Anne Pleasants Dyer Krickel passed away peacefully on June 4, 2019 from natural causes. She was born at home in the middle of a snowstorm on February 4, 1923, in Ridgetop, Tennessee, near Nashville. She was the youngest daughter of Isabel Temple Shackford Dyer (later Waterfield) and Gustavus Walker Dyer, an author, speaker, economist, and professor at Vanderbilt University, where Dyer Hall was named in his honor and memory. She did her undergraduate work at Middle Tennessee State University, and received a master’s degree in English from George Peabody College for Teachers (now part of Vanderbilt University.) She worked for a number of years for the State-Record Company in the news library. She was predeceased by five siblings, and is survived by her son August Krickel, of Columbia, and many nieces and nephews around the country.


Per her request, there will be no formal service or memorial; it was her wish that her ashes be scattered at a place that was special to her, and a private observance will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Congaree National Park, or to the local theatre group of one’s choice. Correspondence may be sent to her son at P. O. Box 50812, Columbia, SC 29250.

My deepest sympathy and love to August and family.
Anne and I were neighbors years ago and stayed
in touch. I enjoyed hearing her expound on various
topics through the years. She always made me laugh!
My children remember going to her door and saying
“trick or treat”.She would say “trick”and then tell them a
riddle. She did finally give them candy!

My husband, Bill, and I had the privilege of working with Anne at The State newspaper and we were also fellow members of Trinity. In addition, I worked with son August in later years at USC. August, we loved your fine mother and we know how much she loved you. You were her pride and joy. Peace be with you. Warren "Pinky" and Bill Hughes
