January 27, 2019 brought to a close the full life for Wilma G. Cox, on her 88th birthday. Wilma was born January 27, 1931 in Pampa, Texas to Audrey E. and Irvin M. Fleming. At the age of 18, she met the love of her life, Wilbur Cox and they began the journey of a lifetime. During her working life Wilma owned Fleming Tax Service, working to prepare income taxes.

Wilma loved a good soap opera, working in her garden, baking and reading. She was a fashion trendsetter, lots of bling and clothes to match every season! Wilma’s beloved friend was her little dog, Cuddles. She was preceded in death by her parents; and sister, Lavelle. Wilma is survived by her children, Linda Whaley, Raymond Cox and wife Katherine; brother-in-law, Kenneth Cox and wife Nancy; grandchildren, Brian Whaley and Melissa Bialowas (Kris); great-grandchildren, Emma and Tyler; numerous nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
