Annette M. "Stella" Hicks
Suamico - Annette M. "Stella" Hicks, 53, of Suamico, Wisconsin passed away on Saturday, January 9, 2021, with her loving husband by her side. She was born on August 25, 1967 in Green Bay to Dan and Carol (Micolichek) Brice. Annette graduated from Preble High School. She had been employed at Enzymatic Therapy, Dental City and most recently, The Four Way until her health would not allow her. She made many friends and touched many lives while working.
On July 26, 2003, she married Steven Hicks in Abrams, Wisconsin during a full day of laughter, friends and helicopter rides - truly a day no one could forget. Together, Annette and Steve enjoyed raising their family and welcoming their grandchildren, which she could not get enough time with them. They also enjoyed bowling together, although Annette enjoyed the social aspect of it more than the actual bowling part, and she loved her horses and team penning friends in Dykesville.
Annette's huge smile and contagious laughter filled any room she walked into. She had the most loving way and could easily find the good in any situation. Her words of encouragement will truly be missed, along with confetti filled cards she would mail to her family and friends.
She is survived by her husband, Steve; children, Cody Keon and his fiancée, Heather Watson, Emily Keon and her fiancé, Cam Greetan, Trevor Hicks and his significant other, Alyssa Bardouche, and Holly Hicks; five grandchildren; Peyton, Zepplin, Bentley, Keonnah, Athena; her mother and step-father, Carol and Kenny Van Lanen; her step-mother, Linda Brice; her siblings, Bob (Carla) Brice, Ken Brice (Denise Hamari), Bill (Jodi) Brice, Tammy (John) De Coursin; Chad Van Lanen.
