Kylie Anne Cox, our beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter, auntie, niece, cousin and friend went home to be with Heavenly Father on December 7th, 2014; a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  Kylie was born on June 4th, 1993 in Mesa, AZ. When she was just 4 years old Kylie began to suffer from seizures and as a result, would battle many hardships throughout her life. Though Kylie’s life was filled with physical adversity, her spirit remained strong and she became a shining example to all who would come to know her. Kylie’s life was filled with love and happiness and at just the tender age of 21, she touched more lives than most touch throughout their entire lifetime. Though Kylie loved to sing and dance, her favorite thing to do was to give heartfelt hugs to everyone she knew. We would often say that nobody has experienced a hug until they have had a Kylie hug. Kylie’s life, though short, was lived to the fullest and she has been the inspiration behind many miracles during the course of 21 years. To know Kylie was to love Kylie and perhaps the greatest miracle of all was the change that Kylie had upon our hearts. In life and in death, we remember her example and have become more loving and more forgiving, moving ever closer to becoming like our Savior Jesus Christ.  May we all remember her love, a love that can only be described as the pure love of Christ.

Kylie is preceded in death by her grandfathers DuWayne Cook, ElMyrrh Cox, and Jess Jensen and her grandmother Adele Jensen. Kylie is survived by her parents Vance and Sherry Cox, her sister Lanie Hall (Jon) and their three children Kendele, Lexie and Ryker, her brother Brett Cox (Megan), and her sister Courtney Cox.  She is also survived by her grandmother Leone Cook.

We would like to express our heartfelt love and appreciation to all of the wonderful nurses at the Scottsdale Osborn ICU who took care of Kylie during her final days. We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to Kylie’s neurologists Dr. Troester and Dr. Kerrigan for the many years of support they have given to Kylie and our family. Finally, we would like to say thank you to all of Kylie’s amazing friends and teachers who have supported her throughout her life. We love all of you and we will forever be grateful for the love you gave to our beautiful Kylie.

We would like to invite everyone to share with our family as we pay our respects to Kylie and celebrate her amazing life.

  • Norm and Wendy Maxfield

    I was just thinking about you and your family today and wanted to call and talk to you. So, as I was trying to find a number to call because the number I have was not in service, I ran into this obituary and my heart is aching for you. We love you so dearly and cherish our friendship with you and your beautiful family. May the Lord’s choicest blessings be with you to comfort and sustain you!!! Big hugs from all of us!

  • To Ms. Cox family, I’m very sorry for your loss. It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from Jehovah God’s promises in the Bible at Revelation 21: 3, 4 and John 5: 28, 29 that there will soon be a time when there will be no more death, and we will see our dead loved ones again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
