SHINGLEHOUSE, PA---Sharon D. Goss, 64, of Shinglehouse, passed away Friday, March 1, 2013 at the Olean General Hospital, Olean, NY, after a long illness.
     Born October 7, 1948 in Lewistown, she was a daughter of Lester T. and Ernestine P. Aumiller Goss.  On September 8, 1998 in Shinglehouse, she married Earl W. Dickerson, who survives.
     Sharon attended Lewistown Elementary School and was a graduate of Oswayo Valley High School, class of 1967.
     She was employed at K-Bar Knives in Olean, then as a supervisor at the former King Windows in Coudersport, later worked at Professional Answering Service in Olean, and lastly was employed as a secretary at Dresser-Rand in Olean until retiring due to ill health.
     In times of her own personal troubles, Sharon was always more concerned for others than herself.  In her younger years Sharon loved to play softball.  She loved to go to yard sales, especially knowing that she was helping someone else by her purchase. She loved her family, her friends, and her “little girls”, Lacy and Sneakers, her beloved dogs.  She loved collecting angels, enjoyed the mystery of “Big Foot” and mountain lions.  Sharon loved attending her family’s sporting events.  She enjoyed camping with her family and friends. She was a generous supporter of the American Cancer Society and local animal shelters.

     In addition to her parents, Sharon was predeceased by two brothers, Kennard E. “Shorty” Goss and Ted Goss.
