Cathy Trombley Fox

Cathy Trombley Fox unexpectedly passed on Saturday, July 10, 2021, at Saranac Village at Will Rogers in Saranac Lake.

She was born on Dec. 7, 1945, in Tupper Lake.

Cathy was a native Tupper Laker. She was married to her late husband Robert Fox until his passing after a long illness.

Cathy had a gypsy spirit! She loved to travel with Bob. No man’s land was Cathy’s land. Be it by cruise, ship, plane or car, she was on the road. Much of her time was spent on the Florida coast. She loved the water! She traveled to Michigan often to visit her husband’s family. Her summers were spent with the family in New York. She and Bob enjoyed a little cottage on the river. Together, they retrofitted the cottage — dotted with flowers, pine trees, hummingbirds and knickknacks. Sunsets were spent holding hands on the dock with Bob. Cooking was not her first choice, but dinner out was on her menu. She did make a mean pot of chicken and dumplings. Cathy recently stated that she lived her life on her terms … as it should be.

Survivors include her sons David and Allyson Peets of St. Regis Falls and Todd Peets of Fulton, New York; stepsons Doug, Dan and Dave Fox of Michigan; brothers Charles, Nelson, Mike and Bernie Trombley; grandchildren Alexandra, Christine, Kayla, Brandi, Todd Jr., Heather, Michell, Kelly, Jessica, Devin, Derek, Eric, Amy, Joseph and Christopher; and great-grandchildren Grey, Karlee, Cora, Jace, Eddie, Charley, Silas, Calian, Luca, Aiden, Cameron, Kendall, Brylie, Aspen and Saylor.

Memorial donations may be sent to the Falls Cat Palace and Rescue — Cathy’s favorite place — at 10 Mill St., St. Regis Falls, NY 12980 (518-856-9474).
