Colette Fox passed away Sunday after a long battle with Lewy Body Dementia. She touched many lives with her vibrant spirit and positive outlook.
Colette was born in the town Tullamore in County Offaly, Ireland. Leaving Tullamore she went to London and worked as a conductor on the London bus system. It was there that she met her husband Dermot "Pete" Fox. The couple moved to the United States and settled on Alameda in 1968. After several years of working retail in downtown Oakland she assisted Dermot in managing their General Contracting business located in Alameda. Colette retired with Dermot in 2003 and began their golden years together.
Colette is survived by her loving husband, Dermot; son Neal and daughter in law Karin, and her grandchildren Claire and Jake. She is also survived by her two sisters Mary Molloy of Grass Valley, CA and Peggy McGee, Tullamore, Ireland and many nieces, nephews and cousins. She will be greatly missed by all who were able to know her.
