Sandra Louise Beares (Fox)

Sandy marched to her own drumbeat and followed her heart.  After growing up in Baltimore and graduating from Parkville High School, she started on her life’s journey that took her to California, Washington State, Georgia and finally Arizona where she lived her dream of raising horses, dogs, cats and chickens. Pneumonia and a rare bacterial infection took her life within a week and she died on December 2, 2017.

She was the daughter of Benjamin H. Fox and E. Elizabeth Fox (Roderick) of Baltimore.  She is survived by her two children, Michelle Dunay Vesely (Beares) of California and Kevin Fitzgerald Beares of Seattle, Washington; seven grandchildren include Anne-Alyse Dunay Balz, Alexandra Katherine Vesely, Haven Beares, Schuyler Beares, Soleil Beares, Ava Jolie Morrison, and Gia Michone Morrison; and two great grandchildren Mckenzie Serene Balz and Riley Anne Balz.  Her surviving siblings are Brad Fox of Aberdeen, Patricia Kelbaugh of Gaithersburg, Stephen Fox, and Paul Fox of Baltimore.  Her larger family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews are mostly from Frederick where her mom and dad grew up.

Although Sandy will be missed by us all, we are thankful for her life she shared with us and her love of family and animals. There is a special star in heaven that shines with her beauty.  May she Rest in Peace.
