Mrs. Fuller enjoyed snowmobiling, crocheting and cooking, but most of all visiting  with her sisters Anna and Helen, and reminiscing of their earlier days growing up.

Mrs. Fuller is also survived by nine great-grandchildren: Kenneth Goodell, Jazmyn Sipe, Darian Holden, Hunter Briggs, Talynn Briggs, Paige Austin, Payton Austin, Devan John Stevens and Zachary Alan Stevens, who is in the Air Force stationed in Arizona.  Also survived by four great-great grandchildren: Kyeara Goodell, Raelynn Moore, Kenzi Goodell and Olivia Grover as well as a fifth who is on the way in March 2020. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She leaves behind her two precious cats Tony and Blue, who were given to her by her grandson, Vern, many years ago as a birthday present and are now being taken care of by her grandson, Kyle.

At her request there will be no calling hours. Burial will take place in the spring of 2020 at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements are in the care of the Davis Memorial Chapel of Springfield.
