PENSACOLA BEACH, FLA — Kerry Dicke passed away on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, surrounded by loved ones, having succumbed to complications following open heart surgery.

Service: A memorial service in Dayton, Ohio will be held at a later date. An announcement will be made regarding the specifics in the near future.

Kerry was born on July 17, 1951 in Austin, Texas, to Dorothy Jo and William Putnam Sexton. She was graduated from West Orange High School and attended Lamar University before transferring to Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. At Trinity she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Theater and met her husband of twenty-nine years, Dane Dicke.

Kerry was a lifelong lover of the visual and performing arts. She derived much pleasure entertaining her friends in her own inimitable fashion; as well as traveling the world and experiencing new cultures. Kerry was a prolific entrepreneur and enjoyed owning several small businesses. Her endeavors included the Object d'Art gallery, Pleasant Dreamers children's clothing and bedding manufacturer and Gaga's, a children's boutique.

Kerry was a treasured grandmother, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She will be truly missed by her family and friends, but most tenderly by those who knew her as "Gaga."

Survivors: She is survived by her mother, Dorothy Sexton; daughters, Anastasia Huelsman, Robin Dicke and Ashton Dicke; son, Christopher Dicke; sister, Jane Jones; grandchildren, Allegra and Liam Huelsman. She will also be dearly missed by her kitties, Señor Kooka, Julius and Petula.
