She loved to cook, travel, host family gatherings, to knit, and do puzzles, but she most cherished time spent with her beloved grandchildren and family. She will always be remembered as a kind, quick-witted person, and will be missed by all.

Along with her parents, she was predeceased by her loving husband of 56 years, Thomas Cox.

She is survived by children, Julie Michaud of Raymond and Michael Cox of Windham; four grandchildren; brother, Ronald Lachance Jr. of Nevada; and several nieces and nephews.
