Lois Ellen Cox
Our Heavenly Father saw fit to call to His heavenly home Lois Ellen Cox, youngest child and only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George L. Cox of this city.
Lois Ellen was born April 14, 1921, and passed away Dec. 16, 1931. She was a patient sufferer to the last, always thoughtful, cheerful, thinking of others first.
We cannot say that she is dead.
She is just away.
With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand
She has wandered into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be since she lingers there;
So think of her faring on--as dear
In love of There as the love of Here;
Think of her still as the same--and say
She is not dead, she is just away.
She leaves to mourn her father, mother and one brother, George Jr., with hosts of friends.
