Notes for ORPHA SARAH JACKSON:

Orpha S. Wilcox

Orpha Sarah Wilcox, 93, of Parkersburg was called home to be with her Lord on Sunday, May 22, 2005, at Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital in Parkersburg. She was surrounded by her loved ones in her passing. Orpha was born March 17, 1912, in Graysville, Ohio, a daughter of the late Harry F. and Mae King Jackson. She grew up in Middlebourne/Tyler County. She was a member of the Calvary Memorial Church. She enjoyed hosting and attending many of her clubs: Garden Club, Homemakers, sewing, canasta and the Rebecca's. Orpha also enjoyed working at Misty Manufacturing on Saturdays. She is survived by her only son, Ottis F. Wilcox and his wife, Marge, of Parkersburg, with whom she made her home; two granddaughters and their husbands, Pamela and Pete Myers and Becky and Ron Cheuvront, all of Parkersburg; five great-grandchildren, Matthew, Samantha and Ryan Cheuvront, Adam Myers and wife, Allys, and Rebecca Myers, all of Parkersburg; several nieces and nephews; and her loving pet of many years, Gretchen. On Jan. 3, 1932, Orpha was united in marriage to Paul Newman Wilcox, who died in 1979. In addition to Paul, she was preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Janice Wilcox; her two brothers, Dean T. Jackson and Robert Jackson; and one sister, Ruth Jackson Farrell.

Funeral services will be 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Lambert-Tatman Funeral Home, 400 Green St., Parkersburg, with Pastor Rob Collins officiating. Orpha will be laid to rest beside her husband, daughter and other family members at the Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Parkersburg. The family will receive friends from 3-8 p.m. today and until service time Wednesday at the funeral home.

Orpha was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and will be sadly missed. Perhaps she will always be known as a dedicated mother and caregiver to her late daughter, Janice, for 60 years.

The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. James Spychalski, Hospice, and the third floor staff at Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital for their thoughtfulness, hospitality and for making Orpha's last five days as peaceful and comfortable as possible.
