Freda Mary Wilcox of Independence, MO, passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, March 25th, 2022. She was 98 years old.
A visitation will be held on Wednesday, March 30th, 2022, at Ascension Lutheran Church (4900 Blue Ridge Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64133) at 9:00am with services beginning at 10:00am.
Freda was born in Forest Green, MO on November 14th, 1923, to Lawrence and Lizzie Renne. She was a bookkeeper at Wayne Linen Supply for 22 years before retiring.
Freda enjoyed the simple pleasures life had to offer, such as going out to eat with loved ones and spending quality time with friends and family. She was an incredibly independent woman, still cooking meals and baking at home later into her life. She also loved to travel and had a competitive nature, indulging in card games, casinos and attending horse races whenever she could.
Freda is preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence and Lizzie Renne, her husband, Ted Wilcox, her son, David Wilcox, her daughter-in-law, Patti Wilcox, her four siblings, Elmer, Ray, Kenneth, and Delbert Renne, and grandson, Craig Schlichte. She is survived by her children, Karen (Robert) Snell, Clark Wilcox, Beth Wilcox, her grandchildren Christine (John) Riley, Matthew Schlichte, Catelynn Wilcox, Dylan Wilcox, Anna Wilcox, and Aaron Wilcox, and great grandchildren Dakoda James, Madeleine Bekker, and Autumn Divis.
