Patricia Wilcox July 15, ]927 - Jan. 24, 2012 Patricia Alice Wilcox, 84, of Sweet Home died Jan. 24, 2012. She was born July 15, 1927 in Shanghai, China to George and Maria (Ferras) Tyler. When the Japanese invaded China, she and her family were interned at Longhwa Internment Camp in Shanghai from 1942 - 1945. Despite the lack of many of the essentials of civilized life, the internees rose to meet the chal- lenge of survival. They organized kitchens and hospitals, started li- braries, engaged in subtle forms of resistence, educated their children and kept their strength until the end of the war. A fellow prisoner, Peggy Abkhazi, wrote a book about their experience called "A Curious Cage." Following World War II, she was working at a local post office when she met her husband Walter E Wilcox, who had retired from the U.S. Navy while in Shanghai. They were married in 1947 and came to America by boat, arriv- ing in San Francisco, Calif. Their journey brought them to Sweet Home. Mrs. Wilcox lived in Sweet Home, Lebanon and various other towns in Oregon and in Eurek a , Calif. They returned to Sweet Home in 1963 so Walter could begin work on Foster Dam. Mrs. Wilcox was a mem- ber of the Sweet Home Elkettes for many years, serving as presi- dent and vice president. She was also a member of the Ladies Auxiliary-VFW. She and Walter assisted with many of the Sports- man's Holiday events. She was also a dance instructor for the Ar- thur Murray Dance Studio. Mrs. Wilcox enjoyed her flower garden, crafting and cro- cheting beautiful items for her grandchildren. She also enjoyed her expert crossword puzzles and huge jigsaw puzzles. As an avid reader, she taught herself French and learned to play the organ on her own. She made wonderful Chinese din- ners and loved to go to rum- mage sales, looking for lit- tle treasures. She is survived by a daughter, Edith of Sweet Home; sons Mike, Jim and Chris of Sweet Home, and Bill of Waterloo; brother Larry and his wife Toni Tyler of Glasgow, Scotland; sis- ter-in-law Jean Wilcox of Albany; numerous nieces and nephews; 12 grandchildren; 20 great-grand- children, two great-great-grand- children; and her caretaker, Deb- bie Thompson.
