Susan Grubbe Hicks of The Groves in Land O Lakes, Florida passed away peacefully on May 10, 2019 surrounded by her family. Born June 22, 1939 in Oak Park, Illinois. Susan and her family moved from Illinois to Florida in 1976. Until her death she maintained strong family ties to relatives in the Chicago, Michigan and Atlanta areas. Her commitment to her family both near and far set an example on how to live a loving, compassionate life and was an influence to them all to be better and do more.
This love and compassion was also extended to her friends and neighbors and was demonstrated by her daily commitment to her many activities. As an early resident to The Groves, in 2002 Susan began to volunteer her time, participate on board committees and took responsibility for many social club functions. All of this was done with a smile and a deep appreciation of having so many caring people in her life. Susan loved her involvement with The Groves and leaves a permanent mark by having made her community a better place.
Susan is survived by her husband Michael, daughter Merrill Lee, sons Billy and Steve (Erin) and grandchildren Susan, Taylor, Drew, Cooper, Chloe and Steven.
