Mary Frances (Billie) Vickers, 91, passed away on September 15, 2021 in Alamogordo, New Mexico. She was born on November 23, 1929 in Ennis, Texas to James and Beatrice Chancellor.
One of ten siblings, Billie grew up in Teague, TX. She was given the nickname Bill as an infant, but most called her Billie later on. She met her husband Norris when she went down the old country road to borrow a cup of sugar from his aunt who Norris just happened to be visiting at the time (wink, wink). Norris became a southern Baptist pastor and during his pastorate Billie enjoyed teaching Sunday school for third and fourth graders. She loved to play cards especially Mania and the game Oh Hell! She loved jigsaw puzzles as well as collecting John Wayne memorabilia. Looking forward to meeting with you and Daddy enjoying the extreme joy, peace and beauty that heaven has. I also intend to sit around the table of my adopted Christian brothers and sisters in a game of cards and refreshments. Who knows, maybe I will join in on a domino game of 42 or 84. See you soon! Just me, Dree Dree.
Survivors include her daughter Dree Ann Boulton of Alamogordo, NM. She was preceded in death by father, James G. Chancellor, mother, Beatrice McGaw Chancellor, husband, David Norris Vickers, brothers James and Skeeter, sisters Nita, Rita, and Pat and four heavenly children.
