Joy Faul Cox Obituary
JOY FAUL COX, Long-time Valley resident Joy Faul Cox passed Friday, Sept. 19, 2014, at the age of 86. She had been dealing with the ravages of Alzheimer's Disease for many years. A native of Bremerton, Washington, Mrs. Cox was active in many community organizations including the Daughters of the British Empire, Colonial Dames, Ramona Shrine Club, and Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd. Born October 13, 1927 in Bremerton, Washington, her father and mother, Harry and Violet Faul, had emigrated from Canada to Washington State in the early 1910s. After her father's death in 1931, her mother combined their household with that of her sister, Evelyn, who had by then married Fred Lindholm, a merchant sea captain. She grew up with Evelyn's son, Fred Jr., as a virtual brother. Joy Faul met Thomas Cox, a Stanford law student, while working as a fashion model in San Francisco. They married in April, 1951, and relocated to San Jacinto in order to be closer to Tom's family. After passing the Bar, Tom worked for the Riverside County District Attorney's Office, later establishing a thriving law practice in Hemet; while Joy concentrated on their growing family, to eventually number six children. In 1956, the family moved into the large residence on Mayberry Avenue which they would occupy for the next fifty years. Pre-deceased by her youngest daughter, Mary Ellen Egbert of Windsor, CA, Mrs. Cox is survived by her husband, Thomas M. Cox of Hemet; five children: Cherie Cox-Frye of San Diego; Caroline Ulle of La Mesa, CA; Thomas H.
