Nena Elaine O'Neal Cox passed away Friday, April 23, 2016 after a short but heroic battle with cancer. She is survived by her sister Linda (Leon) Harward of Cedar Hills, Utah; and her brother Ted O'Neal of Columbia, South Carolina. Her daughters, Vali Ann (R. Kelly) Kremer of Murray, Utah; Vicki Lyn (Cameron) Saxey of Kaysville, Utah; and Vail Sharon (Bert) Martin of Riverton, Utah; her beloved 14 grandchildren; 29 great grandchildren; and 2 great-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents: Mainlaw and Lula Mae O'Neal; sister, Marlene Haygood; husband Louis Alfred Morrow and son Louis Morrow "Little Louie"; and husband Jack Cox.\n\nA proud southern belle, Nena was born in Hartsville, South Carolina, June 26, 1942. She loved reading and learning and was proud of her college education. Nena had a loving caring spirit and she was so proud of the hot dog stand, O'Neals that became the most popular teen hangout in town. Nena and her husband Lou loved talking to and serving the kids that came to call O'Neals their second home.\n\nNena was at her best when she was serving others. Everywhere she went she spread sunshine and love. She was particularly close to her sister Linda and they would talk several times a day. She loved her children and their posterity and was always hugging and loving on her family and friends. She loved her dogs of which she had several over the years including Jazzy, her current Pomeranian who has missed her so much since Nena went into the hospital a week ago.\n\nNena was a breast cancer survivor and fought valiantly against the lung cancer that spread so quickly throughout her whole body this past month, but survival was not to be this time. The past week was spent with her loved ones both here on earth and those beyond the veil. She was calm and peaceful and ready when she left her earthly body.\n\nThe family wishes to thank her doctors and nurses for their loving support and help over the past few weeks. We would also like to acknowledge Olpin Family Mortuary for their assistance in making final arrangements. A small memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at noon in the Manila Ninth Ward Chapel, 3785 W. Box Elder Dr. Cedar Hills, Utah.\n\nCondolences may be sent to the family at www.olpinmortuary.com.
