Theresa Ann Hicks

Theresa (Terry) Ann (Hoenstine) Hicks, 81, of Carlisle, PA, passed away on February 23, 2022, in the Thornwald Nursing Home. She was born May 31, 1940, in Mt. Union, PA, to the late William Ray and Sylvia (Kurtz) Hoenstine and was the widow of Leroy Hicks, who passed away on June 10, 2021.


Terry worked for McCoy Electronics as a secretary. She was a member of the St. Patrick Catholic Church. Terry enjoyed many things such as interacting in her card club where she played games with a group of wonderful ladies. She loved cooking and trying different foods, traveling with her husband throughout the world and enjoyed many cruises and casinos. Terry’s love of family was everything to her. She spent her last months in residence at Thornwald Nursing Home. The Thornwald staff became part of her family and she loved each and every one of her caregivers.


She is survived by her children, Beth Lepley (Scott) of Mechanicsburg, Ray Hicks (Terry) of Carlisle, and Paul Hicks (Delinda) of Texas; grandchildren, Patrick, and Christopher Fromm (Dianna), Laura Pisano (Bobby), Chris and Jordan Lepley (Maddie), Sean, and Kelly Hicks; April Schutz (Nathan), Marcus Clausen (Stacy) and Deric Hicks (Amy); and 13 great-grandchildren; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her siblings Joan Wenzel and Jean Goodling.

God's peace and grace at this difficult time. It was my honor to have known her much of my lifetime in one capacity or another. I was happy to help with her care at her doctor's office later in her life. She was a lovely person. Always a smile and a pleasant word. May her memory be a blessing. 🙏
