Barbara Lee Cox Rigney, 69, of Enola, Arkansas passed away Tuesday, April 30, 2019. Barbara  was born on February 14, 1950 in Conway, Arkansas, the oldest child of 7, to Brady Cox, Jr and Mary Lawson Cox. She attended school at Oak Grove in North Little Rock, Arkansas. She loved family, friends, arts, crafts, music, puzzles, bowling, and was an avid reader. Barb was the beautiful Mom of Brian Lee Rigney of Mount Vernon, Arkansas, and Nana to three grandchildren, Ryan Lee Rigney of Enola, Arkansas, Breanna Nicole Rigney and Santos Valdez both of Vilonia. She also leaves to cherish her memory,  her Mother, Mary Jo Cox, three brothers, Joe Cox (Rhonda) of Enola, Arkansas; Allen Cox and John Cox both of Mount Vernon, Arkansas; one sister, Diane Sweeney of Rose Bud, as well as a plethora of nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends. Her laugh and smile were contagious and full of life. Her love was unconditional. She was always there for family and friends as well as a stranger in need. She always had a hug and a kiss for everybody. Barb never asked or expected anything from this life except for those around her to be happy. Her favorite saying was, "I love you baby". She is preceded in death by her father, Brady, two brothers, Wayne Cox and M.L. Cox. The family will receive friends for visitation from 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM Friday, May 3, 2019 at the Vilonia Funeral Home Chapel.

Aunt Barbara was a very special lady. Every time I saw her she had a smile on her face no matter what. One of my fondest memories are of our Cox family Christmas’ and she would always be the one to call the numbers for bingo. Every once in a while she would let someone else do it. She always had a big hug for everyone and you definitely knew she was a cox with that laugh of hers. Now she has joined the rest of the family in heaven and I’m sure they are all laughing and playing music. Rest easy your work on earth is done. You are loved dearly and you will be missed until we meet again in heaven. To the rest of my family still here I will continue to pray for each and every one of you. I send my deepest sympathies.
