Billie was born October 27, 1928 in Graham to the late Jack and Addlane (Gibbs) Pickard. She married Bill Spivey, August 4, 1951 in Graham. Bill preceded her in death on February 17, 2014. Billie was a member of East Side Church of Christ where she loved being surrounded by her extended family. Billie enjoyed playing bridge and volunteering in the Graham Hospital Auxiliary. Many people assumed that Billie was just a housewife, but actually she was in charge of all the details, bookkeeping and worrying for Bill in his businesses. He would joke and tell her that living with him was a fringe benefit of the job. Bill and Billie had a good partnership.
Survivors include; daughter, Tammy Frezza and husband Keith of North Richland Hills; grandchildren, Sommer Frezza, Janae Poulton, and Cole Frezza; and five great grandchildren; cousins Barbara Inman, Jack Crabtree and wife Cathy, Sam Crabtree and Lila Hibbitts whom she loved dearly; nephew Brian Stephens and wife Joanie, their daughter Elizabeth Gray and grandchild Abbey Gray.
A special thanks to her caregivers Cam Montoya, Kristy Miller, Avalon Memory Care and Allstar Hospice.
