Betty J Dickmann (nee Lochen) of West Bend took her last breath, in the comfort of her own home, accompanied by family. She entered into eternal life on July 24, 2020 at the age of 95.
Betty was born in 1925 in Athens, Wisconsin to Ollie Robert Lochen Sr. and Estelle Buck. Sadly, Estelle died of tuberculosis when Betty was three and her brother was one. The family moved to Newburg, Wisconsin where her father married again but tragically lost his second wife to tuberculosis as well. It was then that Betty went to be raised by her grandparents, aunts and uncle on the family farm until her father remarried again and the family moved to West Bend.
Betty graduated from West Bend High School in 1942 and married Walter F ("Bud") Dickmann on June 5, 1947 after he returned from service in the Marine Corps. They were blessed with two children and a happy home that she kept spotless. Betty was an extraordinary cook, seamstress, gardener, organist and pianist. She studied music at UWWC and took up the guitar. She was a charter member of St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church. Most of all, she was an extraordinary mother.
Those she leaves behind to cherish her memory include her brother Ollie ("Bud") Lochen Jr., sister-in-law Lucy Lochen, devoted daughter Diane (Ken) Troedel, daughter-in-law Jeanne (John) Dickmann, very special grandsons Aaron Troedel, Adam (Chanelle) Troedel, beloved great-grandson Liam John Troedel as well as nieces, other relatives, friends and many children young and grown who have and will always call her “Grandma Betty.”
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her son John G Dickmann, grand-daughter Sarah Lynn Dickmann, and nephew Mark Lochen.
A private service at Phillip Funeral Home and interment in Holy Angels Cemetery will be held at a later date.
I, Diane, would like to express my deep appreciation to our family members Adam, Chanelle, Aaron and Ken for the tremendous amount of loving support they gave, at any hour of the day or night so that together with Preceptor Hospice’s extraordinary staff of nurses, therapists, aids, chaplain and social workers, it was possible to keep mom in her own home, comfortable and never alone during her final days. She will be terribly missed but live forever in our hearts.

Diane, I am so sorry to hear about your Mother. Betty was a wonderful person and will be missed by all who knew her. Just last Thursday my Mom and I were driving near Athens and she was reminiscing about all of the good times they had over the years. Please take care and know that we are thinking about you and your family.

My deepest and most heartfelt condolences are with you and your family. My heart is hurting as I just heard that your mom is in heaven. What a grand welcome she must have had! I can see her smile now:)
I loved your mom so much and she holds such a special place in my heart. She was an incredible blessing to so many people - how fortunate I was to be one of them. God sure knew what He was doing when we became backyard neighbors back in the day.
My mom took this picture of Betty and me 5 years ago when we popped by for a visit one day. I love that we were wearing matching clothes:) She appreciated that too!
Please know I am praying for God to wrap His mighty arms around you and give you peace.
Betty was loved! You are too!
With sympathy,
Monica Mary Marshmallow
