Astrid Dickerson passed away September 30, 2020 at The Fountains of Melbourne at the age of 96. Astrid was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and great grandmother. She is survived by her sister, Janet Hauser, sons, Walter Chamberlin (Eleanor), Mark Chamberlin (Evelyn), daughter, Leslie Baum (Frank), 8 grandchildren, and 19 great grandchildren.
Astrid was born in Massachusetts, and spent her childhood in Newport, Rhode Island before moving to Long Island, NY after her marriage to her first husband, Walter E. Chamberlin (deceased).
Astrid and her second husband, Charles Dickerson (pre-deceased), were married 54 years, and enjoyed traveling, dancing, dining out, and their time spent with family and friends. They loved to entertain and were the proverbial host and hostess. Both were volunteers at Mather Hospital in Port Jefferson, NY. Astrid was a “pink lady” and head of the auxiliary for many years at Mather.
After retirement, Astrid and Charles moved to Florida and settled in the Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach area. Astrid enjoyed playing golf and a good game of bridge with the ladies.
We have been blessed to have had Astrid as our mother, sister, grandmother and great grandmother. She loved her family and will be missed dearly.
