McMahon has now lost his mother and his brother in a year
He died at his home in The Woodlands, Texas, on January 20, exactly one year after the death of McMahon’s brother, Rod.
Her obituary reads: “She was a 101-year-old and is survived by one son, four grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
“Vicki was born on July 11, 1920, in Florence, South Carolina, the only child of four children born to Orpheus William Hanner and Victoria Kennedy Hanner.
“The family moved when Vicki was a child to Sanford and then to East Sanford, NC, where she spent her childhood.
“Vicki was blessed with two sons, Rod and Vince, who married her childhood sweethearts. Sadly, Rod passed away a year before his mother.”
Askew sang in various church choirs and even played tennis until the age of 94.
She enjoyed a Civil Service career as a secretary and administrative assistant until her retirement from the Florida-based Chamber of Commerce.
Funeral services for her were to be held on January 22 with a private burial scheduled for a later date.
McMahon’s mother revealed her rough childhood in 2018 when she recalled surviving the Great Depression.
She said: “My mother had to go to work to support me and my three brothers. She started out selling Avon.
“During the Great Depression, I remember drawing my foot on cardboard and putting it in my shoe (the sole had holes in it and no one could buy new shoes).”
McMahon is currently preparing for one of the biggest events on the WWE calendar.
