Obituary

Katheryn “Katie” Davis Fox was the greatest wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend that anyone could hope to have, at least in the eyes of one family. Katie left her beautiful mortal life on February 9, 2021, after years of living with Alzheimer’s disease.

Katie was born to Ralph and Moselle Davis on February 15, 1946 in Lehi, Utah. Her dad was a sheep rancher, and Katie’s nurturing and caring nature could be seen early in life as she hand-fed and reared many baby lambs. This love for sheep continued throughout her life and was displayed throughout her home. While attending Lehi High School, Katie was a cheerleader, a talented seamstress who received many awards (including the Utah Miss Wool award), and a straight-A student, which earned her a scholarship to Utah State University.

Katie met her husband, Ken, while at Utah State. She had so impressed her “dorm dad,” Ken’s brother, that he encouraged Ken to go and ring her buzzer. We are not sure how Ken managed to do it, but somehow he convinced this angel to marry him in the Salt Lake Temple. Katie decided to put aside her personal career aspirations to support Ken and be an amazing wife and later mother. They have loved each other ever since. After Ken graduated from college, they moved to California where they had the opportunity to live in Glendale, San Diego, El Centro, Merced, San Diego (again), Temecula, and then Escondido. Ken and Katie were married for 54 years in this life. In a story of unwavering love, Ken stayed right by Katie’s side as she suffered through the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease.

Katie had a special love for children and waited many years for the arrival of her own: Christopher, Benjamin, Ryan, and Amy (who all think they were her favorite). Not only was Katie the best mom ever, but she was also a devoted grandma to 17 grandchildren. They will remember her for her genuine love, her hugs, back-tickling, and for bringing a smile and sparkle into each of their lives.

Katie personified love and compassion. She cared about other people and treated them with kindness. Her sincere love for people affected everyone she met for the better. Katie served diligently as ward and stake Primary president, Relief Society president twice, and Young Women’s president. She served three church service missions with Ken, at the bishop’s storehouse twice and at a young single adult branch. Katie loved Jesus and truly fed His sheep.

Katie is survived by her loving husband, Ken; her children Christopher, Benjamin, Ryan, and Amy; 17 grandchildren; and her caring brother, Don Davis. Katie’s parents, Ralph and Moselle Davis; and her sister, Marilyn Chilton, preceded her in death and are probably enjoying her company right now.

My heart is full of memories of Katie. We spent most of our spare time together all through elementary school, high school and for two years at Utah State University. We were cheerleaders together, worked in student government, sang in a group of friends for school occasions, were members of the National Honor Society, members of the Homemakers group, were in the pep club together, took many of the same school classes and and spent time with other good friends. We spent time at each other’s homes and knew each of our families as well as our own. We felt like sisters. Katie was always kind and caring. She was always thoughtful of me and my concerns and needs. We helped each other through problems and supported each other in all our concerns. I could not have had a better friend! Her life means so much to me. She was one of my greatest blessings. Vicki Evans Rasmussen

Katie, was a dear sweet friend. When my family moved to Rancho Bernardo she adopted me into her care circle, which she did everywhere she went. She boosted my morale everyday we walked, or served together or went to Taco Bell up the hill from our homes. I loved my Katie. She is truly sanctified in her trials and beauty of service. God has called back a valiant daughter. I mourn for the family and the world. She will be missed.

I feel very sad that I cannot be there with you. I really wanted to be able to see everyone and honor Katie. Lynnette and I love Kate very much. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and sister. She always looked for the best in others and would find something nice to say. She not only made me feel loved, but also liked. She will be missed.

Katie was a dear friend. It's hard to think of anyone better. Such a loving, giving, person. We spent 8 years of walking in the morning on Bear Creek in Merced, early enough for her to go home and make breakfast for her family. She asked me to be her counselor when she was a RS President. I have the fondest of memories when I think of her, Ken and children.
