Ms. Mary Lee Vickers

May 2, 1920 – February 25, 2013

Mary “Mamie” Lee Vickers was the seventh child born to the Rev. Ishmael and Wilkie Johnson on May 2, 1920 in Burnt Corn, AL.  Preceding her in death was her husband, parents, seven siblings, three sons: Robert (Bob), RayVoughn, and Reginald.

At the age of eight after the untimely death of her mother, she was raised by her great-grandmother, where she gained invaluable life skills such as cooking, sewing, and quilting, to name a few.

Later in life, she was joined in matrimony to Authurly Grace, and after his death, to Washington Vickers.  Several children were born to these unions.

Although she had many children of her own, she also worked as a Nanny, caring for the children of others as if they were her own as well.

In 1975, she began working at Jefferson Davis Junior College in maintenance and was a committed employee for seventeen years.  After retiring, she still worked tirelessly, maintaining her household and caring for family members while making time for some leisure activities such as reading and traveling, which she loved.  It was plain to see that her greatest joy in life came from taking care of, and spending time with her loved ones.

She leaves to cherish her memory five daughters:  Dorothy Grace Ellis of Shell Beach, CA, Zuintella (Bobby) Wilson of Inwood, NY, Alberta (James) Ewing of Brewton, AL, Vickey (Herb) Lusk of Philadelphia, PA, and Vera (Dempsey) Bone of Inwood, NY; three sons:  McArthur (Carol) Vickers of Philadelphia, PA, Jackie Vickers of Brewton, AL, Larry Vickers of Brewton, AL; one loving sister, Ann Coleman of Pittsburgh, PA; twenty-seven grandchildren; thirty-two great-grands; fifteen great-great grands; as well as a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.
