My Deepest Condolences to the Family & Friends of Tickey. My daughter April was very very close to Tickey . Anytime I called her she was with Tickey . If I went by April’s apt & she wasn’t there I knew I would find her at Tickey’s . We never had a conversation without talking about Tickey . I was so Thankful that my daughter had such a loving , caring warm person in her life & living so close to her . I know Tickey Loved April & April Loves Tickey. If I couldn’t contact April for any reason Tickey would be the first person I called or went to her place looking because If anyone knew where she would be at It would be Tickey. April wanted to go visit Tickey so bad but due to covid it was hard to do so. I’ll never forget me & Aprils conversation early on Oct.13, We had talked about April going to visit Tickey & I had planned to take April to visit Tickey on Wednesday Oct. 14 . A couple hrs later April received the call that Tickey passed away . My heart was aching so bad Not just because my daughter’s heart was aching & she was so very sad But through April I felt a connection between Tickey & Myself.
No words can help ease the pain of a lost loved one . Cherish the Memories Both good & bad because nothing can take those away . May God help you All get through this difficult time

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Tickey!! She was a wonderful, kind, giving & fun-loving lady. We enjoyed many hours together laughing & talking with her & Ronnie over the years. And boy could she cook! My husband, Andy loves to cook, but could never come close to her cooking....especially her ribs! She showed him a lot of recipes & we loved all of the many cookouts together. We loved her a lot!!! She will be sooo missed by us & we will never ever forget her!!! Tickey, thanks for considering us family as we felt the same way about you. We will always love you!!
To Tickey's family - You are in our thoughts & prayers! We are so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful, giving, & hardworking lady. She will be missed by many.
With love, Kate & Andy Fetty
