GAINESVILLE, Ga. – Kristen Marie (Dugas) Fox, 46, died unexpectedly on Monday, February 22, 2016, in Gainesville, Georgia. Born on September 26, 1970 Kristen was the beloved daughter of Kevin and Linda (Beaudry) Dugas of Lee, N.H.

She was raised in Durham and attended Oyster River Schools. She then went on to study at the University of Vermont School of Allied Health earning a degree in Dental Hygiene. She worked at Vermont Dental Care for ten years before relocating to Georgia where she married John Fox and started a family. Most recently she had completed three years of study in the Nursing program at North Georgia University in Dahlonega.

Kris was an avid knitter and enjoyed many other crafts including basket weaving and making jewelry. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her three sons and with her friends.

Kristen was a warm and loving person who touched many lives in a positive way. She assisted her father with dental services on several trips to Haiti. She lit up a room with her beautiful smile and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her parents Kevin and Linda Dugas of Lee, N.H., Sister Kim Hopwood, brother-in-law Mike Hopwood, and nephew Mason Hopwood of Hinesburg, Vermont, John Fox and her three sons Ethan Fox, Cole Fox and Jack Fox of Dawsonville, Georgia, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Kris was my friend for several years in high school and I always had such a crush on her. Her parents were so nice to me over the years. I remember every Christmas Eve I would go to midnight mass In durham with my parents and hopefully see my old friend Kris. She was a beautiful person. It’s amazing so many years later to see her with those beautiful children and her arms wrapped around them in pictures and a smile that could light up the world. I’m sure life was not always easy for her, and though I didn’t know her after high school she obviously created so much beauty in the world around her. She was a beautiful person and I will not forget the little time that I was fortunate enough to know her.

Krissy was the first friend I made when we moved to Dahlonega. We started knitting together and I remember many fun afternoons sitting in her living room knitting and laughing! Unfortunately things happened that prevented us from getting us together for knitting. But I so enjoyed her friendship and her wonderful laugh. My heart breaks for her family, especially those boys.

Our sympathy goes out to Dugie's family. I used to work with Kris for years at Vermont Dental. She was a dear friend. she also cleaned both my and my husbands teeth for year.
She will be in our hearts forever, she was one of a kind, so caring and loving. I remember her teaching a few of us girls from the office how to weave baskets. I still have that basket and the one she made, signed and dated for our house warming. We were lucky to have her in our lives, even though it was short.
RIP Kris

Dear family of Kristin.
I had the pleasure of working with Kris at Bellamy in Dover.
She was a hard worker, and enjoyed assisting the elderly. Kris had the biggest smile that would light up a room. I was glad that she was a friend.
She would always show me pictures of her beautiful boys that she was so proud of and loved so deeply. God Bless you all, and I pray that she now has eternal peace with the Lord.
Rest Peacefully Kris..much love.

All of the Dugas Family I hold dear to my heart during this trying time. (Dr.)Kevin, Linda, Kim and Kris were one of the very few special families I remember from growing up in NH.

Kim, Linda, and Kevin

I am so sorry to hear of Krissy's passing. I will have everlasting memories of reunions at the farm and spending fun times with my older cousins. Krissy always seemed so cool and grown-up, and I remember how much I looked up to her even though she was little more than a year older than myself.

While we that remain behind will grieve and miss her terribly, we know that she has received God's embrace and has found eternal peace.

Please know that although we are not there, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you this day.

Boys, I am so very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Don't let this break your wonderful spirits. You each have brought me many smiles and lots of laughter. Each of you carry special qualities and I am so proud to have been your swim coach. I know that the joy that I had working with you last summer is not comparable to the joy you brought to your mom. Always remember the good times. I am sending so much love and prayers to your family.
