Mary Hicks passed away on February 6, 2024. She was born on October 31, 1941, and lived a life full of love and kindness. Mary was known for her funny and sweet personality, always bringing laughter and joy wherever she went. Her warm and caring nature made her the center of attention among her family and friends.

Mary's proudest accomplishments in life were her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. They were the light of her life, and she cherished every moment spent with them. Mary's love for her family knew no bounds, and she dedicated herself to their well-being and happiness.
