ROCKPORT………….Nancy Jean Cox, 77, of Rockport, passed away at the Sussman House on Christmas Day at 10:25pm surrounded by family. As Nancy said herself, she has lived a great life and couldn’t be more proud of her family and dear friends. Nancy will be missed dearly.
She was born on February 7, 1942 in Gardiner, to the late Russell and Gwen Newbert and attended Gardiner schools growing up. She later graduated as valedictorian from Westbrook Junior College. In 1964, she married Tom Cox, her high school sweetheart, and went on to raise their 3 sons in Rockport, where she enjoyed gardening, bee keeping, and nature walks with dear friends. She was an active member of her sorority and book clubs, and Nancy always thought of others’ needs first. There was nothing she loved more than being with her husband and watching and supporting her sons and grandchildren grow and in all of their endeavors.
Nancy was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and sister, and is survived by her husband of 55 years, Tom Cox of Rockport; her son Stephen and his wife Brooke of Bowdoinham; her son Andrew and his wife Vail of Madbury, NH; her four grandchildren Katelyn, Cameron, Keilan, and Grayson; her older brother Russell Anderson Newbert of Buffalo, NY; and her extended Cox family to whom she was very close. Nancy is predeceased by her son Michael J. Cox, 28, of Ballston Lake, NY in 1994.

I am so very sad that my dear friend Nancy has died. Nancy and I didn't see each other often but when we did get together it was always as if we'd never been apart. Nancy, Lois, Betsy and I had a wonderful friendship and shared many hilarious moments. What was always so apparent was how deeply Nancy loved her family. She was a devoted mother, wife, mother-in-law, and grandmother. She had such loving things to say about her "daughters," Brooke and Vail.
My deepest condolences, Tom to you and your family.
