October 7, 2023, Age 83
BLISS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) —Huberta Lea Bowman Wickham, 83, our beloved mother, grandmother, and friend passed away peacefully in her home the morning of Saturday, October 7, 2023, surrounded by loved ones.
Huberta was born on May 20, 1940, in Owasso, Oklahoma to Hubert Pondcreek and Alma Ruth Bowman. On March 19, 1956, she married Bobby Wickham in Collinsville, Oklahoma and to this union three children were born - Dottie, Mary, and Robert.
She traveled frequently between Oklahoma and Idaho as the caretaker to their family wherever Bobby’s work took him. They settled in Idaho where they celebrated 54 happy years of marriage. Huberta crocheted everything from hats to leg warmers and gave it all away. She was generous with her time and caregiver to all. Her greatest joy in life was to spend time with family and spoil her grandkids, great grandkids, and great, great grandbabies rotten. She never had a bad one and she never had an ugly one.
Huberta is survived by her children - Dottie (Nathan) Hughes of Hagerman, Idaho, Mary (Fred) Mavencamp of Tuttle, Idaho, and Robert (JoRae) Wickham of Brownlee, Oregon; seven grandkids; twenty-one great grandkids, and five great great grandkids.
She was preceded in death by her parents, three sisters, husband, and son-in-law.
Granny Great will be greatly missed by her family and friends, but she will live on in our hearts forever.
