Nancy Louise Hicks, 74, of Montgomery, Alabama, entered the glorious gates of Heaven on August 30, 2023. Born in Kentucky, she moved to Alabama in the early 1950s where she grew up and attended Harrison Elementary and Bellingrath Junior High before graduating from Lanier High School. She went on to obtain an associate degree from ACA College/Faulkner University. In 1969 she married her husband Robert (Bobby) Hicks. Louise and Bobby are parents to four sons, Michael, Steve, David, and DJ.
Louise retired from the Montgomery Public School system at Carver High School and began working at Amridge University, where she remained employed until her unexpected passing.
Louise was preceded in death by her parents, Jack and Margaret Gilbert, and her sister, Lynn Gilbert Starling.

Louise was a member of Vaughn Park Church of Christ and loved worshipping our Lord and Savior. She had a beautiful singing voice.
She always showed special love to her grandchildren by attending all of their various sporting events and activities. These are the things she cherished most.
