Janie Ruth Bolch was born February 11, 1929 in Hickory, North Carolina to Hazel “H.J.” and Willie Mae Bolch. She met the love of her life, Deryl Dennis Fox, at the Y.M.C.A. in Baltimore, MD. Deryl was serving in the U.S. Air Force and Janie was attending the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Work. The first Friday of each month the Y.M.C.A. had a dance. The military guys would come to dance and meet girls. The ladies would stay at the Y.M.C.A., went to dance and meet guys. Deryl and Janie met in December of 1951 and four months later, on April 6, 1952, they were married.
Janie graduated from Lenoir Ryhne College in Hickory North Carolina on June 4, 1951 with a Bachelor of Education and Texas A & M Commerce with a Masters Degree in Education in 1957. Her teaching career included teaching in Arkansas, McCamey, TX and Eagle Mountain Saginaw I.S.D.

 

Her service to the community included being an active member of the Saginaw Lions Club, volunteering to feed the homeless at the Presbyterian Night Shelter and faithfully serving as a Ruling Elder at John Knox Presbyterian Church in River Oaks. In her later years she especially enjoyed delivering homemade blueberry and strawberry bread to the Saginaw Fire Station, Library, City Hall, Eagle Mountain I.S.D. Administration building, and her many friends.

 

Her greatest joy and love was her family, serving delicious meals, taking grandchildren shopping and making Russian Tea, whenever someone was sick. She lived a full and wonderful life.

Janie was preceded in death by her husband, Deryl, and daughter, Linda Lee Fox.

Survivors include her son, Steven Fox and wife Debbie; daughter, Kathy Fox Raine and husband Mason; grandchildren, Bryan Fox and wife Christina, Natalie Fox Sanders and husband Keith, April Raine Taylor and husband Cris; brother, Marion Bolch; sisters, Libby Bolch Hobbs and Karen Teague; and a number of nieces, nephews and many dear friends.
