Funeral services will be held at 11am Wednesday at the Burgoon United Methodist Church for Evalyn N. Fox, 94, who died late Sunday morning at the Hospice House in Poland.
She was born May 16, 1915 in Burgoon, the youngest of thirteen children, to the Rev. William H. and Effie B. (Jacobs) Bennett, and she came to the Youngstown area in 1961.
She was a 1933 graduate of Jackson Burgoon High School, where she performed in many musicals. She was a charter member of the Columbus Avenue Evangelical United Brethren Church in Sandusky where she taught Sunday school and was active in the choir. She spent her adult life as a homemaker raising and caring for her family.
She married Raymond W. Fox August 3, 1934 and he preceded her in death January 16, 1992.
She is survived by four children; Rae Jeanne Mollica, Bennett D. (Sheri) Fox, and John W. (Nancy) Fox all of Austintown; and Sue (Jack) Buroker of Kenton; thirteen grandchildren, and twenty-nine great grandchildren.
Besides her husband Evalyn is preceded in death by her parents, a daughter Lou Ann Fox, a grandson Joseph Tooley, a son-in-law Tony Mollica, six brothers; Othel, Orley, James, Russell, Leo and Don Bennett; and six sisters; Opal Stine, Ruth and Goldie Bennett, Susie Johnson, Pauline Tinder, and Mildred Riddle.
She was affectionately known to everyone as "Grandma Fox" and she will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
She went home to be with her Heavenly Father surrounded by her family. She always said "We have so much for which to give thanks", and we are very thankful to have had her in our lives.
Friends may call from 4-7pm Tuesday at the Lane Funeral Home Austintown Chapel.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Hospice House in Evalyn's memory.
