Fanny Rogers Wilcox was born on December 29, 1939 to the late Oscar and Christine Wilcox in Columbus, Georgia.  Since her father was a member of the Army Air Corps, which later became the United States Air Force, Fan was raised in many locations, including California and Okinawa.  She was a graduate of Biloxi Central High School, Biloxi, Mississippi and later received her BA degree from Asbury College, Wilmore, Kentucky.  She later received her MA degree from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia and then had an add-on in visual disabilities from Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. She taught French and English at Jordan High School in Columbus and then taught the same two subjects at the Georgia Academy of the Blind in Macon. Fan then became an itinerant teacher for the blind/visually impaired in Athens, Columbus and DeKalb County.  After retirement in 1992, she lived in Blairsville, Buena Vista and Americus.

Before and after retirement, Fan traveled with a group of friends to various interesting places, including Canada, California, New England, the Panama Canal, Hawaii, Egypt, Australia and New Zealand.

Fan is survived by many cousins and friends.
