Patti A. (Troy) Hicks, 65, of Blairsville, died on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at her home.
She was born on September 6, 1956 in Omaha, Neb., Daughter of Muriel A. (Allm) Troy and Billie L. Troy.
She was predeceased by her father and brothers, Audrey C. Troy, Billie L. Troy Jr. and Terrie L. Troy.
She was a long-time member of St. Alban’s Anglican Church in Murrysville, where she worked as an administrative assistant and volunteered with the children’s ministry and holiday Bible school.
Patti worked as a financial assistant for Shepherd’s Heart Anglican Fellowship in downtown Pittsburgh and traveled to Zaria, Nigeria with her husband on several mission trips working with youth.
She was active in Girl Scouting and Boy Scouting with her children and served at Camp Conestoga for several summers.
Patti was a past president of the Rotary Club of Delmont Salem. She was a leader in Celebrate Recovery in Homer City, helping those with injuries, habits, and blockages.
She has been secretary of the Miracle League of Western Pennsylvania since its inception in 2009 and could be seen in the field almost every day until her illness prevented it.
One of her many joys in life has been welcoming children and families for over 25 years as Mrs Claus (with her husband as Santa Claus) at Santa’s Workshop in the countryside of Overly.
In addition to her mother, Patti will be sadly missed by her husband of over 45 years, the Reverend Harold D. Hicks Jr .; her children, Tiffanie, of Derry, and Matthew (Megan), of Frederick, Maryland; and four grandchildren, William, Alyssa, Eleanor and James.
Patti wants her joyful heart and her lifelong desire to serve others in Jesus name to be remembered.
