Rickey was born on April 3, 1957 to Bob and Marsha Lea Richardson in Mansfield, Louisiana and passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her daughters on Tuesday, August 29, 2023 in Gloster.

Rickey was a resident of Gloster, Louisiana. She graduated from Central High School in 1975 and Louisiana Tech in 1978. She was married to the love of her life, Gregg Howe, for 35 years and together owned and operated Kickapoo Corner for over 25 years. She was well known throughout the community for her sweet smile and kind, gentle nature. Her passions in life were her relationship with the Lord and the gift of her family. She had many titles but her favorite was “MawMaw.” She loved spending time with her grandchildren and never missed an opportunity to love and support them. She loved to cheer for her favorite LSU Tiger in the LSU Tiger Band. She also enjoyed travelling and spending time with her family.
