Delores Marie Fox

Dee Fox, affectionately known as: Mom, Aunty Dee, Aunt LoLo, Aunt Mickey, Ms Dee, Momma Fox, Mother in Law, Grandma, G Ma, but no doubt she was the 'Matriarch' of the Fox Family, St. John's Church and the local community.

Dee was born in McKeesport, Pennsylvania on March 8, 1939. She was the youngest of nine children to Sadie Qualls and Eugene Mikell. Dee graduated from McKeesport High School, leaving her mark in many social clubs and services. She was the president of Y Teens that promoted friendship among ALL girls. Dee enlisted in the Navy in 1958 and relocated to Great Lakes, Illinois. It was there, in June 1960, that she crossed paths with Rufus A. Fox, whom she married in September of the same year. They have been married for 63 years, continuing until today.

As a military wife, Dee traveled with her husband to many duty stations as they grew their family and continued her social community work. Dee was an exceptional community organizer, artist, sports expert, as well as a devoted, faithful, God fearing woman. All of her children were involved in social activities and she attended every one of their events and games.

Dee was preceded in death by her parents, Sadie and Eugene Mikell; her siblings Wilhelmina, Herman, Margaret, Kenneth, Jessie, Frank, Charlie; and son Alex. She is survived by her husband, Rufus; sister Melissa; daughters Marie, Tina and Dorothy; grandchildren Lex, Ricky, Jade, Lauren, Lee, Aleah, Dominick, Marlayna and Christopher; as well as many great grandchildren.
