June 7th, 1942-November 28th, 2013

" Lindy" was born in Richmond California, she moved to Ferndale, Washington with her parents Irby and Charlotte Hicks in the fifties. After school she became a military wife and lived in many exciting places including the Philippines and Okinawa, Japan. When deciding to put down roots in the United States, she and Fernzwood and their four children chose Seattle, Washington, where she stayed for the remaining forty two years of her life. Lindy had a very successful career at Sears on First and Lander in Seattle where she worked for more than 30 years.

Family time and entertaining is what she did best. Lindy could cook and decorate with utter ease; it came so naturally as she truly was an artistic soul. A close second to those given talents was her ability to love animals and plants and good books, lots and lots of good books.

Melinda passed in her sleep on Thanksgiving Day, the way she would have wanted it. She is survived by her daughters; Melissa, Alicia, Kelli and son Bud, as well, seven grandchildren, Amanda, Hilary, Alex, Elizabeth, Ethan, Caitlyn and Charlotte, and four and counting great-grandchildren, Lexi, Lena, Lily, Karleigh and a new baby girl due in April of 2014. Melinda also leaves behind six brothers and sisters, Bob, Laurel, Barbara, Charlie, Bill and John, as well as many wonderful close friends.

A service celebrating Lindy’s life will be held on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 2:00pm at Ferndale First Baptist Church located at 5759 Vista Drive, Ferndale Washington.

I loved working with Lindy, she was great fun, sensitive, and had a wonderful sense of humor. I worked part-time but enjoyed my time with Lindy, Gail, Paul, and the many other
Sears staff, we were an amazing Sears group.
Much love to the family, thank you for sharing Lindy with all of us. Benester
