Patricia Ann Dishman


Patricia Ann Dishman, of Warrenton, passed away peacefully Friday, April 23, 2021 in her home, surrounded by family.

Ann, as many knew her, was born May 7, 1943 in Sturgeon at the home of her grandparents, Owen and Ruth (McCallister) Bryson. Ann was the only child of Joseph Riggs “J.R.” Bryson and Elizabeth “Beth” Lorean (Richards) Bryson.

Ann was united in marriage to James Edward Dishman on Aug. 8, 1965 at the First Christian Church in Mexico. Both graduated from Mexico High School in 1961 and were proud Bulldogs. Ann went on to graduate from Mexico Practical Nursing in 1963. She had a long career as a licensed practical nurse and received a certificate of recognition from the State of Missouri for 50 years of service as an LPN in 2013. During her long career, she enjoyed working in doctor office settings, as a newborn nurse and as a geriatric nurse. Ann retired in 2016, after serving as charge nurse for nine years at St. Andrew’s of New Florence nursing home in New Florence.

Ann is survived by her spouse of over 55 years, Jim Dishman of Warrenton; two sons, Edward Matthew (Doris) Dishman of Osage Beach and James Joseph (Stacey) Dishman of Jefferson City; two grandsons, Kyle Dean McComb of Iberia and Mason Alexander Dishman of Jefferson City; three step grandsons, Jordan Hall of Crocker, Garrett Butel, of Jefferson City, and Blake Butel of Jefferson City; great-granddaughter, Alexis McComb; and great-grandson Landon McComb of Iberia.

Much enjoyment came from Ann and Jim’s summer place at the Lake of the Ozarks, where family and friends would gather for large parties. Ann enjoyed fishing, camping, hunting, making pies from her many fruit bearing bushes and boating with her family and friends. She loved to travel, and often at great lengths, to see her children and grandchildren participate in activities.

No services for Ann Dishman will be held at this time. A celebration of Ann's life will be held later this summer, at their lake home.

Memorial donations may be made to Union Chapel Cemetery, where she will be interred near Mexico or to St. Andrew’s of New Florence c/o Martin Funeral Home, 501 East Main St., Warrenton, MO 63383.
