Verdonna Mae Fox passed away February 13, 2019 at Parkview Noble Hospital. She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry B and Lucille Fox, two sisters, Ruth Hoersting and Bernice Hill. She is survived by her brother Paul C (Ada) Fox, Inverness, FL, and various nieces and nephews.
Verdonna was born March 11, 1928. She resided in Fort Wayne most of her life until health issues forced her to relocate near her niece, Allyson Witt, in Kendallville, Indiana. She worked as a secretary at Zollner's and as administrative assistant throughout her 50-year career. For over 43 years she volunteered at the Fort Wayne Botanical Gardens.
One of Verdonna's strongest passions was being a member of Sigma Phi Gamma International Sorority, a women's friendship/philanthropic sorority. She gave 70 years of service to her Fort Wayne community and many national/international service projects, the Easter Seals/ARC of NE Indiana as a principal project in Fort Wayne. Verdonna held many offices at both the chapter level, as well as the Province level. She was blessed with many sorority sisters/friends over her years of service and will be missed by her chapter, Delta Rho, sisters immensely and others across the United States and Canada.
