Robert Curtis Dickinson and to this union two daughters were born.

Myra was baptized on October 22, 2017. Her love for the Lord was very special to her. She adored her grandchildren! Anytime they would visit she would take them around the whole store and say this is “one” of my grand babies. She was always so proud of them! She loved being outside on her porch enjoying the beautiful weather, watching hallmark movies, and singing and dancing to her favorite music.

Myra worked many jobs, but Walmart was her life. She retired after 22 years but then after a short break she was back for 7 more years. As all of you know Myra’s work life at Walmart was very special to her. She adored everyone there and loved helping the customers. We are sure right now she is with Sam chatting about all the years she put in. She was blessed by all of you at Walmart.

Myra was preceded in death by her husband Robert Dickinson, her parents, grandparents, and her brother Dean Parks.

Myra is survived by her two daughters; Tammy and Erica, her sisters Jeanie and Jodie, two brothers; Leonard and Neal, and her grandchildren; Brea, Kylie, Jadyn, and Brina.
