Charlotte Ann Vickery, 89, of Tecumseh and formerly of Double Springs entered into rest Oct. 20 at Cambrian Assisted Living.

Ann was born July 13, 1933, in Hackleburg, the daughter of the late Plumer J. and Reecie H. (Cleveland) Ray.

Ann met Crockett Vickery in high school. Ann was elected cheerleader at Hackleburg High School, and Crockett was captain of the football team.
Ann and Crockett were married Aug. 11, 1950, for 69 years until his passing Feb. 16, 2020.

After Ann and Crockett were married, they moved to Michigan, where Ann worked at Bendix Aerospace for 15 years and did electronic work for the gravity meter for the moon, and Crockett worked at Ford Motor Co., for 33 years.

They retired in 1984 and traveled all across America. They enjoyed going to church, camping and fishing. They loved their family gatherings and enjoyed barbecue chicken and hamburgers. They moved back down to Double Springs in 1992.

Ann always lived her life as Jesus Christ taught us: to love the Lord God with all your heart, soul and mind, and to love your neighbor as you would yourself.
