Mary Kathryn Cox
Mary Kathryn Cox went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 11, 2014 after courageously living with pancreatic cancer for over two years. She was 57. Mary was born on November 10, 1956 in Hawthorne, CA to James and Kathryn Reinhardt. She attended Seaside Elementary, graduated from South Torrance High School in 1974, took courses at El Camino Community College and graduated from California State University, Dominguez Hills in 2008. She married Thomas John Cox in 1978. She is survived by her husband and their four children: Amy (Jeff), Katie (Jeremy), Emily (Michael), and Kevin (Colleen); five grandsons: Tommy, Nicolas, Kenny, Owen, and J.P.; and was predeceased by her granddaughter, Leah. Mary took joy in staying home to care for her children, finishing her college education, volunteering at church and in the community, serving with Bible Study Fellowship, and opening her home in hospitality. She loved the beach, walking, hiking, biking, traveling, going to plays, tailgating at UCLA football games (Go Bruins!), and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She loved her husband, Tom, and considered him a great gift, a wonderful husband, father, friend, and brother in Christ. A service will be held at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Redondo Beach on Saturday, April 19 at 11am. A reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Juna Amagara (www.amagara.org) and Watts Power House Food (www.wattspowerhousefood.org).
