Louise Marie (Sweet) Dicklich was born April 17, 1937 in Hibbing, the daughter of William and Mildred (Vranish) Sweet. Louise grew up in Hibbing and was a graduate of Hibbing High School. After high school, Louise had worked in the accounting department of the State of Minnesota-DNR. On October 12, 1963, Louise was united in marriage with Milan “Mike” Dicklich at St. Vasilije “Basil” of Ostrog Serbian Orthodox Church in Chisholm. This union was blessed with children Nikki, Deb and Chad. The family made their home in Buhl. Louise was a homemaker when her children were young and later worked at the Buhl Public Library and as a cook for the Mesabi Nursing Home in Buhl. Louise was a life-long member of St. Vasilije “Basil” of Ostrog Serbian Orthodox Church in Chisholm, a member of the Circle of Serbian Sisters, church school teacher, Brownie and Girl Scout Leader. She enjoyed listening to country and Elvis music, curling, crocheting, knitting, macramé, and sewing, sewing her children up a sunsuit while they napped. After retirement, Louise loved to travel whether on the bus with her girlfriends to catch a show at Branson or to visit family. Louise would drive hours out of her way to avoid busy highways just to see her family. She loved to cook, host for the holidays and preserve family traditions. Louise finished out her years at New Perspective Senior Living in Waconia, making new friends and experiencing new adventures. Much love and endless thanks for their tender loving care to all at New Perspective, Bluestone Physicians & Associates and Moments Hospice. See you later sweet Mom, we love you...
