Melisa "Lisa" Dickman (Deininger)
Melisa Renee “Lisa” Dickman, 53, of Kenosha, passed away suddenly on June 10, 2018, in a tragic plane crash in Green County, WI.
Born March 22, 1965, to Franklyn and Colleen Deininger in Kenosha, WI, Lisa was known for her highly empathetic spirit and her love for animals, gardening, and baking. She had a contagious laugh, a giant heart and was always the first person to offer a helping hand to those in need.
She attended Forest Park Elementary, McKinley Junior High, and graduated from Tremper High School in 1983. She went on to obtain a marketing degree from Gateway Technical College and retained a career in sales.
She was formerly married to Joel Dickman, of Kenosha, with whom she had two beloved children, Emmarose and Alex.
Lisa was always the life of the party, had an independent soul and was a firm believer in being fashionably late – for every occasion.
Lisa tragically perished in a plane crash alongside her children, Emmarose and Alex, and her mother, Colleen. Her entire family is devastated by the loss and will miss her beautiful smile, generous heart and exuberant personality for the rest of our days.
She is survived by her father, Frank; sisters Cheryl Deininger and Calla (Joseph) Ricciardi; brothers Michael (Amanda Guerrero) and Curt (Becky) Deininger. Lisa is further survived by her aunts Sharon Clark, Rita (Bill) Reid, Vicki (Howard) Moore, and many nieces and nephews.
Visitation will be held on Friday, June 15th, from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at Proko Funeral Home. A Funeral Mass honoring Colleen, Lisa, Alex and Emma will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 16th, at St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church, 2020 91st Street. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Wisconsin Humane Society in Lisa’s name would be appreciated by the family.
