Alice D. Cox

BRIGHAM CITY, UT — Alice Dowdy Cox died at a Brigham City Utah Nursing Center suddenly, peacefully and mercifully Saturday morning, October 4, 2008. Alice resided in the care center suffering from advanced Alzheimer's disease that first expressed itself during recovery from a broken hip a year earlier.
Alice was born in Greensboro, North Carolina as Alice Pearl Dowdy to A. T. Dowdy and Evelyn Horner. At the age of 19, she married Lemuel Alfred Cox and this union gave two daughters, Teresa Ann and Alice Lynne. Alfred died in 1963 after which Alice moved to Tremonton, Utah where she resided the rest of her life.
Alice rose above an early traumatic life to become a strong and independent woman.
Alice went to work at Thiokol Aerospace in 1969 where she became a supervisor and after 20 years enjoyed a comfortable retirement. She enjoyed herself with friends, needlework, crocheting, reading, horseback riding and camping.
Alice is survived by her daughters, Teresa Engstrom of Tremonton, Utah and Alice Lynne Allred (Dr. James Allred) of Fort Collins, Colorado. She enjoyed four grandchildren, Shanen Davis Allred of Salt Lake, Terri Ann Travitz of Torrington, Wyoming, Michael John Travitz of Wyoming and Raymond Mark of North Carolina. Alice leaves four great grandchildren. She leaves three sisters, Frances Miller and Page Williams of Greensboro and Rachel Mitchell of Burlington. She is survived by many nieces and nephews in North Carolina where a Greensboro memorial service is planned.
Alice was preceded in death by her brother, Wade Dowdy and her sister, Betty Hammer.
Contributions may be made to the Alzheimer's Association which provided us great help and understanding.
