History

July 6, 1955, Hicks Home for Funerals, P.A. was opened for business.

Grand OpeningAfter graduating Echols Mortuary College in Philadelphia, Ralph Hicks along with his wife, Ellanor, was employed with the Ruck Funeral Home in the Baltimore/Washington area. After a few years in the metropolitan area, Mr. and Mrs. Hicks returned to their home town of Elkton to open a new funeral home. A man dedicated to his family, career and community, it became his lifelong goal to make his hometown a good place to raise a family. He conducted his business with compassion and consideration for the financial situations in which families often find themselves when a loved one dies, whether expected or unexpected. This has been the goal of the generations which are following in his footsteps. In 1965, Donald Hicks began working at the funeral home, attended Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science, graduating with honors in 1971. A second generation funeral director, he had an exemplary role model in his father. Celebrating 50 YearsAfter earning degrees in history and women's studies from the University of Delaware, Kristen Hicks Erisman became the third generation of the Hicks family to attend mortuary school. Matriculating, summa cum laude, from Catonsville Community College, Baltimore County, in 2005 she thus became the third generation of the Hicks family to become a licensed mortician.

The funeral home, located on the comer of Bow and Stockton Streets in Elkton, has been serving the Elkton community for more than fifty years.
