Dolores F. Hickey, 92, of Franklin, NC and South Daytona, FL, passed away Wednesday, Feb 3, 2021.
Born in Lima, OH, she was the daughter of the late Alfred Jacobs and Gladys Seitz Jacobs. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Norman W. Hickey and brother, Douglas Keller.
Dolores had an incredible life. While being born in Ohio, she grew up on Miami Florida. As a young adult, she worked at her father’s hat and handbag store, was an airline stewardess and a professional singer in some of the premier Miami dinner clubs. She met Norman Hickey on a blind date and six months later they were married. Their love and marriage lasted over 61 years. They were committed to each other and the Lord led them all over the world. Everywhere she lived, she was active in her church and local missions: Feeding the homeless in San Diego California, Women’s Prison Ministry on South Daytona Florida, and leading underground Bible studies in Moscow Russia. The way she lived her life was an example to all who met her. She loved the Lord and everyone she met, never being shy in telling people about Jesus. Selfless in everything she did, she was always serving everyone’s needs before herself.
She is survived by son, Christopher Hickey and wife Anita of Mansfield, TX and grandson, Jonathan Daniel Hickey.
A private Funeral Service will be held graveside on Friday, February 12, 2021 at Ridgecrest Baptist Church. Rev. Guy Duvall will officiate. Burial will be at the church cemetery.
The family asks that friends and family take a moment to remember Dolores, share prayers and stories knowing that today she is with her Heavenly Father forever more.
