Woman Passes Away And Her Children Write A Hilarious First-Person Obituary

Although there may be many happy times in life, one of the saddest times that we will ever experience is when one of our family members dies. It sometimes maybe a distant relative but when it is a mother or a father, the pain can cut very deep. We may even spend years getting over the grief but sometimes, we might find that a little bit of laughter helps us to deal with the situation in the best way we possibly can. In fact, you may even find that laughter is the best medicine when it comes to grieving.

This was seen in The Hamilton Spectator recently when an obituary was published. It was for a woman named Sybil Marie Hicks, and although you probably have never heard of her before, you are about to know her quite intimately. The obituary was written from her perspective but it was her children who actually wrote down the words. When you read down through it, you can’t help but notice how good of a life she probably had and judging by what her children did, it seems as if she was quite loved as well.

Humor is always something that you would want to keep fast hold of, regardless of what your age is or the situation you may be experiencing in life. The humor behind this obituary will make you laugh and it will also make you appreciate a woman that you never knew before.

Here is the obituary for your preusal:

It hurts me to admit it… but I, Mrs. Ron Hicks from Baysville, have passed away. I passed peacefully with my eldest daughter, Brenda, by my side February 2, 2019 at 8:20 a.m.”

“I leave behind my loving husband, Ron Hicks, whom I often affectionately referred to as a ‘Horse’s Ass’.”

“I also left behind my children whom I tolerated over the years; Bob (with Carol) my oldest son and also my favourite. Brian (with Ginette) who was the Oreo cookie favourite, Brenda AKA “Hazel” who would run to clean the bathrooms when she heard company was coming. Barbara (with Gordon) the ever Miss Perfect and finally Baby Bruce who wouldn’t eat homemade turkey soup because he didn’t want to be alert looking for bones while he ate.”

“I will miss seeing my sweetest grandchildren; Caitlin, Megan, Joel, Issac, Mason, Rachel, Annie, Emma, Harrison, Clark, Choe, Orion, Griffin …grow up to be the incredible people they are meant to be.”

“I graduated from Waterdown High School with honors while wearing my shiny bright saddle shoes. I later graduated from Hamilton General Hospital School Nursing class of 1975B – Best Class EVER!”

“In 1972 Ron and I loaded the car with the 5- B’s and headed north to run a school bus company for over 20 years in Baysville, Ontario. I was an active horticulturalist, a member of the Eastern Star and a member of the Lion’s Club in Baysville.”

“I finally have the smoking hot body I have always wanted… having been cremated.”

“Please come say goodbye and celebrate my wonderful life with my husband and his special friend Dorothy who is now lovingly taking care of my horse’s ass.”

“For those of you who are wondering who assisted me in writing this… it wasn’t my husband, it wasn’t my oldest, nor was it my youngest…”

“Thank you all for sharing my life with me. I am off to swim to the buoy and back.”

“Love, Sybil”
