Nancy Wilcox
Nancy Wilcox  

November 26, 1946 — November 3, 2020
My good friend of 29 years, Nancy Wilcox, formerly of Eureka and Santa Rosa (born in Mount Vernon, Washington) passed away at 10 p.m. on election night November 3, in her sleep. I'd met Nancy at one of Jerry Jampolski's Attitudinal Healing (based on A Course in Miracles) workshops in Tiburon, California in 1991 and we were in a family workshop group together. Nancy was a kind and loyal friend and quick to let out a hearty laugh.

Nancy was preceded in death by her brother Donnie Wilcox (2016) and her life partner Eva Blackwood (2003). Nancy was 73 years of age when she passed away at a nursing home in Napa, and was suffering from dementia. Nancy had worked as a supervisor for a Sonoma County program that monitored the welfare of senior citizens.
