Mansfield, Ohio

Margaret M. Hicks passed away Thursday, February 16, 2017 in Crystal Care Center of Ashland surrounded by her family. She was 89.

She was born August 25, 1927 to parent’s Charles & Consuella (D’Alessandro) Lillo in Willard, Ohio.

On February 21, 1947, she married Arthur R. Hicks and they shared 43 wonderful years of marriage until he passed away in 1990. They are together again.

Margaret was a wonderful homemaker; she enjoyed spending time taking care of her family and her home. She spent many hours in the kitchen baking bread, pies, and cookies. When she was not cooking she took pleasure in watching the cooking channel, and caring for her flower and vegetable gardens. God received an Angel who had a heart of gold and will be missed by all who loved her dearly.

She is survived by her children Larry R. Hicks, David L. Hicks, and Helen Damron; grandchildren Abbie Eith, Jessica (JJ Claitt) Mitchell, Chad (Liz) Hicks, Jennifer (Charles) McCray, Taightum Hicks, and Tyson Hicks; great grandchildren Molly Eith and Marcus Mitchell; and sister-in-law Lucille Walton.

In addition to her loving husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; son-in-law Ron Damron; her sister Mary Stewart most recently, along with many other siblings.

A graveside service will be held in Margaret’s memory on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 2:30 pm in Oakland Cemetery near Shelby. Pastor Tony Pingitore will officiate.

  • So sorry for your loss. I have a few fond memories of her that I will cherish and keep close to my heart. She was great in the kitchen and the talk we had about thyroid disease made all the difference, I really thank her for that. She will be missed.
