Carol Easton Fox, planner, analyst

Began medical-claims business

INDIAN HILL - Like many, Carol Easton Fox experienced the frustration of understanding a medical insurance bill.

A graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Business Administration, she knew that if she found it challenging, others would, too. So she started a business - Medical Claim Services.

Mrs. Fox died Monday of a cellulitis infection at Bethesda North Hospital. The Indian Hill resident was 62.

She was propelled by a "personal sense of compassion to meet the needs of others," said her friend, Paul Sittenfeld of East Walnut Hills.

An accomplished pianist, Mrs. Fox was a "splendid mix of talent and kindness," Sittenfeld said.

She was a financial planner for the past 25 years.

Survivors include her husband, Robert D. Fox; two sisters, Sally Easton Humphries of Mount Carmel and Linda Mack of Milford; her father, Paul Easton of Montgomery; and three stepchildren, Tammy Fox and Paul Fox II, both of downtown, and Catherine Fox of Ames, Iowa.

Visitation is 4-7 p.m. Friday at Craver-Riggs Funeral Home, 529 Main St., Milford. The funeral is 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Norman Chapel, Spring Grove Cemetery. Entombment follows at the cemetery.

Memorials: Kidney Foundation of Greater Cincinnati, 2200 Victory Parkway, Cincinnati 45214.
