Jean M. Hickey
Jean M. Hickey, 72, of Fond du Lac, died Tuesday, September
10, 2019 at Hospice Home of Hope. She was born in Monroe, Wis. on April 30,
1947, a daughter of Valentine and Eleanor (née Martin) Zibung. Jean married

in death on May 16, 2013.
Jean worked as a job coach at Advocap for twenty years. She
was responsible for Advocap’s Federal Program, Title 5. This program provided
the necessary work experience for individuals to secure permanent employment.
For twelve years, Jean and Jim were foster parents and “treated each one as
their own.” They also hosted international high school students for St. Mary’s
Springs. Jean was close to her Lord and
Savior and subsequently was a member of the Christian Women’s group at Holy
Family and for twenty years, the church choir.
In lieu of flowers, Jean requested that donations be given
to the Salvation Army of Fond du Lac, and children in need of financial
assistance for the Fond du Lac Family YMCA’s swim program and/or the hot lunch
program at Rosenow Elementary in Fond du Lac.
