Ruth Mildred Duffina Hicks

Ruth was born June 15, 1927 in Mooers, N.Y. She worked at CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh, N.Y. for 25 years. While Ruth was active in many activities, she still found time to give much of herself in caring for the sick and elderly.

She was preceded in death by her son, Lindsey Roger in 1983.

Ruth leaves behind her daughter and son-in-law, Bonnie and Richard DeCosta, with whom she had made her home since leaving New York in 1994; son, Rickey Lee Joseph Hicks from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and son and daughter-in-law, Larry Bernard and Carol Hicks, of Webster, N.Y. Ruth also leaves behind four grandchildren, Sherri DeCosta Alley of Knoxville, Katie Hicks Ostrowski and Stephanie Hicks of Webster, N.Y. and Timothy Hicks of Virginia Beach, Va. She also leaves behind five great-grandchildren, Paige, Grace and Carter Ostrowski and Harrison Maxfield and Sofia Isabella Alley.

No services are planned and her remains will remain in the wonderful State of Tennessee, where Ruth found new friends, joy and contentment.

Donations can be made to Briarcliff Healthcare Center, 100 Elmhurst Drive, Oak Ridge TN 37830 and reference the Ruth Hicks Memorial.
