Inge Marie Brueckner Hickok passed away peacefully at 94 years of age on July 13, 2021 in Thomasville, NC. Inge is survived by her younger siblings Richard Suchy, Sieglinda Bachl, and Reinhold Suchy. She was preceded in passing by her parents, Richard and Kathe Suchy, and sister Kathe Gregan (2010).
Born on Nov. 28, 1926 to Kathe and Richard Suchy in Schwalbach, Germany, Inge was the eldest child, and led the way fearlessly. After marrying American Air Force soldier Gayheart Brueckner in 1948, the couple moved to the United States, eventually settling in Escalon, CA. After Gayheart passed away in 1978, Inge found another home in Oakdale, and a new love, with Army jet mechanic Lloyd Hickok. They were married in 1994, and lived a life of travel and adventure until Lloyd passed away in 2007. Inge remained an active member of the Oakdale community, particularly the Senior Center, for over 40 years.
A lover of seeing the world, dogs, gardening, and her family, Inge’s spirit and energy will truly be missed. She will be laid to rest with Gayheart at the Burwood Cemetery in Escalon, CA.
