Susan Elizabeth Cox

November 14, 1946 – May 12, 2022

Susan Elizabeth Cox, 75, passed away peacefully on May 12, 2022 surrounded by her loving family in Noblesville, Indiana.

She was born on November 14, 1946 to William and Betty (Barnard) Peck in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Mrs. Cox graduated from Park Forest Hill High School in Illinois in 1964 and attended Churchman Business College. Her father’s job took the family to many places, including Argentina during her high school years.

She met her husband of 54 years, Bruce Warren Cox, on a blind date and they knew right away they were meant for one another. Mrs. Cox started raising her family while Bruce was a First Lieutenant in the Vietnam War. She lived with family and on Military Bases while Bruce was in service.

To support her family and have time with her children, she worked at Greenbriar Elementary School as a Librarian and at North Central High School as an Administrative Assistant.

An artist at heart, Mrs. Cox could always be seen working creatively on paintings, flower arrangements, jewelry, crochet, or baking. Her hands were never empty, they were always busy in either crafting, or care for another.

She was an avid collector of antiques, specializing in handmade pottery, and a member of the Red Wing Collection Society and secretary of Indy Wingers. This passion led to a great many cherished friends and relationships. This tight-knit group traveled together to pottery events to enjoy craftsmanship and fellowship.

Mrs. Cox deeply enjoyed time with family, reading, Colts and Pacers games, and was a member of Noblesville First United Methodist Church.

Quick with a laugh, assistance, or a supportive hug, friends and family knew they could always call on her in time of need.

Survivors include her husband Bruce Cox; two children Jennifer (Matt) Jones of Westfield and Jeff (Kelly) Cox of Noblesville; three grandchildren, Grady Britt, Kayleigh Britt and Derek Jones; two siblings Debbie (Jim) Youngkin and Gregg Peck; brother-in-law Gary Cox; sister-in-law Sylvia (Ken) Barr; several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; and her beloved dog, Maxx.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sisters-in-law Kathy Peck and Judith Hoog.

Memorial services are scheduled to be held at 11:30 a.m. on Friday May 20, 2022 at Noblesville First United Methodist Church, 2051 Monument Street in Noblesville. Visitation is scheduled to be from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the church. Internment will be at Eagle Creek Cemetery in Westfield.

A heartfelt thank you to the staff of Riverview Health, Paradigm Health, and Noblesvile First United Methodist Church for their care and gracious support.
