A celebration of life service for Edna Nadine Cox, Nadine, or best known as Granny Lou, 93, West Plains, Missouri, will be held at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, January 22, 2020 in the Rose Chapel at Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.
Nadine passed away at 5:16 a.m., Monday, January 20, 2020, at her home.
She was born January 5, 1927, at Enid, Oklahoma, to Harry Smith and Belle McCart Smith. On September 22, 1942, she was married at West Plains, to Russell Cox, who preceded her in death July 28, 2015. To this union, two children were born, Beverly Duggins of West Plains and Howard Cox of Seneca, South Carolina. She was an active member of First General Baptist Church of West Plains until her health prevented her from attending. Nadine loved to sing duets at church with her daughter, Beverly. She was very proud to be a lifetime member of Capital Regional Medical Foundation of volunteers in Jefferson City, Missouri, where she and Russell volunteered for twenty-two years. Nadine never met a stranger and was loved by all who knew her. Anytime a grandchild stopped by to give Granny Lou a hug, her day was made.
She is survived by her daughter, Beverly Duggins and husband, Johnnie; her son, Howard Cox and wife, Connie; three grandsons, Shaun Duggins and wife, Andrea, West Plains, David Cox and wife, Jessica and Michael Cox and wife, Chrissy, Anderson, South Carolina; thirteen great-grandchildren, Taylor, Tyler, Macie, Mia and Tayt Duggins of West Plains, Sophia, Kellet, Nathan, Richard, Mary-Eva-Nadine, Mattie-Miller, Whit and Catron Cox of South Carolina; one great-great-granddaughter, Mavery Lou Duggins, West Plains; one sister, Norma Jackson; brother-in-law, Harold Bennett; sister-in-law, Mary Ann Feldman; and a host of nieces and nephews that she loved very much.
Her parents, husband and two sisters, Geraldine Holbert and Faye Bennett, preceded her in death.
Visitation will be held from 10:00 until 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, at Robertson-Drago Funeral Home. Burial will be in the Howell Memorial Park Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to Beyond Type 1, Juvenile Diabetes Research or Hospice Compassus and may be left at Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.
