My deepest sympathy to the family of Lynn Hicks. I knew Lynn and her parents in Spartanburg.

Ginny White, Los Alamos, NM

Lynn was among the first to welcome our family when we moved to Fernandina in 1982. She remained a friend for the 30 years I lived there, always with a kind word and a genuine smile. She added grace and goodness to our world. Our family - Morgan, Blake, and I send our love to all of you.

Tina Allen

Lynn McKown Hicks


After a much too long struggle with Alzheimer's Disease, heaven accepted another angel Monday when Lynn McKown Hicks was called home. Lynnieboo, as she was called by her family friends, was the epitome of a Southern lady. She was a gracious gentle person who never spoke ill of anyone, looked on all as a friend, and never distressed in adversity. She loved cooking, entertaining, fall leaves, snowmen, christmas lights, and spending time with family.
She started college at Limestone College and graduated from Marjorie Webster College in Washington DC. She worked briefly with primary children in special ed with the Montessori training she received there. Her family was the thing she cherished most. They leaned and depended on her in small and big ways, and she always went above and beyond. She also worked in support of her family at her husband’s veterinary practice, Amelia Island Veterinary Clinic.
Lynn was predeceased by her father, Robert F. McKown, mother, Mary Alice Pickens, sister, Mary Alice Chandler and her dear maternal grandparents R.O Pickens Sr. and Mary Melissa Pickens with whom she shared a special bond.
She is survived by her husband of 53 years James E. Hicks Jr., daughter, Melissa (Keith) Hurwitz, son, James Hicks III (Karen), son, Rob (Kim) and five grandchildren Clay, Lulu, Everett, Grady, and Redding, several nieces and nephews, close friends, Diane Cobb and Hazel Willis, and the members of bridge and garden clubs.
A visitation will be held Thursday evening December 2nd from 5 to 7 at Oxley Heard Funeral Home and a memorial service will be held Friday afternoon, December 3rd at 3pm at First Presbyterian Church, Fernandina Beach. Lynn will be interred at Greenlawn Cemetery in Spartanburg, SC next to her grandmother.
In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to Alzheimer's Association, Community Hospice, or the charity of your choice.
