Betty Fox Passes

breaking news

Thunder Bay – From the Terry Fox Lookout, and the day that young Terry Fox ended his heroic run across Canada, the Fox family has remained in the hearts of Canadians.

The Fox Family has issued a statement:

It is with considerable sadness that we share that our wife, mother and grandmother died at 8:25am (PT) this morning. Betty/Mom passed away peacefully surrounded by love. Betty was comfortable the last few weeks and months of her life, was always full of wit and rarely alone. Our wife and mom is now with Terry and joins other dear family members that predeceased her. We have greatly appreciated the privacy granted to our family since Betty’s illness was shared and are hoping it continues at this difficult time.

Cards and messages can be sent or posted to:
