Cannon Falls

Dorothy K Fox, age 93 of Cannon Falls died August 17, 2021, at Cannon Rivers Senior Living.

Dorothy was born in 1927 in Miesville, MN to Joseph and Marie Kruse, the fourth of nine children. She married Jerome Fox of New Trier in 1945 and moved to Chicago, IL where they lived and worked for the next 45 years and raised their children Joyce and Dennis.

After Dorothy retired from her long career in Production Management at Walgreen Labs (where she was affectionately known as The Sarge) they moved to Cannon Falls in 1990 and had many good years with their extended family and an abundance of friends. They enjoyed traveling, entertaining, playing cards, participating in the VFW Community and were active members at St. Pius V Church. Dorothy volunteered at the church until just a few years ago.

Dorothy lived at Park Street for the last 10 years where she was involved with planning and supporting many social activities with her good friends and neighbors.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents, all eight brothers and sisters, her husband Jerome, his nine brothers and sisters and her companion Donny Fox.

Dorothy is survived by her daughter Joyce and her husband Joseph Wulkowicz of San Diego, CA, son Dennis and his wife Joan Fox of Traverse City, MI, grandchildren Jay Wulkowicz (Talia), Mark Wulkowicz (Allyson), Neil Fox, Amy Fox (Sonny Janitschek) and great grandchildren Allison Wulkowicz and Enzo Fox Janitschek, sister-in-law Margo Kruse, brother-in-law Tom Bement, numerous beloved nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and dearest friend Sharon Beske.
