Margo Louise Cox Ice
1959 - 2019
Margo Cox Ice, age 59, passed away on February 28, 2019. She was born in Anderson, IN on November 5, 1959 to Paul Edward Cox and Beaulah Hope Blalock.
A simple, loving person, Margo was always happy and found humor in every situation. Caring and gracious, she loved to laugh and often would at just about anything. Family was the focus of her life; an avid Facebook user, this gave her an opportunity to show others how proud she was of her kids and grandkids. Margo not only had a soft, loving heart, but she had the softest skin of anyone you would ever meet, partly due to her extensive stock of Bath & Body Works products that filled an entire cabinet. She liked to look nice; she enjoyed getting her nails done, her hair cut and going shopping often. Enjoying travelling, she would often go places with her sisters. Most enjoyed her baking, and she loved to bake things for others. Her apple pies, sugar cookies and other goodies brought many smiles. As a paraprofessional, she worked at the Vidor ISD for over 22 years; her happy nature will be missed by her many coworkers. Margo was a warrior, and she displayed that strength: in how she fought and worked hard for her children; by always having a gracious spirit no matter the situation or trial; and even how gracefully she handled her last days on this Earth.
Left to honor her memory is her daughter, Nichole Leatherwood and husband, Justin, of LaVernia, TX; sons, Nick Beckman and wife, Jamie, of Vidor, TX and Justin Beckman and wife, Lauren, of Vail, AZ; sisters, Janie Cohen and husband, Dick, of Portland, OR and Carolyn York and husband, Mark, of Rayton, MO; brother, Paul Cox and wife, Barb, of Lebanon, IN; and grandchildren, Shelby, Amara, Emily, Stephenie, Kaidin and Adrana.
Margo is preceded in death by her parents.

Margo’s life honoring service will follow at 10:00 a.m, also at the funeral home, with Pastor Jared Parnel officiating. In lieu flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
