Missy Cole, 50, of White Sulphur Springs, WV, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, October 5, 2017, after battling an extended illness.
She was born May 5, 1967, in West Carollton, OH, before moving to Alvon, WV.
Missy had a servant's selfless heart and would put the needs of others before herself throughout her life. Missy was very passionate about cooking, and she used this talent to serve those around her. Those affected the most by this love were the youth in the White Sulphur Springs area.
Missy was an avid WSS Falcon fan. She helped coordinate countless football seasons for the youth in WSS as the area director. She also assisted as part of the South Eastern Youth Football League. In addition to all that, she was a volunteer for the WSS Rescue Squad. Missy's heart to serve and help came from her faith in Jesus Christ.
Missy was an active member of The Redemption Center in WSS. She loved nothing more than to be surrounded by her church family and fellowship. Missy's faith touched all those she came into contact with.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Lois Smith Cox.
She is survived by her father, Lloyd Cox of WSS; her husband of 20 years, Mike Cole; her children, Summer and Michael, at home; brother, David Cox of WSS; sister, Shellina Gray of Beckley, WV; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, grandnephews, and grandnieces.
