Virginia Hickman

Virginia Hickman was 98 years old when she died on November 19, 2021. Born in rural Bradley County Arkansas, she was one of nine children. After graduating from Warren High School, Warren, Arkansas, she moved to Little Rock to work for Southwestern Bell Telephone. As World War II loomed, she moved back to Warren to care for her mother, Ora Hargis Lyon. Married for over fifty years, she survived losing her son, Eddie, and her husband, Edwin. She was a cancer survivor herself. She was a loving mother to three children. During her life, she moved 14 times, lived in four states, and lived independently in her own home in Lewisville, Texas for the last 17 years of her life. Her handwork was beautiful: quilts, potholders, afghans and baby blankets. Virginia is survived by her two daughters and their husbands: Tom and Madeline Haynie of Flower Mound, TX and Bill and Teresa Laster of Craig, Colorado.
