Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Sharon Mae Fox, age 73 and a longtime guest of the Carbondale Nursing Home, passed away Thursday at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, after an illness.
Sharon was born on November 26, 1948, and daughter to the late James Donald and Helen (Swingle) Fox. She enjoyed taking walks, having her Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and listening to John Denver music (she was his #1 fan).
Sharon was someone who never saw disabilities. Rather, she only saw abilities. She always spoke up for both herself and also any one who couldn’t do it for themselves. Once she put her mind to something, nothing could stop her.
She adored her family and friends and always enjoyed telling stories about them. If she chose you as a friend, you were made a friend for life.
Sharon’s laugh was contagious and her smile could light up any room. In her presence, those around her were immediately greeted with love.
She will forever be missed by family, friends and extended family.
One of thirteen Fox siblings, she was survived by nieces, nephews and extended family from the Carbondale Nursing Home, especially dear Karen Hemchak and Noreen Cosmark, and The ARC of NEPA family. The latter two groups provided Sharon with incredible support, amazing kindness and selfless love throughout the years.
A blessing service is scheduled for Wednesday at 6:00 PM at the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue. Family and friends may pay their respects on Wednesday from 4:00 PM until services.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Sharon’s name to The ARC of NEPA c/o 115 Meadow Ave, Scranton, PA 18505.
