Betty Wilcox: A woman with energy, much to give

OAK LAKE—It’s safe to say Betty Wilcox was a unique woman. People knew her for her tireless community efforts, her witty sayings and her love of her husband Ed and five children.

“She was my sugar. She was always there,” said Ed, sitting in his dining room table at his house on Oak Lake, stopping to deal with his emotions at times. “She was just part of me.”

Just over a month after she died and three days after what would have been her 87th birthday, Ed and two members of their family, Kris Schlievert and Jo Ebbert, reminisced about Betty. She died on June 15.
