Dear Family:

I was very fortunate to have Mrs. Fox as my 3rd grade teacher at Newton Conover Elementary many years ago. I have many fond memories of being in her class. What a wonderful teacher!
I thought so much of her that I named a set of dolls after her (Monteen, Fonteen & Donteen were their names--a mama & two babies).

Truly our world has lost a great lady!! Her presence will be missed by all those she touched.

My deepest sympathy,
Vickie Davis
