Pauline H. (King) Hoffman Fox, 94, Sheridan, passed away peacefully Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018 at Harbour Manor Health and Living in Noblesville.

Born Nov. 25, 1923 at home on the family farm just west of Terhune, she was the daughter of the late Henry Bert and Elzora (Wilson) King.

After graduating from Sheridan High School with the Class of 1941, she continued forward with her education at Indiana Business College. After graduating from I.B.C., she took a position working for International Harvester. After about two years with the company, she would take her leave to focus on raising her family. When the kids were grown, she hired on with VanCamp (which would later become True Value) Hardware, enjoying a long and happy career working in their distribution center offices.

She was lucky enough to find love twice in her life. On Nov. 26, 1944 she married the love of her life, Charles A. "Chuck" Hoffman. They spent 37 wonderful years together and raised a beautiful family. He preceded her in death on July 15, 1980. She then married the second love of her life, James Robert "Bob" Fox in September of 1985. They spent 32 years by each other's side, greatly increasing the size of the family she loved so very much. Mr. Fox passed on Dec. 6, 2017.

When she had some time to herself, she loved to tend to her garden and look after her flowers. She also enjoyed playing cards with her Euchre Club whenever they could all get together. She had a sharp eye for antiques. She liked looking through stores, trying to find those special hidden gems that you just don't seem to see very often. She was a member of the Terhune United Methodist Church and the Boone County Extension Homemakers.

Family was very important. She felt very blessed to have such a large extended family to call her very own.
