Nancy J. Cox

February 21, 1937July 6, 2018

Nancy Jean Cox entered eternal rest on July 6, 2018 at the age of 81. Born in Lumberton, North Carolina to Ingram Paul and Katie (Meares) Britt on February 21, 1937; she now reunites with her husband of 63 years, Kermit Lester Cox Jr., parents, and sister, C. Marie Fisher. Nancy was a dedicated member of Valley High Assembly of God Church for more than 30 years and served faithfully in the Church Choir as well as serving as a pre-school educator at the Valley High Assembly of God daycare. In later years she enjoyed a loving community of friends as she attended Cornerstone Church with her eldest daughter and husband. Nancy enjoyed crafting, floral arranging, gardening and was quite skillfull at finding a bargain. She excelled as a seamstress and was always more than overjoyed to provide her services to anyone in need. She was definitely a giver and true servant of the Lord, always making sure those she loved never went without. To say she was a doting mother and grandmother would be an understatement as she was the matriarch of 4 generations. She lived to provide for her family, never putting herself first, and made sure each generation was well taken care of. Her love and caring ways will be greatly missed by all she knew and loved. Her example will live on in the hearts of her family. She leaves behind to cherish her memories her daughters Ann Marie (Robert) O’Campo, Mary Beth (Gene) Pyatte; grandchildren: Jennifer (Lupe), Robert (Emily), Michael (Liz), Daniel, Evan (Lauren), Jennifer E.; great-grandchildren: Cailyn (Seth), Jadyn, Joclyn, Jacob, Hudson, Hayden, Ari, Rylee; great-great-grandson, Logan Lester; siblings Lynda and Paul (Anne) of Lumberton, North Carolina; and numerous beloved extended family members. The family will receive guests at the funeral home on July 17th beginning at 9:30am with a celebration of life from 11:30 -12:30. She will be laid to rest with her husband at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery immediately following services. Please visit the online guest book for condolences and shared memories.

There are no words to express the sadness that I feel for the loss of one of my dearest and most precious friends. I'm so very thankful for the day, just over a month ago, that Nancy and I spent together. I had moved away, and it had been a long, long time since we had been able to spend any real time together. We talked non-stop, reminiscing and remembering so much of our many years of friendship. We talked, we laughed, and we cried, as we remembered so many fun-filled joyful times and some very sad times that we had shared over the years. One of my many fond memories is that of my calling on many Saturday afternoons and saying, "y'all come on over. I'm making a "Lester Pie." (a peach cobbler that Lester loved).

What peace and comfort it is to know that Nancy and Lester are reunited in Heaven and rejoicing together in the Presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
