Dale Lynette Wilkerson, 51, passed away on May 6, 2019, due to liver transplant complications several years after her second liver transplant. She was born on March 11, 1968, to John Dale Wilkerson and Joan Liggett in Kansas City, Mo. Her mother and father divorced when she was 2. Growing up she lived part of the time with her father in Kansas City and part of the time with her mother in Nixa, Mo. She attended Ruskin High School in Kansas City, Mo.

At the time of her death she lived in Ozark, Mo., and had been there for about 30 years. She had her first liver transplant in 1992 at the age of 24 as she had an autoimmune disease. She received her second liver transplant in November 2012.

She leaves behind two children, Christopher James Dale and his wife Misty of Ozark, and Heather Dawn of Springfield, Mo.; two sisters, Cindy Calhoun of Lee’s Summit, Mo., and Janette Tenille of Ozark; two brothers, John Kevin Wilkerson of Dunedin, Fla., and Cecil Hayes of Ozark; and three grandchildren, Bodee Wilkerson of Garrison, Mo., and Jaden Wilkerson and Bentlee Wilkerson of Ozark. She also leaves behind her mother, Joan Quisenberry, of Ozark; and her father, John Dale Wilkerson, and stepmother of 44 years, Ruth Wilkerson, of Kansas City, Mo. She had numerous aunts and uncles and cousins as she came from an extremely large family.

Lynette never complained about anything and would always say she felt “fine” even on days that she felt really terrible. She was always fun to be around and laughing all the time. She loved her grandchildren with all of her heart. You always knew where you stood with Lynette as she made it “very clear.” She was truly loved and is being missed by many.
