In Memoriam: Katherine Cox

by | Jan 4, 2022

Katherine Cox passed away on December 31.


Katherine Norman Cox, 78, of Davidson, NC died December 31, 2021 peacefully at her home. She was born on March 18, 1943 in Burke County to the late Ray and Ruth Norman.

Katherine retired after a 30-year career with IBM. Following retirement from IBM, she went to work for a consulting firm until she decided to stop working to enjoy spending more time with family and friends. She became affectionately named “Kaki” by her grandchildren. She lived life to the fullest with incredible strength and courage, guided by her strong faith in her Savior, Jesus Christ. She was always there to lift others with her prayers. Her grandchildren relied on Kaki’s prayers and encouraging texts to get them through their studies and life’s path.

Katherine enjoyed her many travels around the world as well as her time spent with friends in the mountains and at the coast. She looked forward to playing bridge and mahjong with her friends as well as their extended walks around Davidson, which she called home for the last 26 years after moving from Charlotte in 1996.

She will be greatly missed as the most incredible mother, grandmother and friend that anyone could ever hope to have. The fingerprint that she left on your heart is a gift. Her love, direction, encouragement and faith will always be a guide and gleaming light.

Survivors include her daughter Danielle Knox and husband Rusty of Davidson; sister, Helen Neely and brother, Clyde Norman; and grandchildren, Jacob and Kamryn Revels.

Memorials may be made to Neighborhood Church or Hospice of LKN.

A funeral service will be held at 2PM Sunday, January 9 at James Funeral Home with a reception to follow in the James Funeral Home Community Room.
