Katherine Darcy Deickler

January 30, 1955 — May 19, 2021

Katherine Darcy Deickler age 66 of Lincoln, MA passed away peacefully at her residence from an arduous struggle with Parkinson's disease on May 19, 2021. She was a beautiful, dynamic, intelligent, and giving woman; she is survived by her husband Stephen Dyer of Lincoln, son Michael Bower (wife Kokila) of Toronto, Canada, daughter Kimberly Bower of Austin, TX, parents Judith Deickler and Barry Deickler of Pawling, NY, sisters Beverly Deickler (husband Colin Harley) of Woodbury, CT and Leigh Deickler (husband Victor Cassarino) of Hebron, CT, and brother William Deickler of Redding, CT.

Born in Philadelphia, PA on January 30, 1955, she spent her early years in Bedford Hills, NY, graduating from Fox Lane High School. She attended college initially on Staten Island, transferred to Quinnipiac College in New Haven CT where she earned a B.S. in Occupational Therapy. Kath later attended Antioch New England College in Keene, NH where she earned a Masters in Human Services Administration.

Kath had a good life as an Occupational Therapist, real estate broker, and loving mother. Highly accomplished until the Parkinson's disease took over, Kath held responsible professional positions while also volunteering at the community, state and national levels. Kath was president of NHOTA (New Hampshire Occupational Therapy Association) and represented NH at AOTA (American Occupational Therapy Association) conferences. She also volunteered with the Keene Episcopal Church and with the Town of Lincoln to provide handicap access to public buildings.
Very giving and caring, Kath always insisted on helping anyone in their time of need.

A fabulous host Kath put on many gatherings for family, friends and neighbors, cooking, entertaining and playing piano…she lit up the room! These gatherings were something to behold.
