Nancy Fox

Nancy Fox passed away peacefully on August 21, 2018, after a long courageous battle with breast cancer.  Her bright eyes, beautiful smile, and quick wit will be greatly missed.

Nancy was preceded in death by her husband Paul, and her parents Julia and Joe Black.

Nancy was retired from the WV State Auditor’s office, where she had worked for thirteen years for Glen B. Gainer, III.  Nancy was very active in her community of South Charleston where she and Paul lived for most of their lives.  She served on South Charleston City Council, the Board of Thomas Hospital, and was a past president of the South Charleston Women’s Club.

She is survived by daughters Kathleen (David Walker), Julia (Bill Murphy), and son Mark Stone.  Her grandchildren Brian Arrington, Kinsey and Karley Walker; Sisters Lydia Kerns-Johnson and Kathy Cary, and many loving nieces and nephews.

We will celebrate Nancy’s life Friday evening, August 24th from 6pm – 8pm at Café Appalachia, which is located at 206 D Street in South Charleston.

Transitions are difficult, but we were fortunate to have many people who helped us along this journey.  We would like to thank Dr. Coen and his staff, especially nurses Stephanie and Kelly.  We also have so much gratitude to the kind loving staff of Hubbard Hospice House. The gift of peace and comforting care you all provided was phenomenal.

In lieu of flowers, we would like to ask that donations be made to Café Appalachia at her celebration, 206 D Street in South Charleston, 25309 or Kanawha Hospice Care, 1001 Curtis Price Way, Charleston, WV 25311.

Snodgrass Funeral Home is handling the arrangements. Memories of Nancy may be shared by visiting and selecting the obituary listing.

    Sissy, Mark and Julia,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was like a second mother to me growing up and I loved being in your household with Kim and the gang! We always had a great time with you guys and Nancy & Paul. I have fond memories of babysitting the 2 of you and then there were 3 when Julia came along. What a joyful home Nancy made for all of you & your Dad! I’ll forever cherish the times I was fortunate enough to be in all your lives. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time.
    Love, Nancy (Nanaw) Turner Yates
