Barbara Rae Cox Arvin, 84, wife of Gene Arvin, passed away Saturday, Feb. 16th, 2019.
Barbara was born October 14th, 1934 in Irvine, daughter of the late Willie Norman and Rebecca Crouse Cox. She was a telephone operator for the Irvine Telephone Company. Barbara worked at Kroger as a cashier until retiring, as she always put it, “To spend more time with her grandchildren.” She was a member of the Wisemantown United Methodist Church.
Barbara’s biggest passion in life was her family, especially her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, spending countless hours and days at their numerous sporting events and any activities. She was a big supporter of the Estill County Youth sports programs and over the years got to know so many of the kids and parents involved. In her eyes at the end of the game there was never a winner or loser, she so loved all the kids. After the game she would say with a smile on her face “They all did great.” She even loved the officials.
Barbara was an avid piano player, learning to play by ear at age 4. She could never read music, but could play anything she heard, or you could hum to her. She loved playing for friends, family, various churches, and on Sundays at the Irvine Nursing and Rehabilitation Center & Horizon.
Barbara also liked to cook and was a very good cook. More than cooking, she enjoyed watching people eat what she prepared. No one was allowed to leave her house with an empty stomach. Her family and friends can attest to that, when they were lucky enough to eat her oatmeal cake, red velvet cake, or buttermilk pie.
In addition to her husband Gene, she is survived by her four children Shelia Arvin, Woody Arvin (JoAnn Smith), Gina Arvin (Dennis Hall), and Cindy (Gary) Robinson; five grandchildren Loren Arvin (Steve Walters), Trent Arvin, Kaitlyn (Mitchell) Weekley, Kelby Robinson, Rachel Robinson (Ryley Thompson); five great-grandchildren Andrew & Kyser Chaney, Kenslie, Ian & Sophia Weekley and one sister Elizabeth Hounshell.
She was preceded in death by four brothers Ralph, Wallace, Henry and Boyd Cox; five sisters Geneva Bates, Carrie Szmansky, Jessie Holbrook, Alma Brewer, and Audrey Chaney.
Special thanks to the staff at Marcum & Wallace Hospital, staff at Irvine Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and the staff at Hospice.
Services will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at Lewis-Abner Home for Funerals with Butch Arvin, Tom Bonny and Kelby Robinson officiating. Burial will follow in the Sunset Memorial Gardens. Friends may call anytime after 6 p.m. Thursday.
Pallbearers and honorary pallbearers will be Trent Arvin, Kelby Robinson, Andrew Chaney, Kyser Chaney, Mitchell Weekley, Steve Walters, Ian Weekley, Ryley Thompson, Gary Robinson, Dennis Hall, and Dylan Fields.

Shirley was a private person and so elected not to have a memorial service. A celebration of her life will be planned in the near future when the sun is shining and a warm breeze blowing. Care Cremation and Funeral Service is honored to be entrusted with final care.
