Marcia June Pickworth

June 24, 1917 ‒ March 19, 2007

Lexington, Ohio

LEXINGTON: Marcia June Pickworth, 89, of Hampton Drive, Lexington, died Monday afternoon March 19, 2007 in Lexington Court Care Center following a short illness.

She was born June 24, 1917 in Lexington, to Guy and Doris (McNaul) Mitchell, was graduated from Lexington High School in 1934, and attended Columbus Business School.

Marcia had worked with Borden Dairy as an office clerk and comptometer operator prior to her retirement in 1966.

On July 7, 1962 she married Charles E. Pickworth, and they moved to, and made their home in Worthington, where they attended Worthington Grace Brethren Church. They moved back to the Mansfield area in 1999.

Quick to flash an ornery smile, Marcia expressed her creativity through painting, and was a member of the Brush & Pallet Art Club of Mansfield. Often, her artistry was a bit earthier, when she “painted” with the mediums of flowers and vegetables in her gardens.

When the work was done, she and Charles would set out to fish a spell in any puddle they could find, or fiddle with their Schnauzer Duchess.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Mary Ann and Leonard Free of Lucas; sons and daughters-in-law James and Carolyn Hardin of Lucas, Edward and Carol Hardin of Lucas and William and April Hardin of Mansfield; stepdaughter Kay Ann Lawson of Powell; stepson and his wife James and Carol Pickworth of Sunbury; 18 grandchildren; 24 great grandchildren; a brother-in-law Wayne Pickworth of Mansfield, and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.

Her husband Charles preceded her in death on May 12, 2006. A stepson Larry Pickworth is also deceased.

A graveside funeral service will be held Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 11 am in Lexington Cemetery. Pastor Brian Smith will officiate. The Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home is serving the family.

Memorial contributions to MedCentral Hospice or the Troy Township Firefighters Association may be made through the funeral home.
