On March 22, 1957, Theola was born to Guy and Grace Fox, and that’s when the world rejoiced! She was raised with the country lifestyle in Mandaree, ND, the youngest of 15 children.
Theola graduated from Mandaree High School in 1974. (YAY! Go Mandaree Warriors!!!) She started her higher education at Denver Colorado Barnes Business College for 3 years. She moved back to New Town and worked for the tribe and at Fort Berthold Housing Authority. From October 1992 to 1995 she started working for AMERIND Insurance in Washington, DC and was then transferred to Albuquerque, NM. Within her 21 years in Albuquerque, Theola enjoyed her career and paved her way to become the Director of Underwriting with six underwriters on her team. She relished in the southwest culture and atmosphere with her friends and family.
She continued forward with University of Phoenix where she received her Associates of Arts in Business in 1999. In 2002, she received her Bachelor of Science in Business Management.
In 2013 she retired from AMERIND and moved back home to Mandaree. She then moved back to her home in New Town after it was remodeled. During her time of retirement, she enjoyed going to powwows, playing bingo, attending birthday parties and gift giving; and of course, gambling at many different casinos. Another favorite past time was attending concerts, her last being Slipknot where she said she had a rocking exhilarating experience. Theola was a world traveler; from seeing Kangaroos in Sydney, Australia to touching the ancient stones of the Roman Colosseum and Parthenon of Athens, Greece.
Theola adored her handsome son and granddaughters with all of her heart and soul. She loved and was loved by all of her family and friends. Theola touched the hearts of everyone she came in contact with, with her boisterous laugh and contagious smile.
Survived by, son Jude Fox; granddaughters Rainy Rose, Jada Dawn, and Jullysa; brother Dennis Fox (Sandra Fox); 3 sisters Belinda Beston, C.A Wolf Eyes, Arla Muzzy (Don Muzzy); and all nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.
