Creating adventures was her life. She enjoyed practicing martial arts, cooking, painting artwork, writing poetry, gardening, remodeling homes and spending time with her family and friends. She was also a wonderful caregiver to her mother Margaret for the past 10 years. The twosome were seldom apart which earned them the title of “Frick and Frack” by their closest friends.

She had a wide range of interests which included her earning a degree as a Machinist from Pine Technical College as well as receiving an Editor’s Choice Award from “Poetry.com and the International Library of Poetry” for a poem she had written in 2003.

She was preceded in death by her father Art Cox; sister Wilma Jean Johnson and her brother Richard Cox.

She is survived by her mother Margaret Cox of Ogilvie, MN; Siblings, Shirley Pearson (David) of Ogilvie, MN; Loren Cox (Gloria) of Babbitt, MN; Mary Palmer (Brian) of Pine City, MN; David Cox of Mora, MN; Kelly Klin of Milaca, MN; Pearl Cox of IL; Daughters, Candice Cox (Les Cable) of Zimmerman, MN; Brook Zach (Brad) of Brooklyn Park, MN; Son, Michael Molin of Mora, MN; Grandson’s Craig and Chase Cable and Collin Taylor; Many special nieces and nephews and a very special pet named “Mi-Shu” the cat.

Her vibrant spirit and her colorful and vivid imagination will be truly missed.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Dian and I were friends in high school and lost track of each other. I was trying to get in touch with her and never managed to do so, for that I am truly sorry.
    Your mom was a great woman! She will be dearly missed.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the family.
    My deepest condolences.
    Sue
