COX HannaPosted: December 24th, 2013
APRIL 20, 1949 ~ DECEMBER 14, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of my dear wife & our dear mom, Hanna Cox, on Saturday, December 14, 2013 at St. Michaels Palliative Care Unit, at the age of 64 years, with her family by her side. Hanna was born April 20, 1949 in Nuremburg, Germany to Gerhard and Margarete Moch, the oldest of seven children. They immigrated to Canada in 1954, first residing in the Town of Coaldale and thereafter moved onto a farm in the Monarch area in 1962. She married the love of her life Don on December 5, 1969. Hanna and Don were blessed with three children – Quinton, Trisha and Breanne. One of her most joyous occasions was the birth of her dear grandson Kingston on November 14, 2011. Don and Hanna lived in the Park Lake area in the early years of their marriage, this being where they raised their family. Later they built Hannas dream home on the west side where many years of fun & laughter has been shared with family and friends. Hanna worked many years at Marshall Wells and then became a stay -at-home mom. Her kids were her pride and joy and she was the most amazing devoted parent. She instilled in her children to be hardworking, to be kind to all, to have fun and to enjoy every precious moment in life. Her greatest joy was her grandson Kingston whom she adored and just loved to cuddle, hug, kiss and play with him. Hanna loved knitting, sewing, gardening, camping, shopping, her time spent in their Havasu home, Vegas trips, “chocolate” but mostly enjoyed being with Don and spending time with Quinton, Trisha, Breanne, Kingston, family and friends. Her humour was extraordinary and she was so unselfish with her focus always on others around her. She was truly a special “angel” and no one was more sweet, generous, sincere, kind, thoughtful, loving, caring, gentle and patient. She dealt with her illnesses very courageously and there were never complaints of pain or suffering. Left with her memory is her loving husband Don, her precious children Quinton, Trisha & Breanne, her son-in-law Kostas, her precious grandson Kingston, her dear mom Margarete; her brothers and sisters – Peter & Linda Moch,, Helen & Joe Meszaros, Harry & Sue Moch, May Olshaski, Debbie Byrne and Robert Moch along with all their children & grandchildren; her brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws – Monty Cox, Kathryn & Leslie Delparte, Sheldon & Pat Cox, Sharon Cox, Karen & Jim Bagshaw, Gail & Bill Toth and Lee Cox along with all their children and grandchildren. Hanna was predeceased by her father-in-law Lemond Cox, mother-in-law Genneal Cox, her nephew Duane Moch, her Dad Gerhard Moch and her brother-in-law Greg Olshaski. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects between 12:30pm- 1:00pm on Saturday, December 21, 2013 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 4th Street South, Lethbridge; a Funeral Service will follow at 1:00pm, with Reverend Glenda Wert officiating. Hanna will be so sadly missed and so lovingly remembered by all her family and friends. We love you so very much our beautiful “Hanna” “Mom” and there are no words to describe how much we will miss you. You certainly were the best wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, daughter, sister, sister-in -law, aunt and friend anyone could wish for. We will miss your smile and your cheerfulness, your love and your guidance. Our beautiful memories of you will remain deep in our hearts forever and our tears will remind us of our special love for you.
