Kerry was born on July 17, 1951 in Austin, Texas, to Dorothy Jo and William Putnam Sexton.

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.

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.
