Donna Lee Dicksson
Donna Lee (Riffle) Dicksson lives in Garland, Texas with her naturalized Swedish husband, Peter, two parrots and a dog. She was born in Idaho and grew up in western Montana.
One of the first things she confided to her new husband in 1990 was her “unusual center of gravity.” At 120 pounds, she easily lifted his 240 pounds straight up off of the floor. It was not until 2012 that she uncovered the name and occupation of Mattie Lee Price, undoubtedly the genetic source of her lifting capabilities.
Happy, lucky, grandma with a camera, Donna has two children, three granddaughters, and one brand new great granddaughter. She is both a volunteer and professional photographer and plans many more research projects and books.
