Connie M. Cox - Madelyn Mae Dodd - Alvin Junior Reed
Connie Cox went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2006. She was born Constance D. Moyer on Dec. 23, 1933, in Bethlehem, Pa. While studying to be a nurse, her mother introduced her to Harold Cox. Connie married Harold on April 5, 1952. Together they moved to Orofino, Idaho, where they spent many happy years together. From there they moved around following Harold’s logging career and eventually settled in Cortez, Colo., with their four children.
In Cortez, Connie and Harold owned and operated Sonshine Lumber for many years. While there, Connie was very involved with her church and with Women’s Aglow Fellowship. She also made many friends selling Avon products in the area during this time. Once all of their children were grown, Connie and Harold moved to Kingman. Here they ran the Kingman ServiceMaster business, as well as Sunshine Home Repair.
Connie is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 53 years; her sons, David and Danny and daughters, Debbie and Cindy, their spouses; eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held for her at 10:30 a.m., on Saturday, March 4, at Rock Springs Community Church, 32233 E. Highway 160, Cortez, Colo.
Connie loved being with her husband, arts and crafts, oil painting, and picking huckleberries in Idaho with Harold; but more than anything Connie loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Although she will be greatly missed here on Earth, her family rejoices that she is at home with Christ now.
