My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

Neva was such a special person in every way. She was in my Speech class and she worked so hard so she would do well in the public eye. Neva Jane was friendly, kind, beautiful, thoughtful, fun, caring, giving, gentle, talented, to mention a few word that describe her for me. She was a very special person in all of our lives.  I am thankful she crossed my path.

With my sympathy and love to Neva Jane's family; as one of many Miss America volunteers for decades, we all have been blessed to be surrounded by the lovely ladies who have been honored to wear the Miss America crown. I always enjoyed being kept abreast of Neva Jane through friends from Athens, GA, and through the Miss America Organization. Neva Jane leaves us with a wonderful legacy and a challenge to keep the standards high for our program and to provide the young ladies who participate a wonderful experience that will sustain them with happy memories and lifelong friendships. I am honored to be a part of such an organization and dedicate my service in memory of our Miss America's who have passed away. Blessings to the family and I know you will be comforted by friends and family. With special thoughts and prayers,

Neva was a beautiful young girl. The Wesleyan Glee Club toured the SE in the spring of 1953 and she joined us in some musical preformances. She was always friendly and it was a pleasure to be with her. Her accomplishments were many, varied and community-oriented and I send my deepest sympathy to her loving family.

I will always remember Mrs. Fickling as being a very smart, gracious woman. May God bless all of the Fickling family at this time.

Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Fickling, my mother and father often spoke with great pride of the time when my father, Frank Russo, as a young Marine, had the honor of escorting her at one of the Miss America events. Having lost both my mother and father this year, I know the pain of losing a loved one and will keep the Fickling family in my thoughts and prayers especially through the holiday season.

So sorry about your loss. I was a senior in high school when Neva came back to Lakeland, and being a photog student for the Lakeland H.S. I was lucky to have taken several close-ups of her. I have looked for them but haven't found them. If I find them I will post them.

Although I never knew her personally, she has inspired me for many years. I met her in 1989 while I reigned as "Miss Macon". Her encouraging words and beauty left me star struck, as I was looking at and speaking to a real "Miss America". I will never forget the impression she left on my young heart....one that will continue for the rest of my life as I have been striving to be a role model to my own daughters and other young women in the Miss America program. She will always be Georgia's Miss America.
