Obituary from the paper read as follows: Mrs. Victoria Vickers Is Claimed By Death - Leaves Many Relatives and Hundreds of Friends with Saddened Hearts at Her Passing -

Mrs. Victoria Johnson Vickers, 75 years old, died at the home of her son, Oley Vickers, near here, Saturday morning at eight o'clock. She had been ill for about four months.

Mrs. Vickers was the daughter of Jefferson and Elizabeth Roberts Johnson, pioneer Lincoln, county family of Bear Creek. She was the widow of the late John Vickers. She had lived in this county all her life, and was well known and loved by all who knew her. She was noted for a pleasant and lovable personality, ever ready to help those in distress, or the less fortunate. No night was too dark for her to answer the call of a sick friend or neighbor. She was a good neighbor and a loving wife and mother.

Mrs. Vickers had many friends in Hamlin, having lived there several years ago, and only recently came to the home of her step-son John L. Vickers, here after the death of his wife, to try to lighten the burden of this family. A good woman has gone from our midst; but by her devoted Christian life has gained a far better home. She was a member of the Baptist Church.

A great throng of sorrowing friends and relatives attended the last rites at the Pleasant Hill Baptist church Sunday afternoon, to pay their last respects to "Aunt Vick", as she was familiarly known. The services were conducted by Rev. Homer Curry. Burial was in the Vickers cemetery near the church, under the direction of the Johnson-Koontz Funeral home. Surviving are the son, Oley Vickers, and step-son, John Vickers of Hamlin; one sister, Mrs. Cora Gill of Salt Rock; three brothers, Samp M. Johnson of West Hamlin, Albert Johnson of Cross Roads, and Henry Johnson of Huntington. The family have the deepest sympathy of The Hamlin Democrat family.
