Helen Cox

In Loving Memory

Cox, Helen Elizabeth (nee Lomax)

December 8, 1936 - May 10, 2024

Helen Cox, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister-in-law and friend to many, passed away peacefully at the age of 87 on Friday, May 10, surrounded by her loving family. Born on December 8, 1936, Helen lived a life filled with love, compassion, and dedication to her family and friends.

Helen was the devoted wife of Charles (Chuck) Cox for an incredible 68 years, a partnership that stood as a testament to enduring love and commitment. Together, they built a beautiful life, filled with cherished memories and shared experiences.

As a mother, Helen was the epitome of strength and selflessness, raising eight children with boundless love and unwavering support. She was a beacon of guidance, offering wisdom and encouragement to her children as they navigated life’s challenges and celebrated its triumphs.  Helen is preceded in death by her son Darren Cox, her daughter Dawn Cox, and her siblings Ottis, Virginia, Rita, Jean and Jody.  Helen is survived by her children Kim Cox, Donna Cox, Steve (Sandy) Cox, Stacy (Bill) Brundick, Michael Cox (Christine), Laurie Cox.

Helen’s love extended far beyond her immediate family. She adored her 12 grandchildren (Stephanie (Matt), Malorie (Craig), Brett (Liz), Jamie (Scott), Alexa and her mother Becky, Mazikeen, Emma, Andrew, Jessica, Joshua, Kyle, Allison) and 7 great-grandchildren (Ella, Maddy, Teddy, Haddy, Dean, Kai, Ashlynn) delighting in their laughter and cherishing every moment spent together. Her home was always open, welcoming all with open arms and a warm heart, especially her closest friends, Brian & Donna Bennett, Danny & Sue Dixon, Ronnie Fisher and the late David Fisher.

A woman of deep intellect and curiosity, Helen had a passion for psychology that defined much of her life. She was a voracious observer, constantly seeking to understand the intricacies of the human mind and behavior. Her insights and understanding enriched the lives of those around her, offering comfort and guidance to friends and family alike.

But above all else, Helen will be remembered for her profound love of people. She had a gift for making everyone feel valued and heard, and her kindness touched the lives of all who knew her. Whether through a listening ear, a comforting embrace, or a word of encouragement, Helen had an uncanny ability to uplift others and make the world a brighter place.

Though she may no longer walk beside us, Helen’s spirit will live on in the countless lives she touched and the memories she created. Her legacy of love, compassion, and understanding will continue to inspire all who knew her.  She will be deeply missed and forever remembered with love.

SERVICES: A celebration of Helen’s life will be held at KUTIS AFFTON CHAPEL (10151 Gravois Rd 63123) on Sunday, May 19, from 1-3, where family and friends will gather to honor her memory and share stories of her remarkable life.  A memorial service will immediately follow.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Hospital in Helen’s name.

  1. I love you Ghandi! It sucks you had to go too. I hope you Uncle D Aunt Shelly and my Dad are having a great time and keeping an eye on us. Too many gone way too soon. Who is going to match my attitude and understand my sass? The others don’t get it.

  2. My Mom loved her road trips with my Dad and their friends, all around the country. She also enjoyed her weekend getaways with her daughter’s to shop, laugh and enjoy some girl time for many years. She and her sisters great dancers especially together. They could dance the imperial like professionals. She loved holding court on the front porch of our childhood home, with everyone who participate. Those are memories I will never forget.

  3. Our collective hearts are heavy with sympathy. Please accept our most heartfelt condolences.

  4. My mom and I were 20 years apart in age. Sometimes we were more friends than parent -child but always there was love. We told each other secrets & kept them as we promised, til we died. I hope she knew how much our relationship made me who I am. I told her a lot that last week.

  5. My condolences to Cox Family. Suzy and I loved our lunches and family get togethers with Helen, Chuck and the rest of the Cox Clan. Please excuse my absence during visitation and funeral. I am currently out of town. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
