WATERTOWN, NY —  Marilyne J. Fox, 84, of White House, TN, and formerly of Watertown, NY, passed away on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021, at Tri star Hendersonville Hospital Hendersonville, TN.

Marilyne was born March 19, 1936, in Ogdensburg, NY, the daughter of Lyle and
Mary Johnston.

Marilyne had a passion to be a caregiver, she was a CNA at the Mercy Hospital and House of the Good Samaritan Hospital in Watertown, NY. Later in her years she became a caring advocate and nurse for hospice care.

Her mission was to offer a pathway to Christ for her patients before they passed.

Wherever she went she was the center of attention creating a positive way to make people smile.  She was able to express her free will without hesitation. Her love for music and song was expressed and shared by many through her talents playing the piano, organ and singing hymns. She was never hesitant about dancing in public.

Surviving family members are two sons Steven and Kevin Weed, Watertown, NY; a daughter, Donna Read, White House, TN; eight children who all call her grandma proudly.

Her parents and three brothers Lyle, Art and Wally, all died before her.

Her marriages to Earl Weed  and George Fox ended in divorce.

There will be no calling hours. Her ashes will be buried at Lakeside Cemetery,  Sackets Harbor at a later date.

Donations can be made in her name at any local hospice provider service of your choice.

She was never shy to say,
“I Love You” before we parted.  And we now say,
“We love you Marilyne”
