Nancy Marie (Gray) Cox


Nancy Marie Cox, of Bay City, TX departed this earthly realm for her heavenly home on Sunday, June 7, 2020. She was 60 years old. She was born April 8, 1960 in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota to Leone Sayer Gray and the late Leroy Gray.

For the last 10 months, Nancy battled a progressive form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It would be wrong to say that Nancy lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how she felt, she was always determined. Though her body weakened, Nancy remained strong and her zest for life never wavered. She leaves behind a legacy of love and laughter.

Survivors include her adoring husband, David Cox; daughters Melissa Krause and Madeline DeLaney (Jeff); son Dustin Hodges (Meghan); mother Leone Gray, sisters Gina Steffl (David) and Lisa Johnson (Brian); brothers David Gray (Karen), Dan Gray (Julie), Steve Gray, Shawn Gray (Cindy) and Jason Gray and grandchildren Alissya Krause, Hattie Krause and Wyatt David Delaney.

A visitation will take place Thursday June 25th, 2020 at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Detroit Lakes, MN at 10:00 am followed by a funeral Mass at 11. A lunch will follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, Nancy’s family requests that you make a donation to your local ALS Support Chapter in her honor.
