CHERYL FOX OBITUARY
Cheryl Smith Fox, 70, of Greenville, South Carolina passed away on December 8th after an almost five-year-long battle with Lewy Body Dementia. Cheryl was born on August 13th 1952 to Wayne Hamiliton Smith and Dorothy Maxine Smith in Marion Indiana. She attended Carmel Senior High School graduating in 1970. While there she fell in love with Roger Fox and they would later marry on January 18th 1974. Cheryl was an avid sports fan who enjoyed cheering for her grandkids on and off the field. She was always the life of the party and kept everyone laughing. She never met a stranger and lit up any room she was in. She was a beautiful and hardworking mother and had one of the most loving souls. Cheryl is survived by her beloved husband of 48 years Roger Fox; daughter; Kyleigh Michelle Jenkins (Radford) and son; Nicholas Hamilton Fox (Kendall); grandchildren; Campbell Jenkins, Peyton Jenkins, Blakely Jenkins, Colton Fox and brother David Smith of Carmel Indiana.
A celebration of life will be determined at a later date.
God Bless, the Fox family for this season they have endured.
IIRC, Cheryl moved to Carmel the same year I did and attended 6th grade in the basement of the old high school. Roger a yer or two later--maybe?
Lot's of beautiful girls in Mrs. Booth's class, Cheryl, Beverly, Vicki, et.al. My most vivid memories are all of us practicing getting down under our desks (which was pretty easy for me, but Bob Irvin was a big boy, even then!), that and the day JFK was assassinated.

Cheryl added so much extra joy to my jr. high and high school journey. I love her dearly. Cheryl, I sure hope to see you on the otherside someday. You're the best.
This is so sad I probably knew Cheryl longer than any of our classmates as we were neighbors and played with each other from as far back as I can rember(probably (3 or 4 years old). She was a special friend growing up I was so glad when she and Roger started dating. A very cute couple. I used to call her "Cutie Pie" when we were growing up and one day in Jr. High we were going to lunch and she was standing in her class doorway and I said hi "Cutie Pie" and the teacher Mr. McCaualy thought I was talking to him and made me come to his room where he paddled me. I told him I was talking to Cheryl. After I got paddled she told someone that I was paddled wrongly and he had to apologize for his paddling me.
Roger I'm so sorry for your loss cherish your memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I remember Cheryl from our days at Orchard Park. One special memory was when her mother came to our class to talk about her recent trip to Italy and the impression left on me when she shared the history of the destruction of Pompeii by Mount Vesuvius.I'm still facinated by documentaries on that event and think of Cheryl and her mom whenever I watch one on National Geographic or Smithsonion TV.
Cheryl and I were in Coquettes and remember that the 2 of us were selected to do a special dance section at a football half-time show that invovled utilizing a cape as part of our routine. I beleive that was our senior year, but remember the temperatures were frigid that evening!
RIP Cheryl and hope to dance with you again on the other side.
