Yolanda Marie Dickerson was born in Louisville, Kentucky on December 6, 1957 to the proud parents James S. Dickerson and Dorothy M. Moore. She was one of seven children. At an early age, Yolanda accepted Christ, and was baptized at Forest Tabernacle Baptist Church.
Yolanda was a graduate of Seneca High School. Marie, as she was fondly called, loved to cook delicious meals for her family to enjoy. She also enjoyed listening to music while she cooked, in her leisure time, and for winding down. When it came to shopping, Marie’s favorite purchase would be jewelry. She loved her jewelry to match her outfits.
Yolanda’s home was open to all who wanted a place to stay. She had a welcoming spirit about her that made you feel comfortable in her home. Her friends and family knew they could stop in, sit a while, and enjoy a good cup of coffee. She was always surrounded by family and friends, and was considered a second mother to many.
She worked many years as an independent bus driver for Jefferson County Public Schools. After leaving JCPS, she spent most of her later years as a caregiver for the elderly, adults, and children alike.
Yolanda was preceded in death by her parents, James and Dorothy Dickerson, and her infant daughter, Ebony.
