Obituary for Phyllis J. Fickes

Phyllis Fickes, age 83 passed peacefully at home after a lengthy illness. Phyllis was born to Leroy J. Davie and Lavonne Turner Davie on March 28, 1935 in Deposit, New York. In 1950 her family moved to Cuba, while her father served in the Navy, and where she graduated from High School. In 1954 she met and married Carl J. Fickes. At that time Carl Fickes was in the Navy, which took them back to Cuba and the Philippines. After being stationed in Oakland, California for 3 years, Carl retired and moved to Anchorage, Alaska on Memorial Weekend 1964, right after the earthquake. Phyllis worked for the Civil Service, where she retired from Elmendorf AFB as a GS9 Supply Clerk.

She was preceded in death by her father Leroy J. Davie; mother Lavonne Turner Davie; and sisters Barbara Kraft and Jeannie Shore.

Phyllis is survived by her sister Elaine Chapman (Donald); her sons Jim Fickes (Cathy) and David Fickes (Dorka). Six grandchildren: Jimmie Rhodes (Kamie), Tracy Johnson (Cord), Davina Salsbury (Matthew), Tiffany Fickes, Mark Fickes, and Joshua Fickes.
