Mary K. (Hougland) Cox, 82, returned to her heavenly home on Tuesday, July 9, 2019. Her devotion to her family and her firm belief in God made her the person whom everyone loved.
Mrs. Cox was born on April 23, 1937 to the late Kenneth Hougland and Hildreth Hougland (Everett) in Covington.
She was blessed with a devoted husband, Dwight Cox and a lovingfamily. Mr. and Mrs. Cox were married on Sept. 15, 1957 at a little country church in Covington. She was dedicated to helping her husband on the farm for twenty-two years and raising their three daughters.
Mrs. Cox was an active member of the Congregational Christian Church in Darlington since 1966. Her love for music led her to many years of playing the piano and keyboard for the praise team. She kept the congregation hopping, in more ways than one! She loved life and her spunk along with her sense of humor left a lasting impression to all that knew her. She will be dearly missed by her loved ones, who celebrate the fact that she is at peace with her creator.
Survivors include her husband, Dwight; her daughters, Camilla Sawick,
Connie (Ken) Lee and Carla (Fred) Earl; her eight grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her brother Gene Hougland; her parents; and her son-in-law, David Sawick.
A funeral service is planned for Wednesday, July 17 at the Congregational Christian Church in Darlington with burial at Green Lawn Cemetery in Darlington. Friends and Family may call from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with the service to follow immediately after.
