Notes for Ina Faye Cox:
Betty Cox Dexter: "On January 12, 1954, Faye called Pastor and Mrs. Wolfe to come to her house to go over the books of the WMCs. You see, Faye was the secretary of this organization. When they got there they knew that Faye was very sick and insisted that she wait about the books and see about getting the doctor to see her. She told them that she felt that she should go over the books with them and be sure everything was in order before she got the doctor. After some time, the Wolfes knew that everything was fine as far as the WMC books were concerned. But things were not so good with her condition. She was sent to the hospital and stayed overnight. Sometime later in the morning of the thirteenth, Mama Cox called me on the telephone and told me Faye was not doing well. I called Sylvester, who lived around the corner from me, and Rubin who was at work. Soon after our arrival at the hospital room, we saw life ebbing from here and we had to bid her goodbye. Sister Faye, though she was our sister, mother, wife, aunt... -- was known as the sweetest Christian that ever was. Never was she disgruntled as many of us often get. She always had a hearty laugh with anyone who came by. She didn't have any strength to do a lot of things, but she always had a smile to give you. You never quite get over the vancies left when people like this are missing."
