Jean (Durand) Wilcox

1922 - 2021


Jean Durand Wilcox passed away on February 20, 2021.  She was born in Canada and grew up in Orrville, Ohio. She graduated from OSU with a degree in music. Jean's husband Henry, the love of her life, suffered from Parkinson’s disease for many years until his passing in 1994. Jean was exceptionally devoted to Henry throughout illness. Jean was also preceded in death by her parents, Chalmer & Edith Durand, and her brother and his wife, John & Alpha Durand. Jean taught piano lessons for many years and later volunteered at several senior living facilities. Jean and Henry delighted in her young piano students, and she developed lasting friendships with many of her students and their families. She was a loyal friend and will be missed. Arrangements have been entrusted to Deyo-Davis funeral home.  Due to the current COVID situation, no formal services are scheduled.

I would like to echo my sister Becky's thoughts about Mrs. Wilcox. She was a devoted teacher and friend. She was a person of loyalty and commitment. My sister and I and our whole family were blessed to have known Mrs. Wilcox--she will not be forgotten.

Mrs. Wilcox was my first music teacher. I enjoyed five years of piano lessons with her. She helped set the foundation for me to have a career in music as a violinist and music teacher. She also became a life-long friend to our whole family. Mrs. Wilcox was a special lady who became like a family member to us. She was kind, thoughtful, and had a good sense of humor. She will be greatly missed.
