SPELTER -- Billie Anne Cox, née Short, 61, of Spelter, passed away on November 14, 2019, surrounded by her family, at her residence. She was born January 23, 1958, in Clarksburg, WV, the daughter of the late Howard William “Bill" Short and H. Christine (Moore) Erwin.
Billie is survived by her husband, Flawn Gaylord Cox, of Spelter; sister Deborah Kay Hanning of Clarksburg; brothers, Michael Dan Short, James William Short, and Chase Andrew Short, all of Clarksburg; children: Shannon DeWitt of Bridgeport, Aron Hollar of Clarksburg, Matthew Cox of Fairmont, Vance Cox of Dacono, CO and Victoria (Cox) Puccio of Woodridge, NY; grandchildren, Kateyn Hollar, Ashley (Hollar) Kelly, Maddisyn Hollar, Emily Hollar all of Clarksburg, Dalighla Cox, Landon Brown, and Joani Cox all of Dacono, CO; Raylie DeWitt of Bridgeport, and Joseph Puccio of Woodridge, NY; two great-grandsons, Emmett and Liam Kelly; and many cherished nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
In addition to her parents, Billie was preceded in death by her two brothers, Howard William “Bub" Short and Justin William Short.
Billie treasured her family and adored spending time with her grandchildren. She was fun-loving and loved life; blessing all the people she met. She was a prayer-warrior for her family and friends and her love of the Lord and faithful servitude aided her positivity throughout her battle. Her door was always opened to anyone who needed love, support, encouragement, and, oftentimes, a safe, secure place of respite. Her ability to see love, joy, and bestow mercy on all of God’s children was unrivaled and her memory will live on through her loving, gracious spirit. Billie would want her memory to be honored and her voyage to heaven celebrated.
Billie would not want us to mourn, but to celebrate her return to the Lord; and let us all be comforted by His Word: Psalm 5: 11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. In the truly selfless spirit that defined Billie, she chose to donate her body to the WVU Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center to further their research in hopes of finding a cure for this devastating disease. Her family will find comfort and peace that surpasses all understanding knowing that no disease will transcend with Billie into the arms of the Lord.
Her family will hold a memorial service to celebrate the amazing and courageous life of Billie at Jewel City Church, 511 Jewel City Boulevard, Meadowbrook, WV, November 22, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. The family would like to thank the wonderful, extraordinary, and loving friends/caregivers, Karen Lindsay and Michelle Hibbs for their devotion and support.
