Flossie was born on July 19, 1929, to Clarence and Cassie (Casey) Dickerson in Arkansas. She was a proud mother of seven children. Once her children were grown, she worked for the Benton Harbor JC Penney for 10 years and became the first employee of the year at that location. Flossie enjoyed talking to people, and she had a passion for thanking all first responders and servicemen for their service to our country. Flossie loved caring for and spending time with her family, crafting, tending her flower gardens and cooking delicious meals such as her famous biscuits and gravy.

Flossie is survived by her children, Karen Clarke of Las Vegas, Daryl Allred of Berrien Springs, Kila Allred of Middleville, Mich., and Kevin (Patricia) Allred of Berrien Springs; seven grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.

Flossie was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Cassie Dickerson; children, Brenda (Ken) Smith, Elton “Doug” Allred and Alton Allred Jr.; and siblings, Lovas Willis, Lucian Dickerson, Wynemia Saeger and Jean Compoe.
