September 15, 1990

Services for Mary Louise Hicks, a soprano who sang in the late 1940s and early 1950s with the Baltimore Civic Opera, will be conducted at 10 a.m. Monday by St. Stephen's Traditional Episcopal Church in the chapel of Brown Memorial Woodbrook Presbyterian Church, 6200 N. Charles St.

Mrs. Hicks, who lived on Roland Avenue, died Wednesday at Johns Hopkins Hospital of a heart attack at the age of 65. She had been ill with diabetes.

She had been an active member of the Rosa Ponselle Club and the Baltimore Opera Guild, and she chaired the 1974 Grand Opera Ball. She also was a member of the Baltimore Symphony Associates and the Woman's Club of Roland Park.

The former Mary Louise Amos was a native of Lutherville and a 1942 graduate of Towson High School. She attended the Bard-Avon Secretarial School, the Maryland Institute and the Peabody Conservatory, where she studied voice with Eugene Martinet.

Her husband, Dr. Hugh F. Hicks, is a Baltimore dentist. Other survivors are two daughters, Louise Whitridge Smith and Frances Hicks Apollony, both of Baltimore; a brother, Charles Lewis Amos of Cumberland; and four grandchildren.
