Aiyana Lea Hickman May 28, 1980 December 4, 2013 A resident of Cobb, CA, raised in Lake Co., CA. Aiyana was a Personal Assistant, tirelessly caring for and supporting the disabled. She provided in home care to those with disabilities as well as senior citizens; helping them in their everyday needs and providing them with comfort and friendship. Aiyana was one who always cared for others before herself. She'd give you the jacket off her back without question. For Aiyana life wasn't about material things; life was about her family, true friends and being surrounded by those who loved her and whom she loved. Preceded in death by the love of her life, Isaiah Matthew Neil, Aiyana was the only child born to Lora Heise and the youngest of three to Kirby Hickman. She is survived by her three beautiful children, Zachary, Shawna, and Jonathan; her mother, Lora (step-father, Franz Waltenspuhl); her father, Kirby; grandmother, June Heise; brother, Brandon Hickman (Hisae Hickman); sister, Linnea Hickman (nephews, Andrew, Joshua, and Samuel); and countless family and friends that love her dearly. A memorial service is being planned for the end of December, more information to follow. In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations to be sent to an account for Aiyana's children.
