A Love Story…

Pickens, Montanta, obit“Your love, God, is my song, and I’ll sing it! I’m forever telling everyone how faithful you are. I’ll never quit telling the story of your love” – Psalm 89:1

Tuesday April 30th, Montana, clothed in victory, hopped a train bound for “Glory” and took her rightful place in the choir of Angels singing!

Brimming with quiet grace, timeless elegance and delicate beauty, she was a lady amongst women. Pouring out her love willingly, freely, and joyfully to whomever she encountered.

Fulfilling the will of her Heavenly Father, she unselfishly and without question or complaint taught us all exactly what we individually needed to hear when we needed to hear it.

Celebrating her life are her proud parents; John and Lisa Pickens. Grandmothers; Helen Pickens and Sue Smith. Siblings; Julie and Doyne Hardaway, Mindi and Kevin Zukowski, Sallie and Eric Miller, John and Marissa Pickens. Aunts and Uncles; Jeff and Bonnie Pickens, Mike and Dena McNeill. Multiple cousins, nieces, nephews and countless friends across the world.

Services to be held 10 a.m. Monday May 6th at Crossings Community Church. In lieu of flowers memorial may be sent to “Cure Search” (

Services are under the Direction of Matthews Funeral Home and Cremation Service.

    I am so sorry to hear about Montana. I may only know your family through my job (state farm ins-Benjie Wechsler’s office) but I have followed Montana’s struggles over that last couple years with your family and just wanted you to know I am thinking about you. She is in a place of glory with no pain and great joys and dancing with her grandfather. I will pray for your family and as you know, she will always look down upon you with the sweetest smile. Many blessings, Trish

    Dear Pickens Family & Friends,

    Our deepest sympathy to all of you during this time. We can’t imagine how much you will miss her radiance here on earth. Though her journey is gloriously complete, yours is so much harder. As the days pass by, please know there will many loving hearts wanting to reach out to you all. Please know our prayers are earnestly being lifted up for each of you! “May you have a peace that transcends all understanding.”

  3. John — I’m terribly sorry about the loss of what I assume is one of your grandchildren. I, too, lost a grandchild, an 18-month-old boy, about 15 years ago, and I need to tell you that, although all of the pain never leaves, the good memories will outlive the painful memories. Drop me a not when you have time.

    John & Lisa,
    Montana has gone Home, she is happy and pain free at last. She can sing now.
    I’m sure Our Lord finds her to be delightful. Montana was a true follower of the Lord.
    John & Lisa your memories and your other children will sustain you as will the Lord.
    Hmmm, Wonder if God likes OU football

    My love & prayers
