DeEtta was born February 18, 1917 in Holly Springs, Iowa to John H. and Grace O. Cory. She is survived by her Granddaughter, Judy Shultheiss. 

DeEtta was born in Iowa, and grew up in Sioux City Iowa. She later married Robert F. Fox (Bob), lived in Iowa a few more years, and later moved to Pasadena, California, and Phoenix, Arizona a few years after that. (Bob was a U.S. Postal Inspector). They moved to Denver, Colorado in 1972, and later lived in Littleton, and then Aurora. Bob passed away in 1992. DeEtta was a loving Mother to Patricia Ann Fox, and stayed at home with her while she was growing up. She was a wonderful artist, and created many beautiful oil paintings, pencil drawings, pen drawings, sculptures, knitted clothing, and many other arts and crafts.
