In memory of
Fern Elizabeth "Ferni" Cox
Ferni Cox (1921–2019) died at home on Feb. 10, 2019, with family members by her side. Born Fern Elizabeth Arends in Cando, North Dakota, Ferni grew up in Tulare, California, and raised her four children in Southern California. In 1970, she married her high school sweetheart, Burley Cox, and moved to Fort Bragg. In Tulare, she was a switchboard operator. In Southern California, she was a secretary at the Bonita Unified School District. In Fort Bragg, she carved pine knot sculptures known as "knotheads." She was preceded in death by her first husband, Kevin Rothrock; her second husband, Burley Cox; her oldest daughter, Jill Rothrock; her stepdaughter Jimmy Titman, and two grandchildren, Jamin and Elda. Her surviving family members are her sister, Jeannie Elkins; her brother, Leonard Arends; her son, Jack Rothrock, and his wife, Sharon; her stepson, Burley Cox, and his wife, Sherri; her daughters, Susan Joyer, and her husband, Tom, and Jennifer Rothrock-Rickel and her husband, Glenn; her 13 grandchildren and many great grandchildren. Family was of utmost importance to Ferni. She was known for her quick wit and spunk and she always found the positive in every situation and in everyone. We sure do miss her.
