Obituary for Alycia K. Thurman
Alycia K. Thurman, 52, of Peoria went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, July 30, 2022, at OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home in Peoria.

She was born August 23, 1969, in Peoria to Eldon and Karen Jackson Thurman. Her father and grandparents preceded her in death. Alycia loved her dad and died on the 20th anniversary of his death.

She married Rickey O. Dawdy August 8, 2008; he survives. She is also survived by her mother, Karen Thurman and brother, Eric (Cam) Thurman. She was an aunt, great aunt, niece, and cousin to many.

Alycia worked for the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs in Springfield, IL.

She had a beautiful voice and loved to sing. Wind Beneath My Wings was one of the favorites. Alycia loved all people she met. She was sweet, ornery, and told it like it was. Her smile lit up the room. Her husband was the love of her life; the Lord, her family and friends meant everything to her.

Cremation has been accorded and a memorial service will be held on Thursday, August 11, 2022, at 11:30 am at Journey Church, 2022 Springfield Road, East Peoria, IL 61611. Her ashes will be buried with her dad at a later date.
