Mothers' Union mourns loss of Andrea
MEMBERS of the Mothers’ Union in Salisbury are mourning a much-admired vice-president who has died at the age of 61.
Andrea Fox was a trustee of the Mothers’ Union in the Salisbury diocese and her involvement had spanned more than 30 years.
She was the wife of Revd Colin Fox, who worked in parishes in Preshute, Pewsey and Avon Valley before retiring to Teffont.
Mrs Fox was devoted to her family and was an accomplished cook and needlewoman. She was also known as a welcoming host at the vicarage.
She and her husband worked together to ensure families had a great time on the Mothers’ Union Away From It Holidays and at the organisation’s caravan at Durdle Door.
More recently Mrs Fox gained accreditation as a parenting facilitator, authorising her to help families develop their parenting skills.
At the beginning of this year Mrs Fox took up the role of vice-president for Mothers’ Union and the commissioning service in Salisbury Cathedral in March was the last public service she attended before falling ill.
As vice-president Mrs Fox was jointly responsible, along with a team of trustees, for Mothers’ Union activities right across the Diocese of Salisbury.
In addition to this work she had been a school governor and a trustee for the St Mary’s Fund.
Fellow vice-president Ann Howard said: “She is a great loss and has great respect from those working with her.
Her great interest was helping parents who want to be better.”
She is survived by two sons, George and Harry, and daughter Alice.
