She was born on November 30, 1924, to William Lester “Bud” Cox, and Nora Belle (Hunt) Cox, in the Oak Creek community and she has lived in the Lindsay area her entire life. Marie “Tudy” married Everett Wayne Gregory on January 31, 1948. They were married for 61 years before Everett’s passing on April 13, 2009. Their union produced four children: Reta, Larry, Terry, and Alfred; whom were blessed to have them as parents. Marie was a homemaker who could do just about anything from being a wonderful mother, to cooking, sewing, gardening, canning, quilting, raising chickens, and even working cattle. She was the kindest soul and it truly defined who she was. She was also an active member of the Erin Springs Baptist Church for over 60 years and participated in many church functions. Marie was preceded in death by her husband Everett Wayne Gregory, parents, Bud and Nora Cox, brothers Chester Cox, Lester Cox, and Bee Cox, sisters, Virgie “Put” Engle, Odelia Martin, and Othelia Remy, and great grandson, Brecken Wayne Jeffrey.
