Obituary

Lynette Kennington Cox, 56, died July 1, 2019 at her mother’s home in Afton surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer. 

She was born July 26, 1962 @ Ogden, Utah to Forrest Weber and Dorothy  Eckersell Kennington, the fourth of seven children.    Lynette spent her early years between Kaysville, Utah and the family farm at Bedford. The family moved to Afton in 1971.     

She married high school sweetheart, David Cox,  Oct. 10, 1980. They spent several years in California, returning to Star Valley in 2003. Lynette and David were blessed with four sons, Mike, Steve, Kelly and Alan.  

Lynette served all her life as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  She was compassionate and caring in all her callings.   Perhaps her greatest joy was being sealed to her spouse in the Idaho Falls Temple November 2, 2013.    

Lynette is survived by her husband David Cox, sons Mike Cox (Mary Rose), Steve Cox (Hattie), Kelly Cox, Alan Cox (Shantell),  5 grandchildren, her mother, Dorothy Kennington, siblings Kathy, Ann, Garth, Donna, David and Lynn.   She is preceded in death by her father.
