July 29, 1927 — July 29, 2022

MASURY – Irene Marie Fox, 95, died on her birthday, Friday, July 29, 2022, at the home of her son with a house full of her loved ones at her side.

Irene was born July 29, 1927, to Steve C. Nagy and Caroline A. Emery Nagy.

Irene married Robert R. Fox on Sept. 1, 1961, and enjoyed 25 years of dancing with him.

After his death June 6, 1986, she dedicated herself to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. “Grandma Fox” spent her time crocheting and sewing unique gifts for the family, including a wedding dress for a daughter-in-law, gifts for marriages and graduations, and multitudes of baby blankets for each grandchild and great-grandchild.

She enjoyed taking trips with her children and daughters-in-law. Irene always had a dish of cherry-covered cheesecake or fudge for family gatherings and passed on recipes for her nut rolls and stuffed cabbage.

She was a member of St. Bernadette Catholic Parish.
