Obituary for Sue Ellen Cox

Sue Ellen Cox, aged 93, passed peacefully into her Heavenly home on August 30, 2019. Born
Sue Ellen Morgan on January 29, 1926 to Pearl Lee and Charlie Robert Davis Morgan, she was
the widow of Lawrence Edward “Shorty” Cox, who preceded her in death in 1995.
Sue Ellen’s hands were rarely still. As well as sewing for the public, she loved to embroider
linens, crochet, sew curtains and clothing, and paint furniture. Her daughters and
granddaughters inherited her tenacity, work ethic, curiosity, and craftiness. In recent years, she
took great pleasure in feeding the wild turkeys that crossed her property, working word search
books and jigsaw puzzles in cold weather. In warm weather, she didn’t let a stray stick lay long
in her beautiful yard.
Those who knew her well will recall that Sue Ellen was quietly brilliant, fiercely independent,
and absolutely devoted to her family. She was valedictorian of her graduating class, and worked
at Defore and Jantzen for a time. However, the role of homemaker was the role in which she
took the most pride. She cared deeply for her siblings, daughters, grandchildren, and neighbors
and would occasionally bless them with the most amazing fried apple pies.
Sue Ellen is survived by a daughter - Brenda Cox Sheriff (Jackie) of Seneca; granddaughters –
Lori Martin (Mark) of Six Mile, Kellie Gambino (Chris) of Mansfield, Georgia, Amie White
(Chris) of Seneca; great-grandchildren – Macie Ellen White, Ben White, Madeline Gambino,
Jack Gambino, Kaitlyn Stewart, & Hunter Martin. And several special nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and doting husband, she is preceded in death by her eldest daughter,
Sandra Faye Cox Smith; a great-granddaughter, Isabel Luca Gambino; her sisters, Mary Edna
Morgan and Etrulia Morgan Nichols; and her brother, Zetna Lee Morgan.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Cottingham Hospice House, c/o Oconee Memorial
Hospital Foundation, 298 Memorial Drive, Seneca, SC 29672.
