Obituary for Wendy Blankenship Cox

We are saddened to announce that Wendy Blankenship Cox, age 46 of Pulaski, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, December 27, 2022.  She was a caring mother, daughter, sister,and friend.  Wendy was a graduate of the Pulaski County High School class of 1994, and had a long career in sales at Xaloy.  She was fun-loving with an enormous heart.  There were many occasions when Wendy would go without to help complete strangers.  She loved her motorcycles and driving fast down a deserted road.  Wendy had a special place in her heart for her family, and her dogs Walter and Nugget, whom she loved dearly.  Our lives will not be the same with the loss of our dear mother, daughter, sister and friend.
