Nancy Hickey


Nancy Caroline Hickey (Hennig) passed away May 23, 2012, at St. Helena Hospital.

Born in San Francisco on Aug. 9, 1938, Nancy grew up in Willows, Calif., and graduated from Sacramento State University in 1960.  

A longtime resident of Clearlake, Calif., she was an elementary school teacher for 28 years and taught at Burns Valley and Pomo Elementary schools in the Konocti Unified School District.

Nancy embodied the art of teaching in all aspects of her life. From the students in her classroom and at the piano, to the lessons in strength and perseverance she taught her friends and family, she touched and enriched many lives.  

She was preceded in death by her parents, Dr. Lloyd R. Hennig and Vera Hennig (Johnson); and her sisterm Susan Dana (Hennig).

She is survived by her brother, Jim Hennig, and sister-in-law, Sue Hinshaw of Longview, Wash.; son, James Hickey, and daughter-in-law, Elena Hickey of Davis, Calif.; son, Robert Hickey, and daughter-in law, Jessica Hickey of Seattle, Wash.; son, Daniel Hickey, and daughter-in law, Shelly Hickey of Dallas, Texas; daughter, Elizabeth Dickson (Hickey), and son-in-law, Jeff Dickson of Rio Rancho, New Mexico; and eight grandchildren.

A celebration of her life will be held later in the summer when more people can attend.

In lieu of any flowers or gifts, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
