Ann Winslow Cox, wife of Joe Ed Cox and mother of Mary Ann Cox, passed away in Houston TX at the age of 88. She was an elementary school teacher at Enfield Academy in Whitakers for 27 years of her 40 year teaching career. She is survived by her daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter and many nieces and nephews who will remember her with love.
Mrs Cox was an integral part of Enfield Academy. I never had her as a teacher but like those who did, I loved her. She supported all the school’s extracurricular activities with all her heart and was well respected by all who knew her. So sorry for your loss Mary Ann
I never had Mrs. Cox as a teacher, but I know she was a great one. Mary Ann and family, you are in my prayers during this time.
I so remember Mrs Cox at EA❣️ Even remember exactly what the classroom looked like to this day. She was one the sweetest, kindest teachers i ever had. Will never forget EA and all the good memories and friendships made there. Rest easy Mrs Cox and love to your family
Mary Ann Your mom could do it all, teach effectively, put on plays, paint the scenery, ride her bike from Scotland Neck to Enfield Academy.Spending time at Myrtle Beach with our children and playing tennis made good memories .
Mary Ann, I am so sorry for your family’s loss. I remember your mom so well. What a wonderful teacher she was, touching so many lives❤️
Mrs. Cox was a wonderful person and teacher! I remember her bright smile and the love she had for her family, her students, and Enfield Academy. Prayers for her family.
Mrs. Cox taught me in 4th grade (I think it was 1981). She was an amazing teacher who was fun but also professional & strict when her students needed it the most. Mrs. Cox certainly laid the groundwork for my education, for that, I’ll always be grateful. I can see her now in the corner classroom at EA, writing away on the chalkboard on those old hardwood floors. I can’t remember her in anything but a skirt & blouse or a dress. I don’t think I ever saw her in pants. It seems like a lifetime ago & I guess that it is, 38 years ago! Mrs. Ann Cox was truly one of a kind, a gem of an educator. I believe she cared for each and every student & wished those she taught immense success! Teachers like her a few and far between in this day and time. I feel very blessed to have been one of the many young people, whose lives were positively impacted by spending a year under Mrs. Cox’s authority! I know she will be missed by many, especially her family. I will keep her loved ones in my thoughts and prayers while they grieve! May you find peace in knowing she made a difference in the world.
Mrs. Cox was my 3rd grade teacher. What a sweet lady she was. My prayers are with the family during this time.
So many happy memories. I’m so very sorry. What a special lady. Sending love to Mary Ann and her family.
Worked with her many years at EA. She also taught my daughter, Terri. A really nice lady & great dedicated teacher. Remember fond memories. Prayers for comfort & peace to the family.
