Born on September 9, 1915 in Casson’s Neck, Cambridge, MD, she was the daughter of the late Harry C. and Lena Thomas Bennett. She attended the local school there and resided in Casson’s Neck until her admission to the Chesapeake Woods Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in December of 2002.

On December 21, 1935 she married C. Olie Wilcox. Together, they had celebrated sixty-one years of marriage until Mr. Wilcox’s death December 1, 1997. On August 5, 1938 their only child, Gordon N. Wilcox, was born. He died on January 14, 1991.

Vacation time, she and her husband looked forward to trips with Emerson “Peanut” and Emma Rosetta as they visited various states. They greatly enjoyed visits with their family and friends. It was always a joy to have their grandson, “J.R.”, visit with them on weekends.
