Phyllis Hicks

January 8, 1940 — March 22, 2015

one of the most caring Christian women, was called Home on Sunday, March 22, 2015, following a long, five month hospitalization.
Phyllis was a wonderful woman and a big supporter of her family, her church, Melbourne Heights Baptist Church, her husband, Pat, and the Kentucky Grocers Association. Both Pat and Phyllis were inducted into the KGA/KACS Hall of Fame in 2010.
Phyllis always had a great interest and love for helping children. While living in Mayfield, KY, she opened her home as a boarding home for children attending the Charles L. Shedd Research Academy. During those eight years, 51 children lived with Phyllis, Pat, and family.
Once she moved to Louisville, she continued her interest in helping children at the church day care and also helped many senior citizens.
She was preceded in death by her father, Carlton Eugene Edwards; mother, Charlene Shaw; her stepparents, Howard L. and Bebe Shaw; one sister, Helen Hunt; and one brother, Chris Hunt.
Phyllis is survived by her husband of 55 years, Pat Hicks. Also surviving are one daughter, Tanna Edelen (Jeff) of Lawrenceburg, KY; two sons, Jeff Hicks, of Mayfield, KY, and Patrick A. Hicks (Andrea), of Keller TX; four sisters, Anna Gean Davidson, of Marion, IL, Patricia Shaw, of Lexington, KY, Ann Powers (Pat), of Mayfield, KY, and Marilyn Rivers, of Tampa, FL; two brothers, Donald Shaw (Paula) of Murray, KY, and Henry Hunt of Zanesville, OH; 10 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
