Mae Doris Rickman
(December 9, 1924 - April 7, 2016)
Mae Doris Rickman December 9, 1924 - April 6, 2016
Mae Doris (Combs) Rickman was born to Dr. Spencer P. Combs and Lucretia (Cornet) Combs December 9, 1924 in Cornettsville, Kentucky. She passed from this life April 6, 2016 in Alamogordo New Mexico at the age of 91.
Doris met Heza F. (Rick) Rickman at the South Main Church at Roswell during the summer of 1954. They were married July 2, 1955. They moved to Alamogordo in December of 1955.
Doris was a stay-at-home "mom" who dearly loved her family, and provided for them.
She was an active member of the Church of Christ. She taught children's classes, and spent over forty years organizing and serving meals to families that had lost loved ones. She especially liked to entertain, and spent a lot of time working with the elderly, especially the widow ladies.
Doris loved to travel, but she liked to do so in the motor home, where she had her own bed and could brew a cup of coffee while on the road.
She was privileged to travel in every state of the US, except Hawaii; all the provinces of Canada, except the Northwest Territory and Newfoundland; and the Bahama Islands.
Doris is survived by her husband, Rick, of 59 years, son Dr. Allan Rickman and his wife Sandra, of Alamogordo, two granddaughters: Stephanie Rickman of Amsterdam, Netherlands, and Elle Rickman of Lubbock Texas.
Funeral services will be conducted by Jerry Shelton and Al Maxey at the Church of Christ, 1300 Cuba Avenue, Alamogordo, on Monday, April 11, 2016 at 10:00 AM.
Pallbearers are: JD Cameron, Orran Fairly, Harry Lester, Johnny Shelton, Sam Williamson, and Dave Woods. Honorary pallbearer is Buddy Clark.
The Rickman family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the funeral services. To sign the online register book, please visit
