To say Heaven gained an angel would be an understatement; Heaven received a warrior on July 1, 2016.|
Jeannie Danielle Cox was an inspiration to our community. She loved with all her heart and fought with all her might. She lost her battle to pancreatic cancer at home in bed, surrounded by her loving family. She leaves behind a legacy and set the example of a true samaritan.
Born in Big Spring on Nov. 11, 1975, to Timothy Wayne Knox Sr. and Rita Annette Lipham Knox.
Jeannie attended grade school in Forsan and played saxophone for the Big Spring High School Band, Class of 1994. She completed her bachelor's degree specializing in social work, and did more for society than she ever imagined.
She was preceeded in death by her father Timothy Wayne Knox Sr.; and grandparents John and Ruby Knox, and Leslie and Rita Lipham.
Jeannie married her devoted husband, Richard Cox, on Jan. 1, 2000. It was crystal clear they were soulmates; their own perfect counterparts. She loved him beyond words, even though writing was a specialty of hers.
She is survived by her mother, Rita Annette Knox.
She also leaves behind five children, Monica Brown and husband Jared Brown, Blake Barnes and fiancé Ashly Klinger, Dylan Thom Cox, Gracie Dawn Cox, and Bobby Ray Cox. Also three grandchildren, Harper and Brynlee Brown, and Silas Barnes. Although these were her children, she had so many more. If you were a child in her life, you were her child; she loved you with everything she had and gave you everything she could. Whether it was a home cooked meal, the shirt from her back or a shoulder to cry on, she had it ready.
Her family was always first on her list and in her heart. Her siblings include Timothy Wayne Knox Jr. and wife Amanda Knox of Big Spring, Melissa Camarena and husband Leo Camarena of Carlsbad, N.M., and Tonya Knox and husband Daniel Kerr of Big Spring. Siblings by love include Tina Salinas and husband Steven Salinas of Big Spring, and Jaime McGallian and husband Justin McGallian of Abilene. Nieces and nephews include Ashlie Knox and Lila Knox, Timothy Evans and Apollo Dunlap, Isaac Camarena and Charlie Camarena, and Destiny Mills, Madison Currie, Cody Salinas, and Stevie Salinas.
Jeannie Cox was a true blessing in the lives of countless people. She inspired many souls to achieve their dreams while working full time, attending school, and keeping a loving household. Her smile was contagious and her laughter filled the room. No one was ever a stranger, only a new friend to help. She will be missed beyond measure.
