Mary Ellen Cox Obituary
Mary Ellen Cox, 75, of Longmont Colorado, died peacefully in her sleep, on July 2, 2014, at Longmont United Hospital. Born February 2, 1939, in Council Bluffs, Iowa., she was preceded in death by her parents, Robert G. and Marie M. Linden of Council Bluffs, Iowa and her sister, Anne Gabehart of Crescent Iowa. Mary was a homemaker living in Longmont Co. with her husband of 57 years, Jim Cox, who she married on August 11, 1956 in Papillion, Nebraska. She was a snowbird to Yuma, Arizona every winter up until her passing. She loved reading, quilting, sewing, baking with her daughter, water aerobics, golfing and dancing with her husband Jim. She loved to travel with her husband and also with her sister Anne. Mary was also a member of The Women of the Moose. As we feel grief and sorrow at the loss of Mary, she will forever be remembered in the hearts of those who will always, and forever, love her. Survivors include her husband Jim Cox, daughter, Cindy (Dave Fobes) her son Mike Cox (Jane) all residing in Longmont. Her sister, Jane (Gary Flury) of Council Bluffs, Iowa, her grandsons Josh and Jason Fobes of Denver and Michael Cox of Longmont and her granddaughter Alexis Cox, also of Longmont. She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert G. and Marie M. Linden of Council Bluffs, Iowa and her sister, Anne Gabehart of Crescent Iowa. Mary selflessly donated her body to Science. Therefore, there will be no private services or inurnment. Science Care responsibly uses human tissue donation for medical research, training and professional education. Multiple Myeloma claimed her life in one short month. There is no cure for this disease now, but maybe someday.
