Age: 88
Grosse Pointe Farms resident Mary MacIvor Wilcoxon, 88, died peacefully in her home on Sunday, Jan. 11, 2004.

Born in Detroit in 1915, Mrs. Wilcoxon graduated from the Kingswood School, Cranbrook and the University of Michigan, where she was affiliated with the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.

Though Mrs. Wilcoxon was blind for the last 25 years of her life, she continued to read prolifically because of the books on tape provided by the Wayne County Library for the Blind.

She was an active member of the Pointe Garden Club and Friends of Vision as well as a longtime member of the Grosse Pointe United Church.

She traveled extensively with her husband Rolo Wilcoxon, who preceded her in death. After his death, she shared her love of travel with her family. Her most recent trip was last December with her family to Antigua.

Mrs. Wilcoxon is survived by daughters Mary Lee McNaughton (James), Claire W. Perry (Kenneth) of Grosse Pointe Farms; and Ann W. Mullen (Donald); and grandchildren Katherine R. Perry, Kenneth C. Perry, Kristen M. Perry, Gregory O. Mullen, Brendan J. Mullen and Alexander R. Mullen.

A funeral service was held on Thursday, Jan 15, at the Grosse Pointe United Church.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Wayne County Library for the Blind, 3055 Michigan Ave., Westland, MI 48186.
