Diana COX


February 6, 2014

Diana was born in Gadsby on December 5, 1929. She was the second eldest of 8 children – four boys and four girls. She has been like a second mother to the family. She was married to Lawrence Herzog while still a teen and they had 5 children – four sons and one daughter. She was no stranger to pain, losing son Duane in 1973, and daughter Debbie in 1995, both in their young years. After the marriage to Lawrence dissolved, she went to Olds College where she took a Nursing Assistant course and worked in the Stettler Hospital for many years. She formed many friendships while working there which have lasted through the years. She married Bert Cox and they continued to remain in Stettler. Upon her retirement she was involved in many activities including line dancing and community volunteering. The ‘coffee ladies’ as we refer to them, filled her latter years with friendship, social activity and fun. We all will miss her sense of humour, her compassion, her wisdom and the fun she brought to everything. She fought a brave battle with cancer for over seven years with optimism and determination. Although she is sorely missed, we are happy that she is at peace at last. She is survived by her children: Doug Cox, wife Marg, Deanna Wilcox, husband Marv, Dan Herzog, Dale Herzog, wife Dianne and David Herzog, wife Margo; her siblings: Pat Bean, partner Kaye, John Murphy, wife Geni, Doris Hayne, Leam Murphy, wife Cecile, Dan Murphy, wife Winnifred, Pat Kiesal, husband Len and Lois Thorp, husband Chad; she is also survived by numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Funeral services were held at the Heartland Chapel of Stettler Funeral Home on Monday, February 10, 2014 at 2:00 PM with Chad Thorp officiating. Interment was held at Lake View Cemetery with Honorary Pallbearers being Ann DeGraffe, Frances Hallett, Noreen Woolsey and Marguerite Oakes and Active Pallbearers were her nephews: Carl Hayne, Len Hayne, Greg Kenny, Randy DeLong, Patrick Glenday and Lowell Murphy. Family and friends gathered for a time of fellowship and a luncheon in the Heartland Reception Centre.Memorial donations may be made in Diana’s name to the Alberta Cancer Foundation for the Red Deer Clinic or to the Red Deer Regional Hospital Foundation for the Patient Comfort and Care Cart.
