Susan C. Fox, 65, of Smithtown, New York, was taken by our Lord on
Sunday, September 6, 2020. Beloved wife to her husband of 40 years,
Edward J. Fox. Devoted and proud mother of her two sons, Benjamin E.
Fox and Kenneth E. Fox, whom she cherished and adored. She is also
survived by her two loving sisters Karen Harrington and Nancy Cooney,
and her brother, Dennis Cooney.
Sue loved to love people. She always had a smile on her face. Her life was
a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Romans 12:12, “Be joyful in
hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Even during her five-year
battle with cancer, Sue, a devout Lutheran, compassionately and
consistently prayed for the needs of others. She maintained a list of more
than 25 people that she would pray for each day.
Susan retired from the NYS Court System as an Associate Court Clerk
after 30 years of service. “Suzy”, who had a reputation for always being
ready to help, was lovingly referred to as "the fixer" by her colleagues. She
found great joy in helping others, whether personally or professionally.
Please join us in celebrating her life. Visitation will be held at the St. James
Funeral Home, 829 Middle Country Rd., St. James on Tuesday, September
15, from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A service will be held at St. James Lutheran
