Deputy Clerk Ramona Dickinson is retiring after 35 years of service. On March 25 at the bi-monthly County Commission meeting, Clerk of Court, Tim Sanders, presented a resolution to the Board of Commissioners acknowledging Dickinson's service. “It has been made known to the Board of County Commissioners of Madison County Florida that Ramona Dickinson consistently demonstrated dedication and service to the people of Madison County Florida through her tireless effort on their behalf,” read Sanders. After the resolution was presented, it was unanimously accepted by the Board of County Commissioners. When asked her favorite part about her job over the years, Dickinson asserted she has enjoyed meeting new and interesting people and working in an environment that is always changing and challenging her to learn new things. She stressed that she will greatly miss the many co-workers, clients and business associates she has worked with over the years. On making a career successful and long-standing, Dickinson stressed: “I learned to be understanding and patient. You have to put yourself in someone else's shoes. My job involves dealing with many angry people at times; people who are going through divorces, custody battles or filing restraining orders.” A host of friends and co-workers attended the meeting and stood with Dickinson as she was honored for her work. It is evident she will be missed by many and leave incredibly large shoes to fill. After retiring, Dickinson plans to spend more time doing “whatever she wants.” She looks forward to spending time with her family-- her three grandsons in particular. She also plans to travel.
