Elaine was brought into this world by George and Ruby Cox at the Wolf and Duphorne Hospital in Athens, Texas. The family moved to Arlington where Elaine graduated from Arlington High School and spent most of her life in Arlington and Dallas. Elaine worked in real estate in Dallas and became an art collector with many beautiful and famous works of art. She was an unselfish woman who was involved in countless charities and always gave back to those less fortunate. She was a member of the Dallas Junior League and volunteered often for the Susan B Komen Foundation. She served on the board of Lovers Lane Methodist Church where she was a member for many years. After moving to Athens in the mid 1990’s she continued volunteering at several helping organizations. Above all, she was a follower of Christ and a rare breed of a lady.
Elaine was preceded in death by her parents, a son Russell Cole, a brother Jack Cox, and a sister Barbara Jean Smith.
Elaine is survived by her husband, Dr. Joe Warren, Athens, son Gary Moore and wife Lisa of Pueblo, Colorado, a grandson, John Moore and husband Bryce Crawford of Denver, Colorado. Also step daughters Faith Warren of Tyler and Ally Warren of Austin. She is also survived by a special cousin Delores Herrington of Athens, nephew Randy Parnell and niece Suzanne Keones of Athens. Also a sister in law Mary Cox of Irving, along with many other cousins, nephews and family members.
