Patti Ann (Patricia) Wilcox |
April 15, 1942 ó April 1, 2016
Friday morning, my beautiful Pattiís two-year, ferocious battle with liver cancer came to a peaceful end.
She was born April 15, 1942, in Sheboygan Falls, to Joseph and Laverne Hildebrand. She had an older sister, Judy (Klein-Davenport), who is deceased, and a younger brother, Michael (Wilma), now in Florida. She married Ron Beeck and had three beautiful children.
On December 31, 1982, Patti and Michael Wilcox were married because we were crazy nuts in love with each other. We honeymooned in Hawaii, which quickly became our favorite vacation destination. For many years, we vacationed every year some place warm. Patti loved her flowers, traveling and family.
Patti is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Mike of 33 years; her three children, Julie (Jim) Hellen of Waukesha, Jennifer (Todd) Bell of St. Peterís, Mo., and Jeff (Diane) Beeck of Hartland; as well as three step children, Patrick (Jill) Wilcox of Olathe, Kan., Brad (Julie) Wilcox of Olathe and Niki (Chuck) Zielke of Franklin. She was very proud of her grandchildren Melissa Hellen (Wauwatosa), Amanda Bell (University City, Mo.), Emily Bell (South Carolina), Chloe Ann Bell (St. Peterís, Mo.), Zachary Beeck (Hartland), Jonathan Beeck (Hartland), Andy Wilcox (Lawrence, Kan.), Robby Wilcox (Olathe), Tanner Zielke (Oshkosh), Josh Zielke (Franklin) and Madeline Wilcox (Olathe).
Arrangements include visitation at St. Maryís Catholic Church, 225 S. Hartwell Ave., Waukesha, WI 53186, at 10:00 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian burial at 12:00 noon on Thursday, April 7. Internment will be at Oak Knoll Cemetery in Mukwonago.
We wish to express a very special thanks to Dr. Raza and his staff of the Pro-Health Oncology department, the ProHealth-Home Hospice department, nurse Allison (and her daughter), and aides Melissa and Darleen.
