Obituary and funeral service: Joyce Tucker Cox, 86, of Monroe

Joyce Tucker Cox, age 86, passed away on March 15, 2021. Joyce was born on December 9, 1934, in Cocoa Beach, FL, to the late Frank Tucker and the late Mildred Curtis Tucker. She is preceded in death by her son, Jerry Wright. Surviving members of Mrs. Cox’s family are daughter and son-in-law, Debbie and Scott Garner; grandchildren, Hannah Garner, Will Garner, Janis Kinsey; great-grandchildren, Jordan, Kayla, and Nevaeh. 

While born in Florida and never losing her love for the beach, Mrs. Cox lived in South Carolina, Kentucky, and various cities in Georgia before settling in Walton County for the last 19 years where her daughter and her family reside. She was employed as a bookkeeper for many years at companies such as Lucas & Associates and Maier and Berkele Jewelers, both headquartered in Atlanta at the time. She loved her friends made throughout her life and spoke of them often. She had a fondness for traveling and collecting jewelry, fine glassware, and artwork. However, her sweet tooth was her biggest pleasure later in life, often requesting consistent delivery of peppermints, cookies, and pina coladas to her at Park Place Nursing Home where she resided until her death.

The family will accept visitors from 12:00pm – 3:00pm at Meadows Funeral Home in Monroe, GA on Thursday, March 18, 2021. A private family service will be held on Thursday, March 18, 2021.
