Elaine D. Fox

January 13, 1966 ~ March 21, 2022 (age 56) 56 Years Old


Elaine Dorene Fox, 56 of Portage, passed away Monday, March 21, 2021 at Agrace Hospice in Madison after a Hypoglycemia induced brain seizure. She grew up in Lake Tomahawk, Wisconsin.

As a little girl, Elaine learned basic carpentry skills while hanging out with her dad, who was a general building contractor on many job sites. Beginning in early childhood, she enjoyed bare-back horse riding through the woods of northern Wisconsin, going as fast as the horse could run. Elaine received her Nursing Assistant certification in 1989 and was last employed at Montello Care Center. 

While at her hillside home of rural Portage, Eliane provided a good life and love for three neglected and abused horses until the end of their days. Throughout her life, Elaine found beauty in nature and the wildlife around her. She raised numerous pets and beloved cats. Some living to ages of 17, 19, and 21 plus years. A thoughtful mother, Elaine raised a wonderful son. When she wasn’t caring for her family, Elaine often spent time nurturing a small garden of green beans, peas, peppers, and tomatoes. All who spent time with Elaine benefited from her advocacy of fresh food and a healthy diet.

Survivors include her husband Randell; son Philip (Holly) Larson; granddaughter Violet; brothers Leon (Gaylene) Larson, Loren (Denise) Larson, and Aaron (Julie) Larson. She was preceded in death by her parents Earl and Alice (Voegeli) Larson; sisters Sharon Dunbar and Susanne Cardinal, and brother Melvin Larson.
