May 20, 1947 — August 3, 2021


Josephine Polina – Dickinson was born on May 20, 1947, in Sinton, Texas to Vicenta R. Polina and Joe C. Polina and departed this life on Tuesday, August 3, 2021, at 2:03pm in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

She leaves behind one daughter: Pamela Sue Dickinson of Westville, Oklahoma; one son: Joey Lee Dickinson and wife Bethany of Westville, Oklahoma; two granddaughters: Aubrey Page Dickinson, and Kallie Nicole Dickinson; four grandsons: Braden Maddox Hicks – Dickinson, Aiden, Corben, and Blake Dickinson.

As well as many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her mother: Vicenta; father: Joe Polina, Sr.; three sisters: Victoria Polina, Anita P. Peden, and Lydia P. Soap.

Josie was a very loving and caring woman with a heart of gold. She was always warm and welcoming with a big smile. If you ever went to her house, she always made sure you were fed; she had a passion for cooking. Her heart was the happiest when she was able to give, blessing friends, family, and the community with her hot tamales.

She was an exceptional mother, not only to her two children, but took other under her wings too. Treating them as her very own. Many nieces and nephews looked up to her as a role model. She loved the Lord, loved to sing, and attend church. Visiting with friends brought her so much happiness. At times it could be hard to catch her home, she loved going shopping with her best friend: Shirley and Helen. Other times you could catch her on her porch visiting. She loved planting flowers, watching the Golden Girls, and spending her time with her grandchildren, they brought her so much joy. She always said, “Family first, family always comes first”.

Funeral services were held at 3 pm on Monday, August 9, 2021 at Roberts/Reed-Culver Chapel, Stilwell, OK with Bro. Wiley Lovejoy officiating.  Interment followed at Tyler Springs Cemetery, Stilwell, OK.
