WELLSVILLE - Lillian O. Fox, 80, entered Heaven Thursday (Jan. 9, 2014), after a brief illness.
Born Jan. 4, 1934, in Addison, she was the daughter of Homer and Eulalie Morton. She was one of five children, and is survived by her siblings. Lillian always had a strong desire to help others, and attended Alfred State College, achieving one of her fondest hopes - her designation as a registered nurse in May, 1968. She worked at Jones Memorial Hospital from 1968 to 1996.
Church and community were a part of her daily life. Lillian was a member of the First United Methodist Church and was active on many committees. She volunteered at the Hart Comfort House, Red Cross, Blind Association, and the Salvation Army, in addition to delivering Meal on Wheels with the Office of the Aging.
Lillian was predeceased by her longtime companion, Edward Letcher. They enjoyed family, friends and travel for many years.
Surviving are her four children, Michael Fox of Tucson, Ariz., Rita (Dan) Geoppner of Wellsville, Charlotte (Martin) Potter of Moses Lake, Wash., and Jerri (Kent) Ritter of Wellsville; nine grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren who she loved very deeply.
Friends may call from 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday (Jan. 12, 2014), at the Mulholland-Crowell Funeral Home. Chaplain Anne Bundrick will be officiating at 11 a.m. Monday (Jan. 13, 2014), at the First United Methodist Church on Maple Avenue in Wellsville.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Comfort House, Hospice, or the charity of the donner's choice.
