Obituary

Mrs. Roberta J. "Bert" (Dickason) Lamson, age 89, of Indianapolis, Indiana, formerly of Vevay, Indiana, entered this life on September 16, 1929, at the family home in Vevay, Indiana. She was the loving daughter of the late, Joseph L. and Mildred I. (Newkirk) Dickason. She was raised in Vevay, Indiana, where she was a 1947 graduate of Vevay High School. Roberta was united in marriage on July 2, 1953, at the Ruter Chapel United Methodist Church in Vevay, Indiana, to the late, Robert D. "Bob" Lamson. This happy union blessed them with two children, Michael and Lee Ann. Bob and Bert shared 64 years of marriage together until Bob’s passing on October 3, 2017. She was employed by the Selective Service and held several grade level clerical positions for Naval Avionics located in Indianapolis, Indiana, retiring after 30+ years of service. She was also an administrative assistant for the School Superintendent of the former Vevay High School in Vevay, Indiana. On December 19, 1947, Roberta became a member of the Bennington Chapter No. 407, Order of Eastern Star and after moving to Indianapolis, joined the Oakland Chapter No. 159, Order of Eastern Star. Bert continued to hold a dual membership in both chapters until her death. She was active in Eastern Star for over 72 years and currently held the position of secretary for the Oakland Chapter. In addition, she served as a past Worthy Matron for both chapters, a past District Deputy and former Grand Representative for the Indiana Grand Chapter. Bert resided in Indianapolis since 1955 and was a member of the Lawrence United Methodist Church where she routinely volunteered her time. She will be deeply missed by her loving family and abundance of friends. Bert passed away at 2:00 a.m., Saturday, May 11, 2019, at Community North Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana after a short illness.

Roberta will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Lee Ann Richardson of Monrovia, IN; her son, Michael Wayne Lamson of Vevay, IN; her grandchildren, Dana Jessee, Robert Lamson and his wife, Rachel, Laura McKinney and her husband, Jack and Holly Wodtke and her husband, Jayson; her great-grandchildren, Luke Jessee, Levi Jessee, Mikey McKinney, Gabe McKinney and Scarlett Lamson; her brother, Harold Dickason and his wife, Mary Ann of Indianapolis, IN; her brother-in-law, William Lee "Bill" Konkle of Vevay, IN, Nick Richardson of Avon, IN and her several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph L. Dickason, died March 8, 1991 and Mildred I. (Newkirk) Dickason, died July 17, 1982; her husband, Robert D. "Bob" Lamson, died October 3, 2017 and her sister, Mary Lou (Dickason) Konkle, died July 1, 2011.

My condolence to all family members. Roberta was my cousin, and we were always going to get together for lunch, each driving half way, but we waited too long. However, we did ride together to several reunions, so we were close. She had a good life and a good genealogy. I am sorry I can't be present, but had made other obligations months ago.
