Shirley Ann Fox

69, of Akron, Ohio, passed away on April 10th in her home, surrounded by loved ones. She was born Jan. 4th, 1952 and grew up in Alliance, Ohio where she attended Marlington High School. She spent a large portion of her childhood in the Fairmont Children's Home after losing her mother at a young age. Shirley was an avid animal lover and was very artistic. She was an administrator of several FB groups and ran a page for the Fairmont Children's Home to reconnect previous residents and their families. She greatly enjoyed her part time job at Circle K, speaking highly of her coworkers and regular customers.

Shirley is survived by the love of her life, her husband, Charlie; her daughters, Laura Gaetano and Jennifer (Martin) Wolford; her stepsons, Kevin Fox, Toby Fox, and Lance Fox; her granddaughters, Nastasia Clarke and Laillah Falconbery, and her great-grandson, Santana Law.

A private celebration of life will be held on May 21st to honor Shirley's memory. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make a donation to the ASPCA in Shirley's name.

Condolences and prayers for Shirley’s family and friends. We met at the FCH reunions but being a little younger I could never remember her being there when I was living there. Her half brother Gary McNickle graduated At Marlington in 64.

We hold t the 4th Sunday in June at Stadium Park pavilion 4 11:00m to when ever the last people leave. All past residents and family are welcome. We Ave a meeting and lunch at noon.

Shirley was such a loving and caring person. We met 25 yrs ago through horses. I use to ride to Shirley's house on my horse so we could ride together. Shirley you will never be forgotten as I have things you made me around me to this day. Much love to the Fox family
