Grace Mary Fox

Grace M. Fox, 90, of Oklahoma City, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by family December 4, 2022.Grace Mary (Thomas) Fox was born June 27, 1932, in Kansas City, MO to her parents Alvin and Ketty (Jorgensen) Thomas. Shortly after her birth Grace's family moved to Oklahoma City, where she would spend the rest of her life. She and her family joined the Catholic Church and attended the Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help for several years. In 1950 Grace graduated from Bishop John Carroll High School and went on to attend Mercy Nursing School. After completing her training she worked as a Registered Nurse at both Mercy Hospital and The Allergy Clinic of Oklahoma City. Grace married Frank R. Fox in 1955, and was married to him for nearly 50 years. Once married, she took a long break from her nursing career to raise her 5 children, Jan, Lisa, Vickie, Dan and Greg. She devoted her life to her children and her home, and over the years enjoyed sharing time with them and supporting them in all of their activities and endeavors. Grace was an active volunteer who taught Sunday school, led her daughters' Brownie Girl Scouts, and served in the PTA.Grace returned to nursing for a short time when her children were older. In her free time her favorite activities included playing tennis, sewing, ice skating, and particularly golf, which she loved and played for many years. She was an active member and served as an officer for multiple terms in the Lake Hefner and Lincoln Park Women's Golf Associations. Grace served on the Board of Directors of Royalty Holding Company for many years and was also one of the first to actively work for the rights of the unborn with Birthright (now known as Willow Pregnancy Support).She especially cherished the vacations and day trips that she shared with her family. She loved to travel and would do so with her adult children and grandchildren in her later years. Grace became an avid Oklahoma State fan when most of her children attended college there and made trips to several of the Cowboys' bowl games. Grace also enjoyed working in her beautiful yard over the years, as well as watching and feeding all of the birds that called it home. Later in life, she especially loved her kitty cats, who were very much a part of her family. She loved her home of 60 years, and was fortunate enough to end her life journey in that very place. She will be missed greatly by all of her family and loved ones until we can be together once again.Grace was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Mike Thomas and her sister Ann Thomas.
