Sybil Hicks’ death was announced by her children in the most amusing way.

“Mom was never boring,” Hicks’ daughter, Barb Drummond, told Yahoo Lifestyle, explaining the obituary. “Mom lived large. She would do anything for anyone. It was rare for Mom not to have a smile on her face. Mom was always ready for a laugh. “
The witty obit also said Hicks left behind “my loving husband, Ron Hicks, whom I often affectionately referred to as a ‘Horse’s Ass,’” stated which of her children “whom I tolerated over the years” was her favorite, and lamented not being around to see “my sweetest grandchildren” grow up “to be the incredible people they are meant to be.”
