Nancy Fox Aurentz Elmore died Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2005, after a long illness.
Although beset with medical problems in recent years, all those who visited and listened carefully could see and hear the echoes of a great friend and loving wife and mother. She will be missed by all those who received her home-grown tomatoes, enjoyed her beautiful flowers or received a kiss and hug as a reminder of her steadfast love.
Nancy was born Sept. 23, 1923, as the second daughter of Forrest and Irene Blake Fox of Oak Hill. After helping build airplane engines during World War II, she married James V. Aurentz in 1946. They moved to the Oak Grove community in 1955, where her desire to improve her family's home resulted in her constant addition or rearrangement of rooms--mostly on her own. Her sons frequently found coming home from school an adventure as they discovered "which wall was missing today." She was very creative and always tried to do her best at whatever she attempted. Many people have received her gifts of intricate crocheted pieces, beautiful ceramic figurines, hand-sewn quilts and carefully refinished furniture and those great tomatoes.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband, James Aurentz, in 1969; her second husband, Cody Elmore, in 1980; and three sisters, Virginia Fox, Carolyn Rogers and Ann Balding.
She is survived by her children, French O. Aurentz of Beckley and Forrest W. Aurentz of Yorktown, Va. Her grandchildren include James, Eric and Marlena Aurentz, the children of French and Patricia Aurentz of Beckley, and Carey Aurentz Cummins of Durham, N.C., and Catherine Aurentz Griffith of Richmond, Va., both the children of Forrest and Janet Aurentz. She is also survived by two brothers, Bill Fox of North Carolina and Bud Fox of Oak Hill; and a sister, Sue Fox of Oak Hill.
Friends may visit Nancy 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at Oak Grove Christian Church. Service will be conducted by Kenneth Overdorf immediately following at 8 p.m. at the church. A small graveside service will be conducted the following day at Oak Grove Cemetery.
Nancy will be loved as long as people view her artistic labors, remember her generous gifts and cherish her lasting friendships. She loved us all and we are better for it.
Arrangements by Calfee Funeral Home, Beckley.5,4 
Burial*23 Sep 2005 Her body was interred on 23 Sep 2005 at Beckley, Raleigh Co, WV, at Oak Grove Cem.5
