Jeanne Marie Hicks

EWEN, Mich. — Jeanne Marie Hicks, 93, passed away on March 15, 2020, at her home in Ewen.

Jeanne was born in Chicago to Eugene and Donna Potter on July 27, 1926. She married Frank Hicks on Oct. 26, 1946, at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Ewen, with the Rev. V.C. Savageau officiating.

She was an active member of the church, the Ewen American Legion Auxiliary, Cloverland Senior Center, the McMillan Township Library, and the community.

Jeanne is survived by her beloved sister, Connie Platske; son, James Hicks; daughters, Connie and Anita Hicks and Carol (Phil) Maki; grandchildren, Michelle and John (Jen) Livingston, Lisa and James Hicks, and Timothy and Jon (Beth) Hermes; great-grandchildren, Aaron and Annalise, Caroline and Veronica, and Kara and Rebecca; her very special nieces, nephews, and extended family members and her faithful companion, her little dog, Ashton.

Jeanne was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Frank; and daughter, Barbara.

Jeanne loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren, swimming with her sister, baking and cooking for family and friends, playing cards with her “card family” and bird watching with Ashton.

Her family and friends will forever hold the memories of her exuberance for life, her pleasure of life’s “simple things,” and her sincere gratitude and appreciation for everyone she encountered in her lifetime.

A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

Cane Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
