With grace and quiet elegance, reflecting the way she lived, Delores A. Fox, 81, was fortified with the Sacraments of the Catholic Church, as she began her eternal life on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2019. Beloved and devoted wife of Dr. Edward C. Fox, for 56 years; dearest mother of Ted (Mona) of Weston, Dr. Julie of Wausau, and Angie of Rhinelander; caring grandmother of three, Olivia, Jacob and Michael. Born June 3, 1937 in West Rosendale, Delores was the daughter of the late Arno and Edna Daehn.  She attended St. Mary’s of the Woods College, where she earned her degree in phlebotomy. She was always a lady, both inside and out, and forever dedicated to her family. In her free time, she enjoyed painting, playing golf, playing cards and shooting pool.

The Fox family would like to thank Delores’s medial team: Dr. Richard Fossen, physician, at Marshfield Clinic in Minocqua; Dr. Steven Fox, surgeon, at Aspirus Hospital in Wausau; Dr. Amy Harker-Murray, oncologist, at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee; Dr. William Dzwierzyski, surgeon, at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee.  All of their kindness, compassion and direction Delores received during these difficult times were greatly appreciated by the Fox family.
