Frances Aletha Crowell Cox, 87, of Indianapolis and formerly of Terre Haute, passed away at Heritage Oaks Assisted Living and Memory Care in Englewood, Fla. She was born in Chattanooga, Tenn., on July 21, 1931, to Hoyt Crowell and Mary Annette James Crowell.
Frances' family moved to Terre Haute when she was four years of age and she graduated from Indiana State Laboratory School in 1949. She worked as a bookkeeper and teller for Terre Haute First National Bank and was an administrative assistant for the Vigo County School Corporation for many years. As a youth, she was active in the former Locust Street Evangelical Church, and since 2004 was a member of Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church. Frances liked to visit her sister in Monticello, Fla., and travel the country in the RV that she enjoyed with her husband.
Frances is survived by her son, David William Cox (wife Linda), as well as two grandchildren, Benjamin William Cox (wife Katie) and Rachel Ann Cox (fiancé Colin Yantis). In addition, she is also survived by three great-grandchildren, Alexa Cox, Lillian Cox and Bradley Cox. She was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Alfred Leroy Cox, and by her two sisters, Matalie Crowell and Betty Davis, as well as two brothers, Richard "Buddy" Crowell and James Hoyt Crowell.
Funeral services will be held at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, at noon, with Pastor Rick Swan officiating. Burial will follow at Rosehill Cemetery. Visitation is scheduled for Tuesday from 10 a.m. until noon at the Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church. The family suggests that memorial contributions be made in her memory to the Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church Building Fund. Arrangements have been entrusted to Fitzpatrick Funeral Home, 220 N. Third St., West Terre Haute, IN.
