Report card from Denver 1924-5 in possession of Clarence William Hickman

I wonder if Mom had morning sickness or other pregnancy problems with Edward. [If Edward was a full term baby, Mom got pregnant in late October or early November] Her report cards for the 7 weeks ending Oct 17 1923 show she missed 1 day. By the 13 weeks ending Dec 1923 she had 4 to 8 days of absences and for the semester ending Jan 18 1924 5 to 6 days. There are three report cards. [I suppose that the discrepancies, 6 or 8 days, are due to the classes meeting on different days. I can't explain the decrease in days missed by Jan 18, unless her morning sickness became less]. Report Cards are from Denver Public Schools, Opportunity School. She took Ancient History, Latin 1, and Algebra. Report cards in possession of HMH.

    Official cause of death is cardiac, but when John Wesley Hickman b 1930, was at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN. the examining physician doubted the cause of death. John says the physician felt that the cause of death was a diabetic coma. He based his belief on the age at death; probably the attending physician was trained before diabetic coma was studied in school and that he had probably never seen a diabetic coma. [If this is true, it is the only diabetes I have found in the family (17 Oct 1992)].

  5. Private Communication.

    Mom died on Sunday.
    Phone call from John on May 25, 2004
    John said that the day that Mom died, Dad told him that Mom didn't feel well and that she was still in bed. He fixed up a day bed for her and she laid down there. Dad called Doc McPhessel. Then they called an ambulance. It took about an hour for the ambulance to get there. It was hearse from Kinsley. Mom started flailing around about 7:00 am. They left fot the hospital about 8:00. She died at 10:47. Dad had told Lucille Hillwer to take John to her house. It was a big two story house. Lucille gave John a Kodak photo tinting kit to keep him busy.

    After Dad came home and John came home, he talked to Elsie the cow. Elsie was a little Jersey cow that someone loaned us for milk. He doesn't remember what day the funeral was.

    [The funeral was on Tuesday] John went to school on Wednesday. The various school events were written on a blackboard. It was announced that school would be dismissed for Mom's funeral. He said he erased the message.

    [I believe this was an extremely difficult time for John. He and Dad were alone. Dad's sister Mabel came to be with him, but there was no one for John. Clarence and I were at Southwestern. A moth later, I was drafted and eventually went to Europe. A year later, Clarence was drafted and went to Japan]

    I was driving the city bus in Winfield. Bill Watkins [we lived in the same house] got on the bus and told me that Mom was dead. I don't remember exactly what I said but I let him know that his joke was in bad taste. He told me that it wasn't a joke. I drove until I got to my house then Bill took over.

J w Carrier, Kinsley. a mixed quartet compose of Mrs Paul Peterson, Mis Helen curtis, H M butler and John Newlin sand: "We Hope in Thee, O God" and "O Love that will Not Let Me Go". Mrs Rex Brumfield accompanied at the piano.

    Mrs. M. E. Hickman
    Maud Hawley was born in Kingman County, Kansas, January 14, 1897 and dparted from this life at St. Rose hospital, Great Bend, Sunday morning March 5, 1944.
    On September 22, 1921, she was united in marriage to Rev. M E Hickman. this uniion five sons were born, one dying in infancy. Besides the husband, those of the immediate family to mourn her going are fours sons--Howard and Clarence, students at Southwestern College, Winfield, and Raymond and John at home. She is survived also by one sister and three brothers, and numerous other relatives.
    During her girlhood she united with the Methodis church, and remained a faithful member until she was called to become a member of the Church Triumphant.
    Her chief interests in life were her home, her family, and her church.
    The following lines, writtne by Raymond, express the sentiments of the family:
    Tribute To A Mother
    Never a braver woman,
    Never a bright smile,
    Never a better Mother
    Than ours as she walked the last mile
    Never a more stalwart heart,
    Never one to complain,
    Never a better companion,
    Never one to tell of her pain,
    Never a better wife,
    Never one more true
    Of course, you know her,--
    Yes Mother, it's you,
    Now your labors are over
    God's work has been done;
    And you, Mother Dear,
    A crown un heaven have won.

    We wish to express our sincerest appreciation for all the kindnesses and sympathetic ministrations to us during our great sorrow. This will make it a little easier for us to keep going during the days of terrible emptiness that are ahead of us. God bless you all.
