Ewilda Matchett and family send our heartfelt condolences to the Cox family.
My thoughts & prayers are with Pam & Ray, Jr. Mrs. Cox was my 8th grade English teacher at Cloverdale Jr. High. On my first Sunday attending WindSong Church of Christ she came across the auditorium to speak to me after services. I placed my membership there and usually sit with her during worship or right behind her. She was a very sweet lady & she will be missed.
So sorry for your loss. As we have grown to know one another, I have listened as you shared pieces of information about her I understood she was a special woman and Mom. God bless you and your brother for the care you provided.
Mrs. Cox was one of my favorite teachers at Cloverdale and did all she could to teach me how to diagram sentences. She was very nice, fair and gently demanded the best effort of her students. I am glad to see she lived a long life and I trust the family has many warm memories of her.
Dear Cox Family,I am a former Cloverdale Junior High student. Although I never had Mrs. Cox as a teacher, I knew who she was and would speak to her at school. She was such a sweet lady! I’m so sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathy to the family🙏🏻Cathy Stamps AlleyCloverdale Cub 1968 thru 1970
