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.
