Winnie was born June 13, 1924, in Earle, S.C., to the late Thomas Alton and Effie Wheeler Cox. A full-time mother, she served as room-mother, school nurse, Cub Scout and Girl Scout leader. Later in life she worked part-time in the U.S.C. Bookstore and for Eison’s Florist. She loved having her children and their families over Sundays for a home-cooked meal. Her passion was growing flowers, especially roses, and serving others. Throughout her extended illness she kept a joyful spirit and never complained.
She was a faithful member of Wesley Memorial Church where she sang in the choir, was a member of the Friendship Sunday School Class and enjoyed her church circle. Winnie looked forward to the annual church bazaar where she contributed her time and talents.
Surviving are her daughter, Faye Pantsari (Eric), son, John (Frances) and two brothers, Junior and Carlisle Cox. She was blessed with seven grandchildren: Matthew (Cindy) and Mark Pantsari, Bryson (Sally) and Tyler (Heather) Tucker, Mandy (Greg) Abrams, Tripp and Christopher Register and nine great-grandchildren: Ansley, Keller, and Arden Pantsari, Anna and Ryan Tucker and Camden, Landon, Sarah Manning and Hannah Katherine Abrams. Winnie was predeceased by her husband, Bill, and daughter, Peggy Tucker.
The family would like to express their appreciation to Harmony Care Hospice and NHC Lexington for their care and attention.
