SOUTH BEND - Annette G. Hicks of South Bend, Indiana, passed away on October 22, 2013. Annette was born to William and Mary Hicks on July 11, 1959. She was a true "people person" with an undeniable sense of humor, and was well known for making others laugh. Her everlasting "young spirit" boasted an unwavering enthusiasm for life, even through chronic illness. Her body and soul are finally at peace now and no longer in pain. Annette was preceded in death by parents, William and Mary Hicks; sisters, Beverly and Brenda Hicks; and special friends, Misty Husband and Ray K. Ms. Hicks leaves behind many loving family members and friends. Her children, Tonya Daniels, Beverly (Flywell) Kaunda, and Johnny Ryan Daniels; grandchildren, Martin, Marlea and Marquis Besserra, Kaze Kaunda and Dennis and Gracie Daniels; siblings, Sharon Hicks-Plump, Diane Hicks, William and Michael Hicks of Kentucky, Angela Hicks-Cannady of California; and friends, Patty Perry and Angie Bennett. Annette had a close and unique relationship with her grandchildren, who despite her past transgressions loved her unconditionally and without judgments. They will miss her most of all. *Special thanks from daughter Beverly to her husband, Flywell, Anthony Hicks (Annette's nephew), Eugenia Jenkins and Donald Alford Sr., whose moral and financial support has made this service possible. Family gratitude - The family of Annette Hicks give personal thanks to the many pharmacists, doctors, nurses and techs who cared for Annette "patiently" during a multitude of hospital admissions and dialysis treatments over the course of many years.
