Abigail Anne Cox

Altoona

Abigail Anne Cox, age 18, passed away Friday, March 10, 2017, at Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines.

Abbey was born November 20, 1998, in Des Moines, Iowa. She attended South East Polk High School and had been accepted at DMACC, and dreamed of becoming an early elementary educator. She worked at Altoona Kids World and loved the children and her job. She had a special talent for connecting with special needs kids. Abbey was involved in Best Buddies Program and People PE since junior high school, and would have started earlier if it had been allowed. She loved animals, especially large dogs, and her dogs, Chance and Max held a special place in her heart. She was very creative and had a strong artistic side. Abbey was up on the latest technology, and was interested in photography, drawing, and painting. She loved life and dreamed of one day owning her dream car, a Ford F150.

Abbey is survived by her mother, Marla Cox and sister, Mackenzie Cox of Altoona; her father, Greg Cox (and his wife, Lisa) and step-siblings, Larkin and Jaylee Christy of Kellogg; her grandfather, Willis Cox of Carlisle; her beloved dogs, Chance and Max; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and other extended family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Helen and Robert Parker, and Marian Cox; great-grandmother, Mildred Madden; and her uncle, Phil Davis.

Visitation will be from 5:30 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, March 15, 2017, at Community of Christ Church, 1645 Pennsylvania Ave, Des Moines. Funeral service will begin at 10 a.m., Thursday, March 16, 2017, also at the church, with Minister Vincent Lewis presiding. Burial will follow at Altoona Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the family for a future designation.
