Ruth Fox Obituary, Death – It is with deep sadness that the community of Tupton mourns the passing of a beloved resident, Mrs. Ruth Fox, who peacefully departed on the 11th of December, 2023, at the age of 93. Ruth spent her life in Tupton, leaving an indelible mark on the community through her dedication, talents, and warm spirit. Born in Chesterfield, Ruth devoted her professional life to education as a teacher at Tupton Primary School until her well-deserved retirement.

Her commitment to shaping young minds left a lasting impact on generations of students who had the privilege of being taught by her. A lifelong member of St. John’s Church in Tupton, Ruth not only contributed to the spiritual life of the community but also shared her musical talents by playing the organ. She was known for her exceptional skills as a pianist and her prowess in sewing. Ruth found joy in cultivating her garden, and her passion for family extended to holiday gatherings, especially those spent in Australia.

Ruth’s legacy is intertwined with the memories of her late husband, Vernon Fox. She leaves behind a loving family, including her daughter Rachel, son-in-law Rory, and three granddaughters, each a testament to the love and warmth that defined her family life. The community will come together to celebrate Ruth’s life at Chesterfield Crematorium on Tuesday, 2nd January 2024, at 10:30 am.
