Loving, nurturing, family historian, great cook, no-nonsense, hard-working, strong, independent…. All words to describe the one some called mother, grandma, aunt, sister, cousin, or friend. After walking in her house, you would receive two things: a home cooked meal and a life lesson. Those who knew her loved her very much. However, it was the Creator who loved her most of all…..
In the early morning of August 8th, God spoke to her and said, “Well done, my good and faithful servant; thou has been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord”.
She is survived by her three children: James Fulks, Enterprise, AL; Calvin (Romina) Fulks, Marshallville, GA; Lisa (Vincent) Hinton, McDonough, GA; five grandsons: Michael Germany (Kim), Oglethorpe, GA; Detereayas Fulks, Ideal, GA; Christian Fulks, Macon, GA; Jordan Hinton and Matthew Hinton, McDonough, GA. five sisters: Ethel Mae Davis, Oglethorpe, GA; Ruthie Dean Perry, Detroit, MI; Etta Mae (Joe) Harris, Detroit, MI; Joyce Marie (Larry) Russell, Montezuma, GA; Barbara Ann Fulks, Detroit, MI; brother-in-law, Joe Smith, Oglethorpe, GA; sister-in-law, Obie Tookes, Detroit, MI; one aunt Annie Ruth (Jacob) Parker of Macon, GA; daughter-in-law, Sonnie Fulks, Macon, GA; two nieces she raised Annie Leola Fulks and Loretta Harries, Detroit, MI; special companion, James Willie Kelly, Richland, GA, godson, Terrell McKenzie, Fort Lauderdale, FL; special cousins, Margie Neil Worthy and Curtis Turner , Montezuma, GA; a host of beloved nieces, nephews, and friends.
