Sherri Faye Cox, 56 of Crane, Texas went to be with her Lord and Savior on February 23, 2021 at Crane Memorial Hospital, where she passed peacefully surrounded & comforted by her immediate family. Sherri was born September 22, 1964 in Crane to Archie Conway “George” Washington and Bonnie Washington (née Lewis). Sherri graduated from Crane High School in 1982. She earned her Associates Degree from Odessa College and retired as the Radiology Director at Crane Memorial Hospital after 29 years of dedicated & continuous service. She was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Crane.
Sherri married the love of her life and her high school sweetheart, Wallace Cox Jr. on December 3, 1983. Sherri enjoyed cooking, gardening, traveling, visiting family, and spending time at the couple’s country getaway in Christoval, TX. She was happiest surrounded by her three grandsons (usually in her kitchen) who lovingly and fittingly refer to her as Honey!
Sherri is preceded in death by her parents and sister Gloria Dawn Rainer. She is survived by her husband, Wally of 37 years, son Daniel, daughter Lindsey and her husband Kurtis, three grandsons—Braiiden, Landon and Gavin—and her sole surviving sibling, Tommy Washington and wife Kristi of Stephenville, TX, as well as multiple nieces and nephews in various parts of Texas.

A public memorial service will be held at the First Baptist Church in Crane on Sunday, February 28 at 3:00pm, with graveside services to follow directly after at the Crane County Cemetery.
