Oma D Mahan Pickens age 84, passed away Tuesday August 21, 2018 at Marshall Manor Nursing Home after a long-fought battle with Alzheimer’s. She is survived by her Sons: Kenneth Glenn Johnson (Suzanne), Randall Benny Johnson (Rainie) and James Oliver “Jimmy” Johnson, Daughters: Diane Carter (David) and Janet Thomas (Gary), Nine Grandchildren, Eighteen Great Grandchildren, and Seven Great Great Grandchildren. Oma D worked for many years as a cook at Reid’s Restaurant and then later as a seamstress at The Lee Company in Guntersville, where she retired to be with her late husband. She was a loving person who enjoyed life which included quilting and gardening. She would often give away what she had grown and canned to her family and friends, and her quilts have become prized possessions among family members as a way of keeping part of her with them. Oma D also enjoyed large gatherings where she cooked her signature dishes (banana pudding and dressing) for her family and friends. Over the years, she unofficially adopted multiple family friends and was called “Momma”, “Grandma” or “Nanna D” by many. She was preceded in death by her Husbands: R B Johnson and Bobby Joe Pickens, Parents: Rev. Birt Mahan and Alice Kelley Mahan, Brothers: Cecil Mahan and Carlis Mahan, Sisters: Lois Windsor, O V Sims, Dessa B Maynard and Nora Mahan. Her funeral was Friday, August 24, 2018 at Carr Funeral Home and burial was at Crestview Memorial Gardens. The service was officiated by Neal Fossett. Pallbearers were: David Carter, Gary Thomas, Thomas Boozer, John Bauer, Shane Thomas and Blake Johnson. .
