Margie (Brazier) Cox, 92, of Mt. Vernon, Indiana passed away peacefully at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Doris and Mitch Barker, surrounded by her family on January 30, 2020.

Margie Mildred Brazier was born on February 4, 1927 in Illinois. Her parents were Bertis and Sara Catherine (Davis) Brazier. Her parents died when she was young and her only brother, Charles Brazier, was killed on September 19, 1944 in the war. Margie had some rough years growing up without her family.

Margie married Leslie “Les” Cox on October 4, 1942 and was blessed with seven sons and two daughters. Margie loved to read books and she loved the Lord.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Les; two sons, Charles and Steve Cox; her daughter Rita Denning; daughter-in-laws, Karen Ann Cox, Linda Sue Cox, Linda Cox Williams, and Anita Cox Garcia and a grandson Steve Cox.

Vernon, and Terry Cox of Mt. Vernon, a son-in-law, Mike Denning of Mt. Vernon; 22 Grandchildren; 54 Great Grandchildren; 10 Great great Grandchildren and a very close, caring and loving friend, Eileen McGennis.
