COX: Reitta K. of London

Posted by on December 6, 2018

COX, Reitta K…
Reitta K. (nee Ellis) Cox (99) at PeopleCare Oakcrossing, London, Ontario. Surrounded in spirit and in truth by the love and support of many family members, friends and loved ones. Predeceased by her husband, Reverend George Cox (2011) who was the love of her life for 68 years; by her son Sterling Victor Cox (1997) (Margaret); and by her siblings Sterling, Frances and Murray; Mother of Katheleen Ellis (Kathryn Forester). Grandmother of Richard Cox (Siân) and Suzanne Uren. Great-grandmother of Zachary, Emma and Luke Cox, and Timothy and Jonathan Uren. She was also beloved aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Reitta graduated from Essex Ontario District High School, was very active in her church and a Brownie Leader before entering the Salvation Army Theological College in Toronto. She graduated in 1941 and after serving churches in Wingham and Dunnville she married Captain George Cox in 1943. Together they ministered in Listowel, Brockville, Toronto and Cobourg before leaving for South Africa in 1949 with their 2 children to do missionary work. In Johannesburg she was in charge of a young men’s hostel and also worked as the Salvation Army’s court worker assisting women attending the courts (many of them sex workers with alcohol and addiction issues) and finding them shelter and employment. In Cape Town she actively participated in and supported all aspects of the ministerial requirements of the churches served by her husband. She also worked with child welfare services. After 20 years Reitta returned to Canada with her family and continued to support her husband in several pastorates. Living in Essex in retirement she remained active in church work.

Music was always a great part of her life and she formed Ladies Vocal Trios whenever possible. At Corunna United Church an LP record was made, selling hundreds of copies (all proceeds were donated to missionary work). Keeping in touch with family and friends was very important to her and writing letters was a pleasure. After George’s death she remained active at PeopleCare, participating in residents’ councils and committees until failing health required her to curtail her involvements. She and George were among the first residents of PeopleCare and during her years there she befriended many of the staff and residents regaling them with stories about life in South Africa and providing a wise and loving “listening ear.” Appreciation is expressed to the wonderful staff of PeopleCare for their thoughtful care of both George and Reitta in their final years.

Memorial donations can be sent to Colborne Street United Church, Essex United Church, 53 Talbot Street South, Essex, ON N8M 1B1 or the charity of your choice. Visitation will be held from 1-2 pm at Colborne Street United Church, 711 Colborne Street, London, ON on Saturday, December 15, 2018 where the funeral service will be conducted at 2 p.m. Interment to take place on December 17, 2018 at 11 am in Greenhill Cemetery, Kingsville, Ontario.
