Irene "Grammie" Cox Surratt

September 6, 1930 — March 9, 2024

Randleman

Irene Cox Surratt, 93, of Randleman passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 9, 2024 surrounded by her loved ones and caregivers at Hospice of the Piedmont. Irene was born September 6, 1930 in Liberty, NC to Percy Lee Cox, Sr. and Leoline Routh Cox. 

Irene was a beloved and adored wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She was a saint on earth, served her community and our family faithfully and endlessly, and was objectively one of the best cooks around. Our bellies and our hearts will be a little less full now. A leader in the Level Cross Community Center, she served as both secretary and treasurer. Active in the Level Cross Civitans, she fulfilled many roles as well. She was also an involved member of the First Wesleyan Church of Randleman. Irene was well known for her cooking and a fresh cake was never out of reach, or ready in the freezer. 

Irene is survived by her daughter, Lori Edwards of Randleman; sons, Scott Surratt (Debbie) of Randleman, Mark Surratt (Pam) of Greensboro; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; sisters, Rachel Davis of Randleman, Margaret Ester of Randleman; brother, Wayne M. Cox of Arkansas. In addition to her parents, Irene is preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Leonard Clark Surratt; daughter, Rebecca Goins; sisters, Ruth Lineberry, Blanche Powell, Mary Underwood, Doris Beeson, Louvelia Morris, Martha Williamson; brothers, John Paige Cox, James R. Cox, Percy Cox, Jr., Charles E. Cox.

The family will receive friends Friday, March 15, 2024 from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm at Randleman First Wesleyan Church, 125 Tabernacle St, Randleman. Funeral services will follow at 12:00 pm with Pastor Stephen Barnes and Pastor Don Hurlburt officiating. Interment will be held at Randolph Memorial Park.
