(816) 3131677. You may wish to bring a note, card, story or photo with a fond memory you have of Sharon/Cookie to share with her daughter, Angie Fox and son, Kit Fox.

Cookie was born April 4, 1953 in Booneville, MO to William and Viola Maxine McCoy Ault. Cookie grew up in Marshall, MO and graduated from Marshall High School in 1971. Cookie lived the majority of her life in Independence MO and worked for the City of Independence.
In October 1989, Cookie married Charles Kellogg of Independence, MO.

She was talented in creating a variety of crafts and foods. She beautifully decorated and hosted events such as weddings and baby showers. She loved shopping and finding bargains! Cookie enjoyed traveling and cruising with friends and family. She had several opportunities to tour many countries around the world as well as most of the United States. She devoted years of her life caring for her grandchildren when they were infants and throughout early childhood. Cookie enabled her mother and stepdad to live independently in their own home in Independence for several years beyond what they otherwise could have enjoyed. Cookie helped friends and nearly everyone in her extended family at one time or another be it post op or post childbirth care or rushing to be with a loved one at ER until their immediate family could arrive. Cookie was a caretaker, always there when needed. Cookie cared for everyone else until she eventually needed to be cared for herself.

Sharon/Cookie was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Kellogg and her parents. She is survived by and deeply missed by Angela (Angie) Fox, daughter, Christian Jennings (Kit) Fox, son, Autumn Fox, daughter-in-law, Windy Immer, step-daughter, her grandchildren, sisters: Karen S. Thomas, Kathy O’Neal (Gary), nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Parkinson’s Foundation or Ascend Hospice, 783 NE Anderson Lane, Lee’s Summit, MO 64064.
