Anna Lou Flanders Cox, age 91, of Battle Creek, Michigan entered into the presence of her Lord and Savior on Saturday, April 11, 2020. Born on January 14, 1929 in Battle Creek, Michigan, Anna Lou lived her entire life in Battle Creek. She is the daughter of the late Percy Harold Flanders and Iva Mae Loveland Flanders Eberhard.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Richard Dial Cox, sister Irene Flanders Cope and brother Harold Flanders.
Anna Lou is survived by her four children, Juanita (Richard) Howes of Battle Creek, Richard (Vicki) Cox of Allendale, Michigan, Pennie (Michael) Manto of Brantford, Ontario, and Kimberly (Chad) Perry of Battle Creek, Michigan; six grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren, Matthew (Julie) and their children Adrienne, Felicity Cox of Mount Joy, Pennsylvania, Jeffery (Trish) and their children Micah, Norah Cox of Marathon, Florida, Jennifer (Jorden) and their children Molly, Weston, Claire Haisma of Allendale, Michigan, Benjamin (Jennifer) and their children Miles, Alaina Cuthbert of Orleans, Ontario, Rebecca Cuthbert (Jordon Cottenie) and their child Conan Cottenie of Stratford, Ontario, Brian (Ana) and their children Carter, Daelan Cuthbert of Windsor, Ontario; and numerous nieces, nephews, and two cousins.
She spent her adult life as a homemaker. She enjoyed gardening, crocheting, bird watching, camping, traveling the Michigan countryside, especially going to the Great Lakes and Sault Saint Marie, and in her later years watching Detroit Tiger baseball.
Because of the CoVid-19 pandemic restrictions, a family celebration of Anna Lou’s life will take place at a later date. A private family committal service will take place at the Fort Custer National Cemetery, Augusta, Michigan, next to her husband, Richard Dial Cox, a WWII veteran. The family wishes to thank the staff of Lakeview Assisted Living Community and Hospice of Southwest Michigan for all of their care and compassion. You may leave remembrances online at

Rick, Juanita, Pennie & Kim, Oh how sad but how glorious at the same moment. We do not grieve as those who have no hope. I am so thankful! Wow, the memories of Sunday afternoon's at the Cox house. Such great times. It seems like such a long time ago. Mom & I are praying for y'all, that God will grant you His perfect peace during this time of sadness and celebration of your mom's life. She had such a way about her, making me feel so welcome. God's richest blessings on each of you. Until we all meet in Heaven! Love & prayers, Julie & Colleen Freeman (Dickinson, Texas)

From Bill and Joanie Lancaster:
We are so sorry for the loss of Anna Lou. She and her late husband, Richard, were a bright light of love for one another and an example of a "perfect marriage". At times we would run into them in a store, and had great conversations of how each family was doing. We want to let Rick, Juanita, Penny and Kim that our prayers are with you through these times of sorrow. We will see her again in heaven and rejoice together, with our LORD and Savior.
God Bless and Keep you.

Bill, Joanie and Family.

Ric, Juanita, Pennie and Kim: I am so sorry for your earthly loss; I'M looking forward to YOUR REUNION when your families will be together in Heaven; Oh, what an awesome reunion. The Lord blessed me by knowing your folks and you guys. I remember being with Pennie and going shopping for groceries, The many visits with them were precious - and they won't be forgotten. The wind chime, the gift from our wedding will not be forgotten. I have a special love for your folks and when it's my "turn" to give them a BIG HUG - I can't wait. I've been praying for you all - take care. Love and Prayers to all of you. Debbi
