My sweet, beautiful wife went to Heaven yesterday, May 3, 2021 at 3:35 p.m. beyond the sunset. I loved her and she loved me, for more than 60 years. Mildred Davis Fox, was born in Catawba County to Terry and Irene Davis. She was preceded in death by her mother and father; paternal grandparents, Jacob and Della Davis; maternal grandparents, Luther and Bertha Bowman; and aunts, Margaret Lutz, Ruth Lutz, and Frances Leonard. Survivors include her husband, Larry Fox of the home; sisters, Helen Poteat and husband Bill of Hickory; cousins, Margaret Alice, Carolyn, Libby, Ruth Anne; sister-in-law, Sandra Turner; her kitty Summer; and two dogs, Flower and Molly. She was loved by her niece and nephew, Cathy Powell and David Mingus; great nieces Spencer Osterhoudt and Emily Mingus; and great nephew, Shawn Mingus. Mildred worked at Todd’s Florist, and in later years, she worked as a nurse for Dr. T.R. Williams, Dr. Bill Fritz, and Dr. David Tart. She has been in declining health for over ten years. I would like to thank the Kindred Nurses and Hospice Ladies, especially, Karen, Jamie, Tracy, and R.N. Lisa Bumgardner. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Hickory Funeral Home. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 3:00 until 3:45 p.m. at the funeral home. Rev. Kenny Robison will be officiating the service. Burial will take place at a later date at St. Stephens Lutheran Church Mo-Synod. Memorials may be made to The Lunch Box for Seniors at St. Stephens Lutheran Church Mo-Synod, 2304 Springs Rd.

I knew Mildred through Dr. Williams. I was a patient there while expecting my two daughters ( born 1966 & 1969). Mildred was so kind and caring during that time. She was so special. Mildred and I did a lot of crying together when Dr. Williams passed unexpectedly.
I pray that her family will find much peace in their beautiful memories of Mildred.

I am so sad to hear this. I worked with Mildred at the dermatologists' office in 1979. She made my days so happy, always smiling with a kind word to say to the patients. She was one of a kind and will be missed.
