Dolores Byard Wilcoxson M-H-19-4

Dolores Byard Wilcoxson, 80, of Edinburgh, Indiana, passed away on January 3, 2019. Dolores fought a long, hard battle with several cancers, until ultimately succumbing to the multiple myeloma cancer. Dolores was born on March 7, 1938 in Moores Hill, Indiana. She was the daughter of Charles ‘Bud’ Byard and Golda (Albright) Littlejohn along with step father Harry Littlejohn. She is survived by her daughters Ginny (Richard) Holmes of Laconia, New Hampshire, Vicki (Mike) Troyer of Fort Wayne, Indiana, her son Yancy (Laura) Wilcoxson of West Lafayette, Indiana, her brother John (Judy) Littlejohn of Columbus, Indiana, her brother in-law Phillip (Bonnie) Wilcoxson of Edinburgh, Indiana, and seven grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her brother, Marvin Byard. Dolores was a cheerleader and 1956 graduate of Edinburgh High School, where she met her lifelong husband Glen, whom she married on January 5, 1957. They were longtime residents and integral part of the Edinburgh area community until shortly after Glen’s passing, when Dolores moved to the Four Seasons Retirement Community in Columbus, Indiana where she quickly made many new friends. Dolores had this uncanny ability to make instant connections with everyone she met through her sweet caring genuineness combined uniquely with her unfiltered saltiness and mischievous giggle. Bargain shopping, gift giving, and cooking for family and friends brought her much joy, which we will surely and sorely miss. Family and friends can honor Dolores’ life by gathering at the Eskew-Eaton Funeral Home, 302 East Main Cross Street, Edinburgh, Indiana. The calling hours are from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 8 and the funeral will be on Wednesday starting at 1 p.m., conducted by Reverend Sean Johnson. After the funeral, there will be a procession to the Rest Haven Cemetery in Edinburgh for a brief burial service. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Edinburgh United Methodist Church, 107 West Campbell St., Edinburgh, Indiana or organizations such as The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation ( and The Myeloma Beacon
