Jean Hester Cox, 94, passed away on Monday, November 13th. She was born August 30,1923 in Belews Creek, NC to Virgil and Byrd Hester. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 62 years, John Cox; her son, John Martin Cox; and her siblings, Evelyn Burr, Mildred Mitchell, Robert Hester, Ruth Hester, and William Hester. She was a homemaker, school volunteer, proud poll worker and faithful member of Hickory Ridge United Methodist Church. Jean was a kind and generous person who taught her three children to put others first. She loved family vacations at the beach, spending time with her grandchildren and ironing. She especially loved reading, causing some of her children and grandchildren to become nerdy bookworms.
She is survived by her daughters Anna McAllister (Craig) and Susan Kincaid (Harold) and six grandchildren: Ryan Brooks (Jenny), Andrew McAllister, Caitlin McAllister, Beth Kincaid Nieman (JR), Emily Kincaid and LeeAnna Kincaid.
Our family would like to thank the hardworking staff of Rose Tara Plantation for the loving care they provided our mother. We also appreciate the services provided by Mountain Valley Hospice and Palliative Care who helped ease her transition from life with dignity and grace.
Our mother was an inspiration and will Iive on inside all of those who loved her.
Private graveside services will be held Saturday, November 18th at Hickory Ridge United Methodist Church.
