In Memory of
Mary Jane Hicks
May 18, 1915 - May 18, 2006
The Allen Theatre family mourns the passing and
celebrates the life of Mary Jane Hicks, who died on her
91st birthday, May 18, 2006, at the Hershey Medical
Center. Without her support and love, the Allen would
still be an unrealized dream.
Mary Jane (or "MJ") was the full benefactor
and treasurer of the Allen Theatre and MJ's Coffeehouse,
which was named in her honor. She was elated at its
success and was especially thrilled to see how extensively
the theatre reaches out to the community, and, in turn,
how the community embraces the theatre. Patrons could
often see her selling tickets at the box office. Beyond
the Allen Theatre and MJ's Coffeehouse, Mrs. Hicks was a
most generous benefactor to numerous individuals and
organizations both locally and nationally.
Mrs. Hicks was a life-long resident of Lebanon, PA. For
many years she was an integral volunteer for the Salvation
Army as well as many other service organizations. Mary
Jane loved all holiday family gatherings and especially
looked forward to the patriotic celebrations.
Her husband, the late Allen J. Hicks, died
We miss you, Mary Jane.
