Doris A. Fullerton
Doris A. Fullerton, 93, of Charlotte, passed away Sunday, February 3, 2019, at Eaton Community Palliative Care with her family by her side. She was born at the family home on May 27, 1925, in Charlotte, the daughter of Phillip A. and Lula S. (Shumaker) Wehr. Doris graduated from Charlotte High School with the class of 1943. Soon after graduation she married the love of her life, Calvin Fullerton at the Center Eaton Church, just outside of Charlotte. Every year on their anniversary, Cal would give Doris a bouquet of roses containing as many roses as the number of years they were married. This got to be a rather large bouquet as the years passed. Doris grew up on the farm and developed a passion for agriculture. She began as a young lady raising sheep. As she began to raise a family she passed on her love of the farm to her children and grandchildren. They are proud to say that they still own a centennial farm homesteaded by Doris’s grandparents. Doris and Cal owned and operated Cal’s Western Store and Cal’s Mobile Service here in Charlotte. Doris also worked as an LPN at Hayes Green Beach Hospital. Doris loved to travel. Both she and Cal looked forward to their yearly trips to Acapulco and Las Vegas. In her free time, she adored spending time with her precious family and quilting.
Doris is survived by her children, Robert (Jeannette) Fullerton of Charlotte, Gordon (Tich) Fullerton of Charlotte Hall, Md., Kevin (Nancy) Fullerton of Charlotte; seven grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and brother, Max (Dorothy) Wehr of Charlotte.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband of 65 years, Cal in 2008; siblings, Elizabeth Crozier, Naomi Conard, Rolland Wehr, and Rex Wehr.
Funeral services were held on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, at Burkhead-Green-Kilgo Funeral Home, with Rev. Curtiss DeMars-Johnson officiating. Interment took place at Maple Hill Cemetery in Charlotte.
Those desiring, may make contributions in Doris’s honor to the Christmas Kiddies, 111 E. Lawrence Ave., Charlotte, MI 48813.
