Elizabeth Dorman Fox
Beloved mother and sister, Elizabeth Dorman Fox, died 4/26/2023 at the age of 91 after several months of declining health. She is preceded in death by her parents, Myrtle C. and Henry Copeland (H.C.) Dorman; her husband, Billy E. Fox; and her brothers, H.C. Dorman Jr, Kenneth Dorman, and Dr. Charles T Dorman Sr. She is survived by her three children, J. Lynn Fox, Gary R. Fox (Jennifer M Fox), and Donna J. Fox; her grandchildren, Lindsey Powell (John Powell), Austin L. Fox (Lacey Fox), Hillary Fox, Nathan Fox, Aliye Korucu; her great-grandchildren; and her brother, Larry Dorman (Martha Dorman).
Elizabeth Fox was born in Cowpens, SC, on Flag Day in June of 1931. A 1950 graduate of Campbell College, she earned a degree in Business. She then worked at Wright Machinery in Durham. More recently, she worked for the Teamsters Union Local 391 as the Office Manager in Raleigh, NC for 20 years.
She was a long time member of Bethesda Baptist Church in Durham, NC where she enjoyed the weekly “Prime Timers” get–togethers. For the past several years she has been a member of Alpharetta First United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, GA.
Being the dutiful wife, Elizabeth traveled the United States, raising her family near each Air Force Base to which Billy was assigned. She and Billy retired after 20 year in the Air Force. They moved from Charleston, SC back to Durham, NC, where they first met at an early age when Elizabeth’s family moved next door to Billy’s. Elizabeth was the beautiful “girl next door.”
During his retirement, when Billy decided to purchase a Cessna and fly it out of the Lake Norman Airpark in Mooresville, NC, Elizabeth decided she needed to learn to fly an airplane, too. She wanted to know how to land a plane should anything happen to Billy in flight. Pretty amazing, huh?
Elizabeth continued her education, taking business courses, and even learned CPR and First Aid before it was cool.
A graveside service will be held 2:00 p.m., Monday, May 1, 2023, at Woodlawn Memorial Park. Officiating will be Rev. Tim Wheeler.
