Connie Mouritsen Wilcox Obituary
1931 ~ 2017
Our beautiful, amazing mother, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt, and dear friend Connie Mouritsen Wilcox sadly passed away on August 24, 2017 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was born August 21, 1931 to Homer Mouritsen and June Caldwell in Bennington, Idaho. She moved to Salt Lake City, Utah where she met our father Herbert Gerard Wilcox and they were married for 58 years in the Salt Lake City Temple. They had six beautiful children, ten adorable grandchildren, and four great grandkids with one on the way.
Connie always lived her life through her art and to the fullest. She always went out of her way to meet someone and make them feel very special in an uplifting positive way. She has faced many tragedies in her lifetime something no mother should have to go through. It comforts us to know that she is back with her husband Herbert Wilcox, sons, David and Richard Wilcox a daughter Nancy Wilcox and a granddaughter Jennifer Wilcox. She leaves behind a brother Russell and his wife Kathleen Mouritsen, a sister in law Georgia Mouritsen, sons Thomas and James Wilcox a daughter Susie and her husband Darrin Nelson and a daughter in law Connie Jean Wilcox, as well as a niece who is like a daughter, Jamie Hayden, nine grandchildren, and many wonderful nieces and nephews.
