Coral W. Fox, 90, jewel at Howard's side, passed into her Savior's arms, June 7, 2017.
Born in Augusta, KS to Walter E. Wade and Elsa Neville Wade, Coral was raised on the derringer-do of the movies, family car trips and higher education. She attended the University of Kansas at Lawrence, met Howard and was wed in 1947. Howard's career took them through 8 states and many household moves. Settling in Toledo, Ohio while the kids were in school, she started the tradition to beach trips to South Carolina despite the arduous 2 day car trip with 3 children and numerous family and friends. Her fierce love of family was the glue that held us all together through 69 years of marriage and all the life events that come with it. Her love and loyalty to Howard was unwavering. She loved God and Norcross First UMC and the many friends there.
Left to treasure her memory of love, character and encouragement, are her loving husband, Howard B. Fox, children, Stephen R. Fox (Kay) of Oak Island, NC, Susan E. Casselman (Dave) of Suwanee, GA, and Thomas G. Fox (Lauren) of Akron, OH.
