She married Ardnial Dewey Bagwell Bagwell, son of Arzro Berry Bagwell and Luvina Williams, on 20 April 1921. Recy Ester Hicks died on 18 October 2009 in Alturas, Modoc County, California, at age 106 Modoc County's oldest resident, Recy Ester Hicks, age 106, died on Oct. 18, 2009, at Warnerview Convalescent Hospital in Alturas of natural causes.
Mrs. Hicks was born on Jan. 20, 1903, in Moreland, Ark., to Andrew Jackson Hudson and Tamzie Lucenda Simpson Hudson. She was the middle child of seven children, two boys and five girls. She had a deep love for her parents and many times said how thankful she was to be born into a Christian family.
Mrs. Hicks spent her childhood in Arkansas and Oklahoma, moving back and forth by covered wagon or train. She rode in a car for the first time at age 11. As a child, Recy loved school. She said that after children worked hard on the farm they were thrilled to spend time in school. She finished eight grades and later was able to take some college courses.
In the fall before her 18th birthday, she was offered a teaching job for first through fourth grades. She made $100 per month. She teased that, at that time, she didn't know much, but neither did the children. She met her husband, Dewey Bagwell, during this period of time and married him on April 20, 1921. Her first son, Clovis Othell, was born on March 22, 1922, and eight years later she had her second son, James Ardenel, who was born on April 4, 1930. Both preceded her in death. Her sons were her pride and joy.
She was a single mother for several years. She worked as a sales person at a department store and, when World War II started, she received one of four jobs offered to women at the Douglas Airplane Plant. She later owed a small grocery store.
She married Mr. Hicks on April 10, 1947, and moved to Klamath Falls, Ore. They moved to Canby, Calif., in 1949. In 1950, she started cooking at Modoc Medical Center. She was proud to tell people she cooked the first meal at the hospital. She worked there until 1961 and started selling real estate in 1964. She actively sold real estate until she was 100 years old. She believed she was the oldest real estate broker alive for several years.
She moved to Alturas in 1951 and felt fortunate to be able to live at home until Aug. 1, 2008, when she moved to Warnerview. Both of her sons and their families followed her move to Alturas. She was thankful that many of her family members lived close by.
Mrs. Hicks was well known for her love of her family, friends, church and the Lord. She was a charter member of Alturas Baptist Church and, for several years, the only charter member still alive. If her health permitted, she never missed a service until recent years.
For several years, she organized trips across the United States and into Canada on a tour bus for seniors, their families and friends. She enjoyed traveling to Hawaii and the Holy Land.
She loved holidays with her family and enjoyed her many birthday parties. At her 90th birthday party, she said I'll see everyone at my 95th and at the 95th she said I'll see everyone at the 100th. After that, she said she wasn't sure if she would see everyone at her 105th birthday party ? but she did.
She is survived by her daughter-in-law, Pat Bagwell; grandchildren, Tim, Terry and Glen Bagwell, Cindy Nielsen and Linda Harris; 13 great-grandchildren; and 20 great-great grandchildren and their families.
Two daughters-in-law preceded her in death, Nell and Ruth Bagwell, and two grandchildren, Scott and Robert Bagwell.
Her family and church invites everyone to share in honoring her life at a service at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, 2009, at Alturas Baptist Church with a short service at Alturas Cemetery. A potluck luncheon will follow at the church.
She was buried at Alturas Cemetery, Alturas, Modoc County, California.
