Regina Lear Obituary

Regina Lear 59 of Everett, PA; joined hands with her husband at the golden gates at UPMC Bedford Memorial.  Blessing the world with her boisterous laugh on January 11, 1965; a daughter of the late Victor and Mary Jane (Bussard) Dicken.

Regina is 1 of 4 children; her siblings are Wayne Dicken husband to Suzanne, Belinda Allison wife to Sidney, and Diana Fyfe wife to Lorne.

On June 14, 1987 she joined her hand in marriage to the love of her life Donald Richard Lear Sr.  Because, Regina & Donald fell in love they blessed the world with nine children. Victoria Lear of Everett, Donald Jr husband of Megan (Deneen) of Breezewood, Garrett husband of Olivia (Leber) of Dry Run, Zachary husband of Alicia of Chambersburg, Daniel husband of Casey (Ensminger) of Everett, Hunter fiancé of Kylee of West Lawn, Benjamin husband of Kaylee of Chaneysville, Audreawna of Everett,  and her late infant daughter Hannah Grace.  She is also survived by a boy she owned as her own son Cody McFarland of Breezewood.

Regina is preceded in death by her guiding star Donald Lear Sr. Her parents Victor and Mary Jane Dicken, her in-laws Alvin and Audrey Lear & her infant daughter Hannah Grace. We know the reunion between her and Don at those golden gates was one the angels sang for.

She was a graduate of Everett Area High School Class of 1983 and completed cosmetology courses at Cumberland Beauty School.

Regina, was an outstanding Grandmother to her grandchildren: Ryatt & Rocket Howsare, Easton and Savannah Lear, Isabella Priscilla Juliette and Henry Lear, Magdalena Lear and an unborn Grandson, Harper and Phoebe Lear. She took great pride in the title "Gwammal" "Grandma" and "Big Grandma." Regina loved making her grandchildren quilts, pillows and whatever other random craft she could come up with.

Regina was a phenomenal mother, sister, wife, grandmother and friend. She loved to craft and sew. She was the best giver of tough love and the greatest fan her children could have. She was so incredibly proud of being the other half of her husband. You could always find her on the phone with one of her sons, or bossing her daughters around. She enjoyed her "sister lunch" outings with her 2 sisters, or messaging her friend Joanna.

Without Regina our world is a lot darker, a lot quieter, and a lot less exciting. She will be deeply missed by her children, grandchildren, siblings, and all those that knew her.

Her children chose to have a private service with no viewing to the public. A celebration of life will be planned at a later date.
