We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Lee A. Patterson & Son Funeral Home
Louise Fox, 94 years, of North East, MD, died Friday, May 27, 2022 at Abbey Manor Assisted Living in Elkton, MD. She was born February 18, 1928 in Plymouth, PA. She was the daughter of the late John and Mary Cintala Meza.
Ms. Fox graduated from Harter High of West Nanticoke, PA, in 1945. Following graduation, she worked for several years as a bookkeeper for Wasley’s Jewelers in Plymouth, PA. It was here she carefully planned for her hope chest, buying a place setting of fine china, silverware and stemware with each paycheck.
She eventually followed her sister, Dorothy, to Wilmington, DE, where she met the love of her life, Lloyd Fox. Louise and Lloyd were married in 1953 and soon became the parents of three children.
Ms. Fox enjoyed birdwatching, collecting cookbooks, and watching college basketball. Her favorite team was Duke, even though one of her sons attended UCONN. She loved her family dearly, especially her children and grandchildren.
Louise is survived by her daughter, Mary Karen Fox-Talbot of Aberdeen, MD; sons, Darwin James Fox and wife, Lauren, of Lakeville MN, and Lloyd Kevin Fox and his wife, Loretta, of Brookfield, CT; grandchildren, Mark Talbot of Aberdeen, MD, Sarah Sinclair and husband, Joe, of North East, MD, Ellen Boelter and her husband, Eddie, of Eagan, MN, Kate Fox of Chicago, IL, and Anita and Jack Fox of Brookfield, CT; great-grandchildren, Juniper and Harry Sinclair of North East, MD, and Penny Boelter of Eagan, MN.
In addition to her parents Ms. Fox was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd Fox; sisters, Dorothy Iracki and Antoinette Baker.
The family would like to thank the staff at Abbey Manor Assisted Living in Elkton for the loving care they gave to Louise over the last 9 years and Amedisys Hospice for the skilled medical care they provided in her final weeks.
A graveside service is scheduled for Saturday, June 4, 2022, 10 AM, at the Asbury United Methodist Church Cemetery of Port Deposit, MD.
