CASPER — Mary Ann Roberts Hicks, 79, of Casper, passed away Friday, March 30, 2018, surrounded by loved ones.
Mary Ann was born in Rock Springs, Wyoming on November 20th, 1938 to the late Chester and Dorothy Roberts. Mary Ann moved to Casper in 1981 to be closer to family and pursue a new career.
Mary Ann was a true trick of all trades and had a truly gifted work ethic. She did jobs ranging from managing the first Taco John’s in Rock Springs to running the Showboat motel in Casper. She worked for many years at Target and made many lifelong friends through her work. She spent her later years working for Office Max from which she retired in 2010. Mary Ann had a love for helping others and did so through Casper College’s GED program after retirement. She raised 7 children and was active in their sports and interests as they grew up. She had a special love for animals especially her cats. She was a terrific seamstress and sewed many of her daughters’ clothes when they were in grade school. She also made sure her sons looked pressed and proper wherever they went. Mary Ann truly was an amazing example of hard work and selflessness.

Hicks, Sr., 5 children; Ron McMillan Jr., Eugene Hicks Jr. (Glenda), Davey McMillan (Shanna) all of Casper; Rob McMillan (Leslie), and Dawn Larsen (Ernie) of Rock Springs.
