SARAH (SALLY) WINNIFRED HICKS December 28, 1914 - May 22, 2000 Peacefully, on May 22, Sally Hicks passed away at the age of 85. Her parents James and Louisa Williams and her husband Doug Hicks predeceased her. She is survived by her three children, David Hicks (Kathy), Jim Hicks (Sharon Gurney) and Betty-Anne Webb (Norm Wright). Sally (Nana) will be missed and fondly remembered by her grandchildren, Deanna (Hicks) Wright (Jeff and great-granddaughter Kaitlyn) Chris Hicks (Lori and great-grandchildren, Brendan and Hayley) Ryan Webb; Krista Webb; and Leah Hicks. Gordie and Anne Tidsbury will also miss Sally. She will be remembered by her surviving siblings, Joyce (Earl) McCallum, Betty (Cliff) Williamson, Earl (Jean) Williams, June Lowrey, and Tot Barker. Her many other relatives, friends and High Bluff neighbours will remember Sally fondly. Sally was born and raised in Roland, Man. She taught school at Burnside from 1937-39, at Old High Bluff from 1939-44, and at High Bluff school from 1944-48. After marrying the love of her life in 1942, Sally and Doug made their home in High Bluff and lived there until December, 1999. She loved watching and keeping score while her husband played baseball and curled. Sally was very active in the community, as a Girl Guide leader and supported the High Bluff Church as Sunday school teacher and was a member of the United Church Women. Mom also dedicated more than 50 years service to the Oddfellow and Rebekah Lodge. Sally always made their home open to visitors. Many children in High Bluff dropped by the house for an afternoon tea party with Mrs. Hicks. Sally entertained family and friends with the talent she had for playing the piano by ear. Her most cherished events were our family gatherings. She always looked forward to Sunday dinners at Betty-Annes home in Winnipeg. What we will remember most - is her warm heart, and the generosity of the love she shared with us all. Sally only ever had good things to say about people. She loved life and all the people in her world. In particular, Sally cherished all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and they will indeed miss their nana. She will always be an inspiration and a role model to her family and those that knew her. The family would like to extend their thanks to staff of St. Adolphe Nursing Home, and the staff at the Victoria Hospital, unit 4 for their care and kindness. The funeral service will be on Saturday, May 27 at 11:00 a.m. at Trinity United Church, 15 Tupper St. S. in Portage la Prairie. Following the interment at the McKenzie Cemetery, we would like friends and family to join us in a celebration of Sallys life at the High Bluff Community Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the High Bluff Church Memorial Fund at High Bluff, MB, R0H 0K0. Omega Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements. We are comforted by the knowledge that you and Dad are together again.
