James Hickey

October 24, 1927 — January 23, 2021

James (Jim) Hickey died peacefully on January 23.  Jim was born and raised in the Cummermore, Kilcommon, Co. Tipperary farmland and bog where he perfected his infectious laugh in a household of like-minded siblings. Raised in a home where faith and God led him in his thoughts and actions, he hung his rosary beads at the door and used them in times of joy, solace...daily. His desire to learn led him to Hollyford School and his Sylda. And a note from the States ultimately led him to Chicago where he worked diligently to build his home, his family, and trust in those he came to know.  Predeceased by, and now reunited with, his devoted wife Sylda (Crowe). Loving father of Laura (Neil) Drohan, Lynn (Michael) Ciuchta, Paul (Michael Fustin) Hickey and Alan (Livia Mategrano) Hickey. Cherished grandfather to Maeve (Ashton) Wischmeier, Colin Drohan, and Madison Hickey. Great-grandfather to Eamon and Quinn Wischmeier. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Vitas Hospice.
