We’re sorry to report that Margaret Hines Sickels passed away June 19, 2019, at 91.
After graduating from Mary Washington, she earned a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in biological sciences from Northwestern University and spent a career in higher education helping instill in her students an appreciation of biology and the wonders and beauty of our natural world.
Besides teaching at numerous colleges and universities, she embraced passions for birding, travel, music, art, and more. A son, Stephen Sickels, and a daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Lemersal, survive her.
