Sally Morley Dickinson, a resident of Chelsea, Michigan, passed away surrounded by family on February 1, 2024 at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ypsilanti.

Born in Saginaw, Michigan on April 30, 1939, Sally was the oldest daughter of Simon and Wilda (Simonton) Fisher. Sally grew up in Bay City and graduated from Bay City Central High School. After graduation, she attended Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio before transferring to Wayne State University to complete her bachelor’s degree in business administration.

After college, Sally worked as an event planner for the McGregor Memorial Conference Center at Wayne State before deciding to stay at home to raise her sons, Scott and Tim. In later years, Sally worked in fund development for Saginaw General Hospital and Saginaw Valley State University. She also converted her love for cooking, sewing, and knitting into a couple of small businesses in Saginaw.

Sally was an avid quilter who created numerous wall hangings and quilts for her family and for charitable causes. She was also a tremendous cook and enjoyed preparing healthy meals and teaching others how to cook. More than anything, she loved her family and family gatherings, especially at Christmas. Her family will miss her dearly.

Sally was preceded in death by her first husband, Scott and Tim’s father, Leonard See, Jr.; her second husband, Edward (Ted) Morley, Jr.; and her parents, Simon and Wilda Fisher.

Sally is survived by her beloved husband, Fred Dickinson, of Chelsea; her sisters, Barbara Fisher of Bay City and Nancy Fisher of Madison, Wisconsin; her sons Scott (Deborah) See of Houghton and Timothy (Katherine) See of Ann Arbor; niece, Amy Miles of Bay City; and her grandchildren, Russell, Christine, Sam, Ellen, Cameron, Lauren and Cassidy.

The family will hold a private memorial at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Sally’s name to the Chelsea Senior Center or the Chelsea District Library.

Sally was a close friend for 30-some years and a most talented quilter/knitter /cook. She was always telling wonderful stories about her family and her adventures with Fred. She will be greatly missed. My condolences to Fred and the whole family. May she find peaceful rest.

We only met Sally a few times but she was very nice. Sorry we did not know her better. Did not know she was a college graduate and that we shared so much love for the arts. I know she will be missed greatly by the family.
