Cox, Ava (Beba) Marie was born on April 2nd, 2014, to her parents, David and Valarie Cox. She was called home to be with Jesus and was granted her angel wings on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017.

Ava had the most piercing big blue eyes and beautiful blonde hair. She was a kind spirit and she loved to play outside. Her favorite activities included playing on the swing set, going to the park, and riding her bike. She loved everyone and was loved by everyone, always saying “Hi” to anyone that passed by. She was a big Minnie Mouse fan. Ava was a smart child and loved to learn. By the age of two, she was already counting to 10 and singing her ABC’s. Ava loved music and loved to dance. She was always a happy child and was always smiling when she was not sucking her thumb! She lit up everyone’s lives. Ava was a huge animal lover. She was always looking out for her siblings. She loved to help Mom with the laundry and the dishes. She loved to play with her kitchen set. Ava had no fear and was constantly full of energy and known to be a little mischievous. She was very petite but had an enormous appetite. She absolutely loved string cheese, Cheetos and chocolate milk. She had a huge sweet tooth and was always on the lookout for any type of sweets she could get her hands on. Her laugh and zest for life was contagious. She will be sorely missed, but forever in our Hearts!

Ava is survived by her father and mother, David and Valarie Cox of Roseburg, Oregon; sisters, Ella and Sophia; brother, Bentley; grandparents, Jack and Marie Ruffer of Roseburg, and David and Teresa Cox of Myrtle Creek, Oregon; her aunt and uncle, Debbie and Lonnie Hicks of Roseburg, Oregon; cousins, Mandy and Jeanine Harris, Makenna Harris, Zach Harris, and Zoey Harris.
