Wilma Brock Drake

                  WADESBORO – On Thursday, January 27, 2022, Mrs. Wilma Brock Drake, 79, beloved daughter, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend peacefully passed away at McWhorter Hospice House in Monroe with her children at her bedside. 

            There will be a service honoring her life at 2:00pm Tuesday, February 1, 2022, by the graveside in Griffin Cemetery in Polkton with Dr. Harry Workman officiating. She will be laid to rest beside her parents. 

            The family will greet friends following the service at a reception at the Polkton Depot. 

            Wilma was born July 10, 1942, in Anson County, NC and was a daughter of the late Wilson Dewitt Brock and the late Virginia Hodge Brock. She was a 1960 graduate of Polkton High School where she was head cheerleader. 

            She retired as a deputy clerk with the Anson County Clerk of Court’s office, working with Juvenile Court for more than 25 years. 

            Wilma had many interests but some of her most loved were, playing bridge with her friends, gardening, as she had a green thumb, and fishing with her brother and grandchildren. She dearly loved her family and friends and always looked forward to sharing a meal with those she loved. To say she was a true Carolina Tarheel fan is an understatement. 

            Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Sandy Harrington of Lexington, SC, Mike Harrington of Ansonville, David Drake of Mt. Pleasant, Amy Lamb of Greensboro and Ashley Drake (Joy) of Peachland; her grandchildren, Macky Harrington (Princess), Jordan Harrington, Dave Drake (Kristie), Ben Drake (Shae), Thomas Lamb, Haley Drake and Tayler Drake; her great-grandchildren, Jada Harrington, Susan Harrington, Issac Rosado, Ava Mae Bostick, Malina Bostick, David Drake, III, Mila Drake and Elise Drake, who is due to arrive anytime; and her sisters and brother, Carolyn Edwards of Hamlet, Helen Munno of Stanly, Marian Dennis and Frances Pope both of Wadesboro, Judy Sharpe (Larry) of Winston-Salem and Stanley Brock (Linda) of Polkton and her nieces and nephews and their families. 

            In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Ansonia Theatre at the Anson County Arts Council, P.O. Box 332, Wadesboro, NC 28170 or to the Friends of the Anson County Animal Shelter, Tarlton and Taylor, P.O. Box 828, Wadesboro, NC 28170. 


            The arrangements are in care of Leavitt Funeral Home and online condolences may be made at
