Evelyn "Darlene" Cox, 82, of Washington, went to her heavenly home in the early morning hours Wednesday, September 20, 2017.
Darlene was born March 20, 1935, in Edwardsport, to the late Howard Lewis and Mildred Belma Lewis-Gregory (Chambers). She was wed to the late George L. Cox on Nov. 17, 1954, and they shared nearly 55 amazing years together before his passing in April 2009.
Darlene was a 1954 Washington High School graduate. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a former primary teacher, and a member of the Relief Society, and also past Job's Daughter. Darlene was a member of the Red Hat Society of River Oaks and enjoyed the activities that they took part in. The most important part of Darlene's life were her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. They were the apple of her eye, and she cherished their times together. She also enjoyed fishing, mushroom hunting, and the outdoors with her family.

Cox, Shannon R. Strange, Dustin L. Cox, Erica L. Cox, Malinda K. Cox, and Derrick L. Walker; and 11 great-grandchildren who were very dear to her heart.
