Obituary for Mary Ellen Fulmer

MARY ELLEN FULMER, age 92, passed forward on Saturday, November 25, 2017. She was born in Canton, Ohio on July 7, 1925, the daughter of the late Ray Edward and Emma Marguerite (Yutzey) Fulmer and sister to the late Carl Fulmer. She was the last surviving member of her family.
Mary Ellen was a world traveler, having visited Europe, Central and South America, the Holy Land, Egypt, India, and Japan. She loved adventure, going on an archeological dig, rode in a hot air balloon, going white-water rafting down the Colorado River, and visiting a duded ranch out West.
In her early years she worked for Schumacher Lumber Company in Hartville, Ohio. She was a volunteer deputy sheriff with the Stark County Sheriff Department.
She came to Springfield in 1961 as a secretary at Hamma School of Theology where she was responsible to make pulpit assignments for the Ohio Synod, LCA. She retired from Wittenberg University having been a secretary in Advancement and Church Relations. For many years she was treasurer for Lutheran Week at Lakeside near Sandusky, Ohio. She also spent many volunteer hours at Mercy Medical Center.
She was a very active member of Grace Lutheran Church, singing in the choir, making lector assignments for many years, and volunteering every Friday afternoon in the church office. She was very appreciative of the love, support and visits from the ladies of the Hope Guild.
Mary Ellen’s friends would like to thank the Eaglewood Assisted Living and Care Center Staff for their loving friendship and care during her years of residence.
A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, November 28th at 2:00 p.m. in Grace Lutheran Church with the Rev. Daniel M. Powell officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service. Interment will be in St. Jacob’s Lutheran Cemetery, Hartville, Ohio. Memorial gifts may be sent to Grace Lutheran Church, 1801 St. Paris Pike, Springfield, Ohio 45504.
