Ruth Fullerton Age 84, of Monroeville, passed away on May 24, 2016, after a struggle with cancer, surrounded by her four surviving children. She was born August 3, 1931 in Stuttgart, Germany. She married Jacques C. Fullerton in Germany, giving birth to her first child, Karl, who sadly passed shortly after birth. She then bravely journeyed to America alone- not knowing the language or a soul- until Jacques’ return from his tour of duty of the Korean War. Once reunited, they settled in and raised four children, Marge Edgar (James), Jackie Fullerton-Baginski (Raymond), James Fullerton (Sandi), and Joni Batchen (Jeff). Along with her children she is survived by nine grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Jacques, infant son Karl, grandson Douglas Beltz and parents Ella and Wilhelm. Ruth loved her family intensely. She was by her example, the gold standard for selfless, giving love. She was beloved by all, but passionately so by her children. Her presence will be sorely missed by family, friends and neighbors. She was active right up to the end. She loved baking and was sure to always bring dessert to family functions or to the neighbors to let them know she was thinking about them. She sewed, knitted and crocheted the loveliest baby items and donated them to Forbes Regional Hospital’s maternity ward and more recently donated many of her creations as a member of North American Martyr’s “Stitching Angels”. Friends are welcome to visit Friday from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. at the GENE H. CORL INC. FUNERAL CHAPEL AND CREMATION SERVICES OF MONROEVILLE, 4335 Northern Pike (412-372-2100). Additional visitation Saturday, May 28, 2016 from 10-11.a.m. followed by a service in the funeral chapel. Interment following in Restland Memorial Park. It is Ruth’s wish that instead of flowers, those who wish to remember her do so by contributing to their favorite charity. For more information, please visit www.corlfuneralchapel.com
