The deceased was a noble and strong minded woman and was generally well liked. Her age was 76 years last August. The remains were taken to Nephi yesterday for interment by Geo. Hickman, her eldest son, and Mr. and Mrs. Allen. The sympathies of every one are extended to the sorrow-stricken family.

From the following obituary, one may be led to believe that Bernetta at some point had joined the Reorganized LDS Church:
HICKMAN.---Sister Bernetta Hickman died December 28th, 1886, in Park City, Utah, at the advanced age of 76 years and 4 months. She was sick but a few days, when she passed peacefully away. Those who remember reading the experience of a "Mother in Israel," in the Herald, may have a fair idea of her devotion to Christ and the right. She was loved by all who knew her; she was tried even as by fire, and her rest surely will be glorious. About three weeks before her death, Sister Allen, her daughter, dreamed that her [Bernetta's?] mother came and said, "I have come for you;" her answer was "All right, I will go."
