Cox, Martha (Richard)  
Martha (Richard) Cox DOVER - Martha (Richard) Cox, APRN, 70 of Dover, known by all who met her for her humble brilliance, boundless energy and kindness to all, passed away at her home on December 15th from cancer. Martha was born in Dover, on July 18, 1944, to Raymond and Jeannette (Renaud) Richard (both now deceased). She will be profoundly missed by her adoring husband and "pal" of 49 years, Paul R. Cox (Dover). Martha will also be lovingly remembered by her four devoted and grateful children and their spouses: Chris Cox and wife Andrea Thompson (Halifax, Nova Scotia), Matt Cox and wife Finola (Dover), Katy Cox and husband Jason Lucey (Dover), and Sarah Lavoie and husband Mike (Portsmouth). Martha truly enriched the lives of her 10 biggest fans, her grandchildren: Liam Cox, Joshua Lucey, Brendan Cox, Aidan Cox, Finnegan Cox, Tynan Lucey, Shane Cox, Ava Cox, Kate Lavoie and Madeleine Lavoie. Martha cherished many great laughs and memories with her sisters ("REMNA") and their spouses, by whom she will be deeply missed: Roberta Norris and husband Duane (Mexico), Elaine Richard and husband Donald Manguson (Tampa, Fla.), Natalie Wensley and husband Danford (Rochester) and Anne Paris and husband David (Manchester). Many nieces and nephews and their families will dearly miss their beloved "Aunt Martha." She will also be remembered fondly by countless friends and relatives from her life and work in the Dover area as well as Falmouth, Cape Cod, a place she treasured. Deeply respected as a tireless patient advocate, Martha's life was devoted to caring for family, friends and strangers alike. After graduating from the Sacred Heart School of Nursing in Manchester, she began her professional life as a registered nurse at Wentworth Douglass Hospital and took pride in her many years of caring for oncology and hematology patients. She was a member of Sigma Theta Tau, the International Nursing Honor Society. While raising her children and managing a busy household, Martha continued her education at UNH, earning her bachelor's degree Summa Cum Laude as well as her Master's degree in nursing to become a Nurse Practitioner. While working in the Women's Health department at UNH Health Services, she took great satisfaction in establishing trusting relationships with countless students and colleagues and embodied a holistic approach to treating and caring for her patients. In her "retirement", she continued to provide volunteer Nurse Practitioner services to patients at local community health agencies and Horne Street School. Martha's commitment to and enthusiasm for her profession was so paramount that she inspired future generations of medical professionals including her son, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and others to follow in her footsteps. Martha was a powerful force for positive change in the community and was a champion for not only her own, but for all children. She and friends were pioneers in the Mothers Against Drunk Driving movement in NH and were responsible for piloting Dover's safe and supervised overnight graduation celebrations, known as Project Graduation. With a beautiful soprano voice, she loved to sing, especially French Christmas carols. Martha loved to cook and was quick to whip up a homemade meal for those who entered her kitchen. She welcomed the challenge of creating delicious and nutritious food for friends and family. No dietary restrictions were too daunting for Martha. She also happily shared her culinary prowess with those who patronized the Dover Friendly Soup Kitchen. An avid competitor, Martha enjoyed cheering (loudly) at her children's, grandchildren's and friends' sporting events, much to the chagrin of opposing teams and referees. She was an athlete who participated in events like the Falmouth Road Race many times and even completed sprint triathlons to celebrate her 60th and 65th birthdays. She inspired myriad family members and friends to lace up their shoes in her life-long mission toward healthy living. A wake will be held on Sunday, December 21, 2014 from 3-6 p.m. at Tasker Funeral Home, 621 Central Ave., Dover. A funeral mass celebrating her life will be held on Monday, December 22, 2014 at 11 a.m. at St. Thomas More, 6 Madbury Rd., Durham. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations in Martha's memory to the Henry Law Park Playground Project, c/o The City of Dover, 288 Central Ave, Dover, N.H. 03820. As a lifelong Dover resident and someone who cared deeply about children, Martha was eager to see this innovative nature playground become a reality.
