Wilcox, Marge - Le Grande  
Margaret Hope Follis Wilcox August 9, 1931 - May 16, 2015 Margaret "Marge" Wilcox, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 16, 2015, in her home at the Soares Ranch in Le Grand, California, at the age of 83, surrounded by her loving family and loyal dog "Missy." Marge was born at the end of the "Great Depression," at home in Madera, California, to William and Mamie Follis, on August 9, 1931. Marge was their only child.  Her parents' families had recently migrated to California from Oklahoma and Texas. She was preceded in death by her loving parents, and husband, Jack Louis Wilcox, with whom she shared 51 years of an adventurous marriage. Marge is survived by her two daughters, Jackie Campidonica of Soulsbyville, and Margie "Jeanie" Soares and husband Jack of Le Grand.  Four grandchildren, Teresa Gonzalez and husband Ray of Le Grand,  Angie Norton and husband Philip of Soulsbyville, Matt Kelleher and wife Vanessa of Le Grand, and Lindsey Njirich and Fiancé Bryan Beck of Sonora and thirteen great grandchildren. Marge was a kind, and generous person with a contagious smile and beautiful blue eyes. She was raised in the Madera and Oakhurst communities surrounded by numerous Great Uncles, Great Aunties and cousins.  One of her fondest memories is while working at the Bass Lake Resort and stables as a teenager. When she and her husband Jack married in 1951 they settled in Mendocino County where they began their family and eventually bought their first home in the small grape growing community of Redwood Valley.  Marge worked in the Mendocino County Treasurers Office in Ukiah before moving to Tuolumne County with her family in 1964.  While living in Sonora she worked for many years for Safeway and eventually moved to Merced, California in 1974 where she and her husband formed an underground cable business called, Jacmar Communications Construction, and some years later formed, Jacmar Quarry in Jamestown.  She enjoyed helping and visiting tourist from around the world who stopped in tour buses daily to shop at her Merced family owned business called, The Fruit Barn.  Marge and her husband Jack also owned a gold mining company for several years in Mariposa County, and each of their daughters, and grandchildren, received a gold nugget keepsake. Marge and Jack always owned a boat for water skiing and fishing, and with the help of Rick Njirich, and friends they built a houseboat that they enjoyed for many years on Lake McClure.  They also enjoyed many road trips in their motorhome, especially to the northern California coast where they enjoyed visiting friends, eating lots of abalone, and playing card games by a campfire.  Most recently Marge enjoyed traveling with family to Alaska, Hawaii and Missouri. Marge was an avid gardener and enjoyed sewing, crocheting and quilting.  Every member of her family has a quilt with a tag that reads, "Especially made for you by Nana."  She had a life well lived, and always found the joy in all things.  Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her greatest joy and she was supportive, loving, and ever present in their lives. She was a beloved member of the Le Grand Christian Bible Church with Pastor John Flanagan.  A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 30, 2015 at Ivers and Alcorn Funeral Home, located at 901 W Main Street in Merced.  A "Celebration of Life," will be held immediately following the service at the Bella Luna Restaurant, located at 350 W Main Street in Merced.   In lieu of flowers memorial gifts may be made to your local Hospice or Humane Society. www.cvobituaries.com
