Vicki Tidwell

Vicki Ann Brothers Tidwell passed away Aug. 29, 2014. Vicki was a loving, and loved, daughter, wife and mother.

Vicki is survived by her heartbroken husband, Jim, and their children Will, Chandler (Taleb) and Patrick. She is also survived by her parents, J.D. and Pat Brothers; her brother Jay (Nikki) Brothers; brother, Chet Brothers; sister, Wendi Brothers, and nieces and nephews Sullivan, Addison, Emmalyn, Paxton, Artie and Levi. She also leaves behind her brother and sister in-Law, Bill and Jane Tidwell and her nieces Poppy Tidwell and Ivy (Hunt) Prothro. We would also like to recognize her closest friends Karla, Christina, Laura, Lisa, Cynthia and Anita.

Vicki grew up in Prattville, Ala., and graduated from Prattville High School. She attended Auburn University, Mississippi State University, and received her BS in Biology from Kentucky State University, with a teaching certificate. She received her MS in Biology Education from Georgetown College.  

Vicki spent her professional life as an educator in Frankfort teaching in both the Franklin County and Frankfort Independent schools. She loved teaching middle school science and was known for her ability to teach every child in a way that was effective for them. She was also known for caring about every child from every background and many called her “Momma Tidwell” or “Momma Vicki.”

Vicki also loved senior citizens and volunteered many hours at the Franklin County Senior Activity Center. She loved animals and volunteered long days at the spay and neuter clinics in the surrounding counties.

A gathering of family and friends will be Sept. 6, 2014 from 2:30-5:30 p.m. at Clark Legacy Center, Versailles Road.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Vicki’s name to the Franklin County Senior Activity Center, your local spay and neuter clinic or the Haitian Needy Children Foundation here in Frankfort.

  • My prayers for Vicki and the family.  I had met Vicki briefly in 2013, at Franklin County High School.  I knew was a respected educator and devoted to the students and community.  Remember this is not the end, you will be together again one day where there are no tears or pain.

  • Mrs. Tidwell is such a great person.  She had all 3 of my children as they went thru Second Street and FHS.  They all graduated and are in college now, but when home they would sometimes run in to Mrs. Tidwell and she would always have something nice, sweet, and positive to say to them.  I would occasionally run into her and she would always asked about the kids and family.  We will miss her and our prayers go out to the family.

  • She was by far my favorite teacher at BMS. Sadly, the year I had her class (1994) she was on leave most of the year due to an accident involving her son. She will be missed.
