SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. - Hundreds of people gathered to remember Vermont Senator Sally Fox on Sunday.

Her fellow legislators say her helping hand to those in need will be missed.

Her funeral was held at Temple Sinai in South Burlington. Fox died Friday after a more than year-long battle with cancer.

Her friends describe her as compassionate, strong, and hardworking.

She began her legislative career more than 25-years ago. House Speaker Shap Smith says she was a great role model for all legislators.

A resolution will be read in her honor this coming Wednesday in the senate.
Fox was 62.
