Rosalyn Fay (Rosenfield) Fox

Graveside Services were held at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 1, 2011 at the Jewish Cemetery, Pineville with Rabbi Arnold Task officiating. Arrangements were under the direction of John Kramer & Son.

Rosalyn Fay Fox, a beautiful soul rich in love and joy, has left us for
a better place. Beloved mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend,
Rosalyn was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, to Isidor and Irene
Rosenfield on January 19, 1929.

Rosalyn married Sylvan Robert Fox in August 1948, in Shreveport. The
couple then took up residence in Alexandria, where Sylvan and his
parents, Milton and Edna Fox, lived. Sylvan began his career as a
broadcasting pioneer and successful entrepreneur, and together Sylvan
and Rosalyn built their wonderful life together.

In her younger years, Rosalyn enjoyed active roles in the Junior League
of Alexandria, the Green Thumb Garden Club, and the Alexandria Jewish
Temple Sisterhood.

Her late husband, Sylvan Fox, and her sons, Randy and Jimmy Fox, meant
the world to Rosalyn. She was also devoted to her late parents and late
stepfather, Arnold Hermer, and to her brother and sister-in-law, Robert
and Betsy Rosenfield, who, with Jimmy, are left to cherish her memory.
Sylvan’s brother and sister-in-law, William and Barbara Fox, also
survive her.

Rosalyn’s family and many friends will never forget this woman of
grace, style, verve, and brilliance. Rosalyn lived life to the fullest,
always with a song in her heart that overcame sadness, and with a
loving smile for those lucky enough to have been close to her.

The family wishes to thank her doctors and their staffs, and those
individuals who helped make her later years at home as comfortable as
