Wilcox, Annette (Sloan) 1858-1932 Morris Obituary
Mrs. George R. Wilcox
Morris, Dec. 30---Mrs. George R. Wilcox died at about 4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon at her home on West Main street after an illness of but a few hours' duration. Mrs. Wilcox, although not in good health, had tenderly cared for her husband, George Wilcox, who has been an invalid for a long time, nearly helpless for over a year, and her passing seems doubly sad because of the frail companion whom she leaves behind.
Annette (Sloan) Wilcox, daughter of the late Joshua and Sarah Mosher Sloan, was born in Burlington May 4, 1858, where she spent her entire girlhood. On November 21, 1882, she was united in marriage to George B. Wilcox and for a number of years they resided in South Hartwick. To them were born three children, Mrs. Earl Southern of Oneonta, Mrs. Louis Card of Morris, and George Wilcox, Jr. who died in 1913 at the age of 24.
About 40 years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox came to Morris to live and Mr. Wilcox began his long and faithful service of 36 years as mail carrier between Morris and Oneonta, retiring only when poor health compelled him to cease actual work.
The deceased was a member of Zion Episcopal church for many years, a past matron of Jewell chapter, Order of the Eastern Star, and as long as her health permitted, she was active in the work of both societies. However, her chief interest was in the home, where as a devoted wife and a kind and indulgent mother, her memory will be cherished.
The immediate surviving relatives are the husband and two daughters previously mentioned, also six grandchildren and numerous nephews and nieces, to all of whom the sincere sympathy of the community is extended.
Private funeral services, conducted by Rev. E. E. Hutchinson, rector of Zion Episcopal church, will be held from the family home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment will be in Hillington cemetery.
The following out of town relatives attended the funeral of Mrs. George Wilcox Sunday: Mr. and Mrs. Earl Southern, Mr. and Mrs. Milton Southern, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Southern, The Misses Erma and Alice Southern and Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Gorton of Oneonta; Mr. and Mrs. John Hoke and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hoke of Mohawk; Mrs. Mary Naylor, Herbert Naylor and Mr. and Mrs. Courtney Hoose of Mt. Vision; and Mrs. Merton Beckley and Miss M. Beckley of Hartwick.
