Durham: Josephine Morado Dickerson Paschall, 88, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 surrounded by family at her home of 63 years. Born to Phoenix and Lannie Dickerson; she is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Don F. Paschall, Jr; son, Daniel Carmon Paschall; brothers, Russell Dickerson, Maurice Dickerson; sisters, Felsie Dickerson, Maggie Dickerson, Christine Dickerson, Doris Burbage. Ms. Paschall is survived by step-daughters, Ann Atkins (Eddie), Nell and Donna Kay; son, Donald F. Paschall, III (Debbie); daughter, Rebecca P. Delong (John); grandchildren, Kimberely Dawn, Donald F.

Carpenter (Ken); step-great-grandchildren, Easton Carpenter, Ella Carpenter; and several nieces and nephews.

She was a member of Mt. Hermon Baptist Church in Orange County for more than 60 years. She loved her Lord and her family. She enjoyed spending time with her cousins and other family members, especially after her husband’s passing. Beach trips, cook outs, or just going out to eat was a joy to her. She was a simple lady that saw beauty everywhere she looked. She also helped take care of people for many years until she was diagnosed with dementia. In her early years she worked as a telephone operator with General Telephone, where she met a married her husband. She dedicated her life to her family and helped her husband build his glass company; which was his dream. Today the company is still being run with great pride by her son Donald.

She taught us many things, hard work, being grateful but most important she taught and showed us about faith and loving the Lord. She will be truly missed.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29th at Clements Funeral Home in Durham. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 30th at Mt. Hermon Baptist Church with Dr. Jerry Harper and Rev. Rich Goodier officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
