Elizabeth Ann Wickey

1948 - 2014

Elizabeth Ann Wickey passed away peacefully in her home Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at the age of 65. She was preceded in death by her husband, Philip "Phil" Wickey; and is survived by her son, Scott Rye (Brooke) of Long Beach; mother, Grace Buster of Seal Beach; and sisters, Bonnie Turpin (Howard) of Simi Valley, Marilyn Kilcrease (William) of Temecula, and Patricia Foster of Boise, ID. Born in Memphis, TN on July 8,1948, Elizabeth moved with her family to Torrance, CA and graduated from Torrance high school. Soon after attending school for cosmetology she joined the family hair salon Magic Comb in Torrance. Many in the South Bay will remember Elizabeth as the warm and affable hair stylist turned owner of Magic Comb beauty salon for over 40 years. Known affectionately as "Lizzie", she cherished the time spent entertaining family and friends at the river, hosting holiday family gatherings in her home, and traveling throughout the country with her sisters-her mission to set foot in all 50 states. Lizzie was a beloved wife, mother, sister and auntie who will be missed dearly and will always hold a special place in the hearts of those who knew her. Tribute services will be private. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Elizabeth Wickey's honor to Cedar's Sinai at https://giving.cedars-sinai.edu/make-a-gift. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
