“Weep with those that weep”Romans 12:15


 Barbara Helen Cox

November 11, 1925 – July 28, 2009


  “A peaceful hour in which to depart.” That is what we often pray for, and the Lord blessed our sister Barbara beautifully, in both life and in death. Barbara laid down for an afternoon nap on Tuesday, and soon after, quietly went on to be with the Lord! Born on November 11, 1925, she was 83 years young! She was born in Walters (south of Lawton) but grew up in Perkins, Oklahoma. After high school Barbara went on to become a hairdresser and had her own business in Perkins. In 1955 she began dating John Cox who had moved here from Wichita to work in his father’s electric business. They married on January 14th, 1956 and for 39 years she handled the business side of their own electric business which was very successful. Barbara enjoyed her home and her beautiful flower gardens. For a number of years she participated in the annual Iris Festival and one year was chosen as the Festival Queen. She also enjoyed quilting and traveling. She and her sister Rose made two trips to Europe together and an Hawaiian cruise. About three years ago, John and Barbara and their entire family celebrated their golden anniversary with a cruise throughout the gulf of Mexico.

Barbara went about quietly doing good. She was an active and faithful Christian and a long-time member of the Hartford Church of Christ. A servant who volunteered many times for various activities including preparing and serving meals for those who were dealing with the death of a loved one, Barbara was multi-talented, gracious, gentle and full of wisdom, and a woman who stayed up with the times.

She is survived by her husband John of the home, and two sons: Dan Andrade of Portland, OR and Daryl Cox of Irving, TX, and one daughter, Johnna Ikehorn of Wichita. She also enjoyed her nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She will be deeply missed because for so long Barbara has blessed all of us with her friendship and Christian love.
