I am so sorry to about the death of Marie Fox. I worked with her at the Red Cross as an employee not as a volunteer. Marie's husband took pictures at my wedding in 1982. I believe all of the people that I worked with at the Red Cross have died including Ellen Kulig, Fran Hitshew, Edith Decker....I miss them all....
