Mavis Corrine Cox, 83 of Willis, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, March 2, 2021. She was born on May 22, 1937 to the late Clova Bolt Dalton. She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 58 years, Warren “Bud” Cox; granddaughter, Misty Jo Cox; brother, Venston Dalton and sisters, Mabel Boyd and Lareda Quesenberry.

“Rean” was the oldest of 9 siblings. She was born and raised in the Buffalo Mountain community, which she dearly loved. She was a loving wife and devoted mother to her children. When asked what made her happy, she said “Family”. Rean also opened up her home and heart to her many extended family and friends throughout her life. Welcoming everyone with kindness, open arms and a wonderful smile, those moments will be missed by all who knew her.
