Celebrations are still in order, especially for years of faithfully living for Christ! Zyrada Fox celebrated her 100th birthday with family on May 9. As a young adult Zyrada Meads married W. A. Fox. Together they served 30.5 years at New Zion Baptist Church, now known as Hamilton West Baptist Church located in Hamilton, Ohio.
Mrs. Fox remains rather active and in good health today. She resides with her daughter and son-in-law Karen and John Cochran of West Chester. She attends church, enjoys occasional family gatherings, and loves time spent with grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
With 100 years behind her, some celebrations remain as memories. Her son Ralph, a West Point Academy graduate, died in 1989 in London, England. Her husband, Pastor W. A. Fox, passed away in 1994.
