We will miss her greatly. Her children and grandchildren were central loves of her life. Her grandchildren were her great joy and lifted her spirits. She loved antiquing, woodworking, painting signs, craft making, and bowling, enjoyed her large flower garden, and marveled at the beauty of nature. She was full of life. When we visited her during her 10 years at the Care Center, she would sometimes recite from a favorite poem, a Star Carol: "Dear baby Jesus, how tiny Thou art, I'll make a place for you in my heart, And when the stars in the heavens I see, Ever and always I think of Thee."Survivors include her children: John Dick Jr. of Dorchester, David (Sheri) Dick of Marshfield, Jenni (Chris) Risch of Spencer, Jeff Dick of Loyal and Mike Dick of Spencer; her grandchildren: Ashley Shepard of Onalaska, Dawson, Jacob and Emily Dick of Marshfiekld, Cheyenne Dietsche of Spencer, Cameron Risch of Spencer, Preston DuPee of Pittsville and Chelsea Dick of Owen; four siblings: Marie (Edward) Plotka of Marshfield, Joseph (Polo) Fischer of Evanston, IL, Victor (Susie) Fischer of Marietta, GA and Edward (Cindy) Fischer of Waunakee along with many other relatives and friends.Margaret was preceded in death by her parents.Arrangements are under the care of Life Tributes Funeral Home-Spencer.
