Service for Lisa Lafitte Cox

February 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Lisa Lafitte Cox, daughter-in-law of Dave and Kay Cox, passed away on January 25, 2019 following a lengthy illness. A service of remembrance will be held in the Chapel of the Resurrection on February 9, 2019 at 11:00 AM.


Lisa Marie Lafitte Cox was born on February 9, 1963. Her parents were Bob and Gladys Lafitte. Due to her father’s job as an air traffic controller, the family made several moves, including one to Lubbock when she was a young girl. Most of her life, however, was lived in and around the Houston area. She graduated from the then new Willowridge High School in 1981 and attended Sam Houston State University and the University of Houston. Lisa held several retail jobs until joining the Texas Bay Area Credit Union where she worked for many years until her illness and treatments made it difficult to continue a full time job.

Her brother, Jon, father, Bob, and mother, Gladys all predeceased her. She is survived by her loving husband of over thirty-two years, David M. Cox. She is also survived by her son, Kyle M. Cox and daughter, Catherine M. Cox, as well as her mother-in-law and father-in-law, Kay S. and David B. Cox. Other survivors include her brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Steven M. Cox and Felicia Ferguson Cox who are on Air Force duty in England; her cousin, Linda Dunlap, and two nieces, Laurie and Andrea, and their children.

Lisa was a fun and loving person, always interested in new experiences, travel, crafts, gardening, cooking, creative writing and quilting. She loved her family, friends, and her pets and they loved her in return. She was an inspiration to all in the way she handled her long illness and somehow lived life to the fullest. Surrounded by her family, she passed into Heaven at home on January 25, 2019. She will be sorely missed.

Lisa supported and participated in the annual breast cancer walk sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Foundation for as long as she was able. She also volunteered and enjoyed her time at the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Coalition. It was her wish that for those desiring, contributions in her memory be directed to these organizations:
