Emma Fox

Emma Townsend Fox, age 87, of Marion, went to be with the Lord on December 19, 2020 around 8 pm. She was the daughter of the late Lemuel L. Townsend and Bertha Jestes Townsend.

 

Emma was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, and sister and a follower of Christ. She loved cooking and working word search puzzles, and was known as a second mother to many. She retired from Baxter following more than twenty-five years of service. She will be greatly missed by all the family she left here.

 

She is survived by her husband of sixty-nine years, Wade H. Fox; six children, Sharon Hunter (Charles), Larry Fox (Cathy), Beverly Wilson (Bob), Kenny Fox (Dena), Michael Fox (Dottie) and Kim Kirby; one brother Wilbert Townsend; twelve grandchildren, twenty-six great grandchildren and three great great grandchildren.

 

A funeral service will be on Tuesday, December 22nd, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel of Beam Funeral Service, and interment will follow at the Jestes Cemetery in Watauga county. The family will receive friends from 10:00 to 11:00 am one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.
