Nona Lynn (Rickard) Pearcy, 73, of Miami, Indiana, passed away on Monday, May 25, 2020 at St. Vincent Hospital in Kokomo, Indiana.
She was born in Peru on November 17, 1946 to Robert L. and Maxine (Glassburn) Rickard. On March 20, 1968, she married Jackie J. Pearcy, who survives.
She graduated from Maconaquah High School in 1964, after attending Clay Township High School in Miami County for three years.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by one son, Ralph L. Pearcy of Miami, Indiana. She was preceded in death by her parents, as well as one son, Fielding L. Pearcy in 1980.
She attended Indiana Business College in Kokomo, Indiana, before her first son was born. In the mid 1980’s, she started working at the Miami Post Office for several years. In the mid 1990’s, she became postmaster at the Onward, Indiana post office, retiring in 2009.
Nona enjoyed reading, cooking, and tagging along with her husband and son to various antique tractor and steam engine shows. She never met a stranger, and her bubbly personality was infectious to everyone who came into contact with her. Her famous macaroni and cheese that she took to every get-together and carry-in will forever be missed.
She attended the Miami United Methodist Church, where she was very active. She was a member of the Deer Creek Do-Ettes club, Miami County, and the Mid-America Threshing and Antique Club of Tipton, Indiana.
