In Loving Memory

Dick, Leta Joan

Leta J. Dick passed away peacefully on Saint Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2024 at her daughter Lisa’s home in South Saint Louis at the age of 89. She was born November 14, 1934 to Harley Pogue and Ina (Jackson) Pogue in Redford, Missouri and is survived by her daughter Lisa Dick, brother Sammy Pogue, along with several nieces and nephews and her beloved dog Baxter. Her deceased husband Lynn Dick passed on May 7, 2018, having been happily married to Leta since 1955. Leta’s only sister Lucille (Pogue) Hasty died on June 28, 2004.  Cherished friend Melvin Dennison died August 27, 2015. During the last few years of her life, Bill Dick and John Moore provided much needed support to daughter Lisa in caring for Leta. In her earlier years, Leta was a competitive volleyball player as were her husband and daughter, and the family sometimes played in leagues together. Leta continued to play volleyball into her 60s and loved wearing blue jeans and volleyball sweatshirts. While she grew up on a farm and could manage any number of farm-related chores, Leta later worked for Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Carter Carburetor, and Intertherm Heating and Cooling. When she left Intertherm, she mowed lawns and cleaned houses until she was 82. She learned to drive on a Model T but could operate just about any kind of machinery. She was also a wonderful cook. Some of her favorite memories included seeing Elvis Presley at the Fox theater and, years later in her 70s, an Elton John concert. She also liked hanging out with her friends at River City Casino and playing the slot machines on occasion. Throughout her life, she was a wonderful wife, mother, aunt, sister, and friend, and will be missed by many.
