    So many great memories of your mom. She impacted so many lives in Wolcott over the years. For me personally, I will always remember her driving Robbi and I to kindergarten, Purdue basketball camp or wherever we needed to go. She always gave of herself, so that our needs were met. I will ever by grateful to both of your parents for the years of friendship and memories. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers during this time.

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Marilyn. The Fulkerson family was very special to us during Jack’s ministry at Wolcott UMC. I talked to Marilyn a few months ago and we were planning on getting together when allowed. Please extend my love to all the family. Blessings and love. Ellen Rhoades

    Although we only met Marilyn and Ned once they moved here to Hoosier Village, we quickly came to know them as very friendly and special people. Particularly during the past year I have admired Marilyn so much for her continuous and loyal support of her dear Ned in our Health Center. Marilyn was a beautiful human being, and we will miss her very mcu.
