Helene Fox Obituary
Helene Roberts Fox, 92, died Easter Sunday at Cape Cod Hospital. Helene was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. She met her husband, James D Fox from New Castle PA, when he was billeted at the Roberts home at the end of World War II. When the War was over they married and relocated to Berlin where Jim supervised the rebuilding of Tempelhof Airport. This was just the beginning of her travels. She accompanied her husband around the world as he supervised the building of 25 hotels for intercontinental hotel. From Europe, to the Middle East and Asia she bathed in the beginnings of Easy global Travel. In her travels, she picked up the flavor of the world be it through her love of things old or shells on the beach. They moved back to the states to raise their son Gavin in Darien, Ct, where she indulged in collecting antiques, continued to raise Boxers, participated in Volunteer work with a local hospital, all the while refusing to have a driver's license; only giving in to getting behind the wheel when landing on Cape Cod in 1975 and learning to prefer her garden to summer traffic. She is survived by her son Gavin Fox Orlando, FL, two grandchildren Travis Fox of Chatham, MA, and Taylor Fox of Orleans, a great granddaughter Orlena Fella of Brooklyn, NY, and two nieces Margaret Roberts Heather Woolgar both of Scotland. A memorial service will be held at Skaket Beach at a later date. For online condolences, please visit www.nickersonfunerals.com
