DeVeda Wicker Cox

Polkton – Mrs. DeVeda Wicker Cox, age 72, slipped away peacefully on Monday, March 30, 2020, while at her home. Due to public gathering restrictions issued by the State of North Carolina, memorial services will be held at a later date. DeVeda was born in Aberdeen, NC, on June 13, 1947, the youngest of four children born to Raymond Blackwell Wicker and Lila Bonnie Brigman Wicker. She graduated Aberdeen High School in 1965. DeVeda worked for a short time in Greensboro as a dental assistant and later made her way to Anson County working at Wansona, Inc. Following Wansonia’s closure, she worked for Hornwood, Inc. until her retirement. She was a longtime resident of Polkton. Survivors include her daughter, DeRita C. Carpenter (Amos) of Wadesboro and their son, Martin Carpenter; and her son, Johnny Cox (Tricia) of Huntersville and their son, Greyson Cox. Also surviving is a number of extended family members such as nieces, nephews, etc. The family would like to recognize Gail Clark for her outstanding love and concern demonstrated in her devoted care of DeVeda over the last months. The family suggest memorials be made to the American Heart Association online at www.heart.org. Leavitt Funeral Home is serving the Cox Family.
