Catherine “Cathy” Cox Tribble, 72, died Tuesday, January 26, 2021, with her loving husband of 54 years by her side. She was born October 13, 1948, to Joseph Clark Cox and Ruth Ligon Cox. She married James “Jim” Edward Tribble on Dec 23, 1966. 

Cathy will be remembered for her desire to help and serve others. From her degrees in education and psychometry that led her to a career in teaching first in the classroom and then in the private sector through the NILD program to her devoted raising of two children of her own, Cathy’s love of helping the next generation will not be forgotten.

Cathy and Jim loved camping with their children, raising various pet dogs, traveling especially on cruises, reenacting medieval life with the Society for Creative Anachronism, and visiting with family especially her grandkids. Most importantly, Cathy was a woman of deep faith who raised her family to love and follow Jesus.

Cathy Tribble is survived by her husband Jim, her son Joseph “Josh” Edward Tribble, her daughter Joi Soo Tribble, her four grandchildren, her cousin Tom Stocks, her uncle William Ligon, and many cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, an infant sibling, and her two infant children, James Joseph “Joey” Tribble and Julie Lynn Tribble. May she rest in the loving arms of her Savior with her parents and children at her side.
