Lavada Kay Richardson, age 63, of Wickes, Arkansas passed away Saturday, April 18, 2015 in Texarkana.

She was born December 9, 1951 in Quitaque, Texas to the late English Woodrow Baker and the late Alma Hazel Cornelius Baker. She was married to Jimmy Richardson for many happy years and was a waitress and homemaker by profession.

Lavada was a very loving, caring, kind hearted person. She gave even when she didn't have to give, she helped everyone in her community that needed it.

She donated her paintings to most of the benefits that were given in her community and attended each one. She just wanted to help everyone she could, cause she felt that's what God wanted her to do. She helped her older sister and Mother to start the Western Arkansas Arts & Crafts Association, aka WAACA. Lavada always set up a stand at the Vandervoort 4th of July Picnic. She sold t-shirts, cotton candy and sometimes snow cones. Lavada didn't like little children to do without so she gave away more cotton candy than she sold. Any time a child came by her stand and the parents didn't have the money to buy the cotton candy she said'"that's ok you can have some anyways". She loved children, and she carried Smartees candies around in her pocket and her purse. She would give them to all the little kids she seen.
Lavada enjoyed doing Genelogy, she traced her family back quite a ways.
She loved reading, especially her Bible, painting, soap making, flowers and plants. She loved the outdoors period. Lavada loved the Lord and tried her best to live her life according to His Will. She always said she could never have gotten her boys raised without the Ten Commandments. She loved country music and dancing. But most of all she loved her boys, Jimmie and her family.

She was a loving and kind wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to all who knew her. She will be dearly missed by all.
