Ruthann Fox

July 25, 1948 — July 10, 2023

Ruthann Estelle “Ruth” Fox, of Huntington Beach, passed away on July 10th, 2023, at Saddleback hospital, Laguna Hills surrounded by loved ones, listening to her favorite music, and sharing cherished memories. She hung on wanting to be with her family until her body could no longer endure any more pain.

Ruthann was born on July 25th, 1948, in South Gate.  Throughout her life, she dedicated herself to serving others, whether it was as a waitress, as a retail grocery store employee, or the immense love and support she bestowed upon her family. She was passionate about her work and developed strong, meaningful connections with her co-workers. Ruthann was a loving, loyal, tough, hardworking and selfless individual who found joy in the simple things. She was known for being free-spirited and a dedicated fan of Elvis Presley whom she was lucky enough to meet. Ruthann was passionate about music, dancing, gardening, cooking, and animals, especially her grand puppies. Above all, her children were her greatest blessings and what she was most proud of.  Towards the end of her life, she moved to live close to the beach to enjoy her golden years.

Ruthann is survived by her son Mark Scott; daughter Kimberly Chaney; daughter Kourtny Martin; daughter-in-law Jessica Scott, and son-in-law David Chaney. A memorial service for Ruthann will be held at Forest Lawn cemetery on July 21st at 12:30 p.m. Family and friends are invited to join in honoring her life and legacy. Flowers are welcome and those unable to attend may express their condolences or share treasured memories on the memorial website.
