A beautiful soul to her family and friends, Joan Teague Fox, passed away on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center after a very brief illness.
She was born on December 3, 1947, in Alexander County, to Robert and Marie Sipe Teague, who preceded her along with her beloved husband, Clifford Fox; a brother, Kelsy Teague; a niece, Amber Slaughter; a brother-in-law, Coke Harrelson; and sister-in-law, Kindola Dagenhart.
