Doreen Ellen Hicks (nee Duck) peacefully and surrounded by love, Mom passed away on November 4, 2021 at the age of 89. Forever in the hearts of her children Bill (Laurie), Janet (Mike), John (Penny), Lorraine (Bob), countless grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren and brother Tommy. Mom was predeceased by her husband of fifty plus years Charles, siblings Barbara, Meadie, Donny and Vickie, daughter-in-law Penny and grandson Johnathan. By example, she taught all of us a fierce, loyal and unwavering love of family. Over decades at the house on Coles Avenue in Woodbridge, there were Sunday night dinners. With every person coming through the door, Mom would put another potato in the pot. There were dart tournaments, billiard tournaments, horseshoe tournaments and baseball tournaments. There were family joy rides in the “back forty” in a vehicle lovingly named “Jed”. There were camping trips, movie nights and trips to the CNE. There was playing “On the Buses” in the kitchen. There were kitchen hockey games, Halloween costume parties, ice skating in the garage, tobogganing down the cliff out back and Santa Clause Parades. There were Bridal Showers and Baby Showers, double dutch skipping, baking pies and knitting slippers. There were Christmas, New Year’s, Easter and Thanksgiving dinners. The Family Events were endless...and there was Mom/Nan in the center of it all. Thank you Mama for showing us the way...until we meet again. A Family Service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Simcoe Manor. Donate to Simcoe Village and Manor Redevelopment - Long Term Care The staff there goes above and beyond for their Residents. The love, affection and respect shown daily is so heartwarming. We cannot thank them enough.
