Velma Grace Hicks, 105, of Amarillo, Texas passed away into the loving arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ on Thursday, October 25, 2018.
Velma Grace, known as Nena to her friends and family, was born on June 26, 1913. Among Nena’s countless gifts was her incredible longevity. Our family has treasured living with 5 generations for almost 16 years. It must not go unnoted that Nena lived full of faith and love for Jesus Christ no matter her circumstances. She rested in contentment with her life, counted her blessings always, and was faithful to speak of the love of the Father throughout her incredibly long life. Graciously, Nena expressed thankfulness and appreciation of any kind act, no matter how small. Loyal to her family, positive in her words, and kind to every person she encountered, Nena’s legacy to her family and friends is to live a life overflowing with love for others. Nena would be honored if her memory would lead you to the knowledge that you are deeply loved and sought after by Jesus Christ.
She is survived by her daughter, Peggy Nail; her 2 grandchildren, Beata Crowell (Dennis) and Al Nail (Carol); her 4 great-grandchildren, Audra Lay (Caleb), Laura Selig (Stuart), Becca Nail, and Sarah Hope Nail; and her 8 great, great-grandchildren.
Our family would like to extend a very special thank you to the staff and caregivers of Mary’s Place. Your gentle care and endless love for our precious Nena is greatly appreciated. She loved you all dearly!
