After a brief illness, Tawn D. P. Hicks passed away quietly at home. Tawn was born in Oakland, CA – the youngest daughter of Del and Bette Patterson. Tawn graduated from El Cerrito High School and attended the California College of Arts and Crafts.
She is survived by her husband of 44 years Dale, three sons Erik (Cathy), Phillip (Rose) and Austin (Mary) and granddaughter, Dallas.
Tawn loved owls and anything Disney. Her home was adorned with owl pictures and figurines as well as many Disney items. As a talented artist, she was especially fond of decorating their home, particularly during Christmas, in eager anticipation of her sons and their families coming home for the holidays.
Growing up, she spent many summers at their family ranch in Diamond Springs, CA with her grandparents Curtis and Leona Patterson. She often credited her grandfather for her strong moral values and character. Yet, she had a gentleness that she instilled in her sons.
