OBITUARY: Emery County Progress Thursday, June 17, 2004
Our beloved wife, mother, and friend was taken from us May 18, 2004. Born in Price, to Calvin and JoAnn Peacock Cox on Sept. 6, 1962.
She married Kelly Kimber on July 10, 1981 in the Manti Temple. They have two children Brady (21), and Maree (17) who were the joy of her life.
She spent much of her childhood in Moab where she loved the hot summer days and swimming in the pool. She graduated from Carbon High School where she ran on the track team. She learned the value of hard work by working for her father’s construction company. She attended college at the College of Eastern Utah where she was a cheerleader and homecoming queen. She loved to cheer and that spirit never left her.
She gave so much and expected so little in return. She loved her family and the gospel more than anything else. She was a dedicated mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. Her life was driven by principles and she never varied from them. She was faithful in every aspect of her life and remained true to the end. If ever a person endured to the end, it was she. Her life was filled with trials but she used them to refine her rather than make her bitter. Her favorite mottos were: “I may bend, but I won’t break,ö “you can’t hurt steelö and “If Betty Crocker doesn’t do it, neither do I.ö (She had others, but they can’t be repeated here.) She truly was as strong as steel, but then again, she was the daughter of Calvin Cox.
Through her adversity she learned how to forgive and genuinely offered love to everyone around her. She will be remembered for her wonderful personality, sense of humor and the many talents she had. She loved life, but was never more happy than when spending time with her family and encouraging them to achieve their dreams.
She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in various callings and gave of her time and talents to the work of the Lord. She had an active interest in the world around her and served in the PTA and other community events.
She loved to dance and be around people. She was blessed with so many skills. She could put in a sprinkling system or an air conditioner one day, then make a flower arrangement and decorate a cake for a wedding the next. She was amazing. She loved to sing and her favorite instrument was playing the radio.
She is survived by husband Kelly, children, Brady and Maree, (Riverton). Siblings: Paul and Detra Cox (Moab), Keith and Rachel Cox, (Spring Glen), Catherine Cox (Layton), Helen and Michael McCandless, (Huntington) and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by parents Calvin and JoAnn Cox.
We love you, Melody. We miss you! Our thoughts and prayers are with you until we meet again.
