Shirley Ann Hickman

Shirley Ann Hickman, 62, of Bucyrus, died February 13, 2022 at home after years of battling breast cancer.



Shirley was born December 26, 1959 to Margaret (Morgan) Shope and the late Charles Shope in Bucyrus. She attended Wynford High School and married her high school sweetheart, the late James “Jim” Hickman, on May 28, 1976. He preceded her in death on September 20, 2008.



Shirley was a longtime member of the Pentecostal Tabernacle of Oceola. She worked at IB-Tech and Burcliff Industries for many years before retiring. She was a family-oriented woman who enjoyed every moment she got to spend with them. Shirley looked forward to holidays when the family would get together, and she never missed any of her grandchildren’s events. When she wasn’t with family, she was spending time with her best friends Peggy, Vicky, and Gail. She liked going to garage sales. Whenever family and friends traveled, they always brought a rock back for Shirley. She would label where the rock came from and treasured them greatly. Shirley listened to all kinds of music, but her favorite artists were Prince and Rod Stewart. She was known for her great sense of humor and her loving nature.



Shirley is survived by her children, Jeffrey (Diana) Hickman and Michelle Hickman; grandchildren, Paige Hickman, Zyan Hickman, Paiden Hickman, Alyssa Hensley, Brennen and Kayden Darnell; brothers, David, Jerry, and Steve Shope; sisters, Kim Shope, Robin Shope, and Tammy Shope; and mother, Margaret Shope. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Jim; her best friends of 30 years, Peggy Weiler, Vicky Miller, and Gail Payne; and her father, Charles Shope.



Shirley’s family will welcome friends Wednesday, February 16 from 5 PM – 8PM at Wise Funeral Service. A graveside service will take place Tuesday, February 22 at 2 PM in Brokensword Cemetery with Pastor Carl Angel officiating.
