Aldine Rae Kennedy Fouse, 93, went to join her husband and son’s in heaven on Thursday, Aug. 3, 2017. She was born on January 16, 1924 in Akron, Ohio to Fannie and Howard Kennedy. As a child she was such a good student, that she skipped two grades and graduated at 16yrs of age. She played piano in high school and at an early age helped to take care of her family when her mom got Rheumatoid arthritis. After high school, she attended a year of Business College before WWII started. Throughout her life she worked various jobs as a homemaker, secretary and bookkeeper. She worked many years for Roy Owen and Co. She loved to say how she worked until she was 83, which was true. She married her high school sweetheart Fred “Russ” Fouse in 1945 and they were married 43 years until his passing. They had many friends and enjoyed socializing, dancing and traveling. They started their lives in Akron, then moved to Farmington, Flagstaff, and Tucson and finally back to Farmington for Russ’s work. They raised 4 children; Randy, Jan, Rusty and Judi. There always was a lot of love and laughter in their lives. Aldine, being the social person that she was, was a member of many organizations and held most offices in these organizations. Beta Sigma Phi, Desk and Derrick, First United Methodist Church women’s group, Elks Lodge women’s group and Emmaus group to name a few. She also liked to attend as many plays, musicals and community events that she could find always with her faithful friends at her side. Special love to Irma, Edna, Eileen and Margie. Aldine was a devout woman of God, and loving wife, mother, grandma and “gg”(great grandma). She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
