Elmarie Cox Goodwin, 88, died peacefully on June 15, 2016 at her daughter's home with both of her beloved children at her side. Elmarie was born in Pyriton, in Clay County, on February 09, 1928, the daughter of Elmer Clyde Cox and Nellie Ree Owen. Elmarie grew up in Talladega and it was there that she met and married the love of her life, James Reggy Alan Goodwin in 1948. In 1953, they moved to Anniston. In addition to raising their two children she was also a scout leader for both her daughter and her son and was always the first parent to volunteer for school functions. In the 1960's Elmarie worked at the Anniston Housing Authority and later became an accountant. In the 1980's and 90's she worked with the Alabama State Employment Service with the Summer Youth Employment Program. She had a lifelong love for reading. After retirement she became an avid collector and loved antiquing. She was a member of Parker Memorial Baptist Church. Elmarie was preceded in death by her husband, Reggy; her brother, Owen E. Cox (Joyce) and her sister, Carolyn Palmer (William H.). She is survived by her daughter, Cindy Hanner (Roy); her son, Alan Goodwin (Susan); granddaughters Lindsay Hanner Waits, Victoria Hanner Lambert (Patrick) and Hilary Harris (Russell); grandsons, Benjamin Goodwin (Chelsea) and Treye Hanner (Jana); nine great-grandchildren and a multitude of beloved cousins, nieces and nephews.
