Mary-Ann Fick

Mary-Ann Fick, a 51-year resident of Torrance, CA, passed away on Sunday, December 1, 2013 in Torrance.

Born in Buffalo, NY, Mary-Ann was 84 when she died. She was a member of St. James Catholic Church and an avid supporter of Special Olympics. Even though Mary-Ann moved to California, she remained a committed Buffalo Bills fan.

Mary-Ann was a gifted seamstress.

She is survived by sons, Drew Fick (Mitch) of Tam-pa, FL and Rick Fick (Donna) of Mission Viejo, CA; and daughter, Ann Marie Hagan of Ventura, CA.

Mary-Ann was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Richard Fick Sr.; son Bobby Fick; and parents, Agnes and William Larson. She is also survived by her brother, Bill Larson (Mary Ann); three grand- children, Mark Hagan Jr. (Amy), Tyler Fick and Kristin Fick; plus three great-grandchildren, Riley, Gracie and Mark Hagan.
