      Obit :
      JANE FOX LIEPE, 93, of LAKEWOOD, died Sunday, April 9 [2006]. She was born in Bradford, Pa., and lived in Lake Worth Fla., before moving to lakewood in 1970.
      Mrs. Liepe was predeceased by her parents, Howard E. and Blanche Crooks Fox; and her husband, Wilhelm “William” E. Liepe, in 1972.
      Friends may call from 9 a.m. Monday until the funeral service at 9:30 a.m. at Weatherhead Young Funeral Home, 885 Mantoloking Road, Brick. Interment will take place Tuesday at Oakhill Cemetery, Bradford, Pa.

      Jane Fox Liepe tells a story about the single trip she remembers to visit “Aunt Alice” in Dublin, NH when she was either 15 or 16 (1927, 1928). Elswhere she thought she might have been only 8 [1920]. The family was en route to Boston in Howard’s Stanley Steamer. [Note: the last year for manufacture of Stanley Steamers was 1927.] Apparently the Steamer broke down and had to be repaired. The family went on (by train?) to visit the Appletons in Dublin. She remember being enchanted by Francis, a very handsome young man. She also remembers extensive blueberrying, which places the month of the visit at July or August. “Aunt Alice” [Fox Appleton] made blueberry panckakes, blueberry pies, etc which she remembers as delicious.

      A. Faulkner remembers that he and his father W. E. Faulkner, Jr. visited "Uncle Howard" in Morristown, N.J. in about 1955 when he was about 10 on a day trip from Cranford. The Foxes had a very clever dog who would bark in response to questions, and could read the slightest gesture you would make unselfconsciously, so that like the horse "Clever Hans," he appeared to be able to read your mind, doing the most complex math problems-that is if YO U knew the answer. Helen Sarr confirmed my recollection of this dog. I'm afraid I paid too little attention to Howard, and too much to the dog.
      Update: I spoke on January 6, 2006 to Howard’s daughter, Jane Fox Liepe [pronounced “Lippy”] and she verified that this was her dog, a registered shelty named “Wee Wendy of the Poconos.” Howard Fox was staying with the Lippes en route to his place in Florida. Obviously I must have met Jane Fox Liepe at that time but I have no recollection of her. In any case, on the same trip my father and I also visited a museum in Morristown that had a uniform supposedly worn by George Washington.

      Jane Fox Liepe tells that she was married during the war [WWII], when gas and tire rationing was in effect. Her husband to be, Wilhelm Liepe, had to save up all his ration coupons to get enoght gas to travel from New Jersey to Bradford, PA for the wedding, and even at that he had tire trouble.

      Jane described herself as being one of the white-haired Foxes, meaning that her hair had turned white by her twenties. She says this was the same for her grandfather, Francis Harry Fox. She also onfirmed that his name was variously Francis Harry of Harry Francis.
