    Hughes and family, The Ryan’s send their deepest sympathy. Margie was such an amazing lady, and such a dear friend to our Mom. I’m sure they are getting in to mischief again up in heaven! Our hearts and prayers go out to all of you. We would all love to send a card if someone could email me Hughes’ current address, if it’s not too much trouble. Thanks Mary McGrath

    Dear Hughes, Hughes Hughes Junior, Anne, Tim and Mary,
    We were sad to hear of the loss of your beautiful wife and mother. So many good memories of our days together on 58th Street, and my days of babysitting for you as God blessed you with such a wonderful family! Margie was loved by all who were lucky enough to meet her, and catch her beautiful smile. She is now where she wanted to be all along, and my dear folks are so glad to see her
    again! Love, Mike, Jan and Family

    Margie Wilcox, always Mrs. Wilcox to me. Rascal and you are surely united! (Rascal was the famous cat)

    She must be one of the only adults ever to so easily get children to eat split pea soup (it was one of my favorite things about the Wilcox kitchen – that and her famous lemon bars). She used to ride this purple banana seat bike down to our house every morning for coffee with my mom (Dorothy Matt). I have so many memories of hiding in the next room listening for any juicy gossip – there wasn’t much just two strong women providing comfort, companionship, and support to each other.

    Part 2 of 2
    I loved how much Margie LOVED Nebraska volleyball. She had a real appreciation for strong female athletes (surely from Anne and Mary). I had a funny interaction with Margie and Hughes the last time I was in Omaha; I was telling them how much I was appreciating learning about Warren Buffett’s approach to investing and how being from Omaha and living in San Francisco always came with the question “do you know Warren?” Margie laughed and told me I was at their house countless times when Warren and Susie were there playing bridge. Mary and I were most surely outside playing basketball.

    Margie will live on in my memories as a great wife, mother, and best friend to my mom. She was also such an important person to all of us “friends of her kids” including myself and my brothers Mark and Steve who are still so close to Tim.

    Hughes take care of yourself, I wish I could come back to Omaha and give you all a big hug. (travel is a little tricky right now). Sooo Much love. Jennie Matt

    As a college roommate and life long friend of D. Hughes I have fond memories of Mrs. Wilcox (Margie). She always had a kind word to say and it would usually be served up with a good cup of coffee. Sending our condolences to all of the wonderful Wilcox family.

    Love and Aloha,
    Bill, Laurie and Lucy Murphy
