Lorna May HICKEY
May 4, 1925 – November 22, 2019
Lorna May Hickey passed away on November 22, 2019 at the age of 94 at Treasure Coast Hospice, Fort Pierce, FL. Lorna was born in Laurium, Michigan on May 4, 1925, the youngest daughter of the late Joseph and Laura Trevaskis. She spent her childhood in Laurium before moving to New York City with her family.
Lorna married Lawrence Hickey in July of 1952, and lived in several states prior to Larry’s retirement from the Navy. Lorna and Larry built the family home in Lumberton, NJ, where they lived for 53 years prior to moving to Port St. Lucie, Florida in 2010.
Once her children were older, Lorna worked as a legal secretary in Burlington County, New Jersey. She loved the law, and was an avid reader, gardener, and enjoyed playing cards with friends and family. She had particularly fond memories of the cold, snowy winters in northern Michigan.
Lorna was preceded in death by her brother, Joseph Trevaskis, and sister June Mason. She is survived by her husband, Lawrence; brother, John Trevaskis; daughter and son-in-law, Joanne and Stephen Fitzgerald, MD; daughter and son-in-law, Michele and Richard Saunders; six grandchildren, Laura Pierce, Richard Saunders, Douglas Saunders, Evan Fitzgerald, Jane Smith, and Craig Fitzgerald; and seven great-grandchildren, Peyton Esmet, Katherine Pierce, Paloma Saunders, Maisy Smith, Jasper Saunders, and Scarlett Saunders; and her devoted brother-in-law and wife, John and Frances Hickey.
The family suggests remembrances to the Alzheimer’s Association or Treasure Coast Hospice.
