Obituary for Lela Mae Fox

Lela Mae (Weaver) Fox, age 83, of Tontogany, died August 14, 2019 and went to the loving arms of Jesus. She was born on October 14, 1935 to Edson and Helen (Beam) Weaver in Grand Rapids, Ohio.

She attended school in both Tontogany and Bowling Green where she was active in the band. She graduated from Bowling Green High School in 1953.

Lela married Dale Fox on Nov 2, 1958 at Calvary EUB Church in Tontogany, Ohio. They raised their family and watched their grandchildren grow together for 44 years. They were known for their hospitality, and the Fox home was open to all and many remember the “Mulligan Stews”.

Community involvement was important to Lela throughout her life. She participated in many things like being a girl scout leader, a 4-H advisor for Togany Teens & Petites, Lotus Chapter 477 of the Eastern Stars, Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, Middleton Twp. Homemakers, Otsego Music Boosters, Otsego Community Band, Yuletide Choir, babysitting and she was known for her sewing.

Lela had a true heart for serving Christ in every church she attended. Her roots were in three churches, Calvary UMC in Tontogany, Trinity UMC in Bowling Green, and Turning Point UMC. She served as a Sunday School teacher, nursery worker, VBS teacher, trustee, choir member, fair gate attendant, church dinner volunteer, and was a new church plant team member. When she could no longer attend, she became a fierce prayer warrior!

She is survived by daughters: Elaine (Chuck) Dunn, Mary Lou (Jerry) Wiles, Jessica (Brad) McDevitt; grandchildren: Elizabeth (Donovan) Hill, Katie (Richard) Walinski, Alex (Jess) Wiles, Amy Wiles; great grandchildren: Chloe, Liam, Lilly, and Ceara Hill; sister: Ruth (John) Eschedor; sister in law: Jackie (Howard) Shank. She was preceded in death by her parents, husbands Walter Lowe, Dale, son Richard, sisters Edna Lashaway, Marvel Smestad, Marlene Weaver and brother Donald Weaver.
