April 12, 2003

Edith B. Fuller, a retired registered nurse who worked in several area nursing homes, died of liver failure Tuesday at her Timonium residence. She was 70.

She was born Edith Hall Bramlette and raised in Greenville, S.C., where she graduated from high school. She earned her bachelor's degree in nursing from the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg's School of Nursing in 1953.

Mrs. Fuller was married in 1955 to William C. Fuller Jr., a Westinghouse Electric Corp. electrical engineer, who died in 1991.

In 1957, the couple moved to Baltimore and later moved to Timonium.

Mrs. Fuller worked as a nurse at College Manor Nursing Home in Lutherville, and later for many years at Long Green Nursing Home. She retired in the early 1980s.

An accomplished pianist and accordionist, she had a particular interest in old gospel hymns, which she enjoyed singing.

Mrs. Fuller also collected dolls, which she displayed in her home. She was also an avid reader of novels, autobiographies and the Bible.

She was a longtime member of Valley Baptist Church where she was also a member of the Ruth Sunday School Class.

Services for Mrs. Fuller were held at the church yesterday.

She is survived by five sons, William F. Fuller of Greer, S.C., Robert G. Fuller of Brentwood, Tenn., Gerald M. Fuller of Bel Air, Dean S. Fuller of Owings Mills and Daniel D. Fuller of Timonium; a daughter, Judith A. Gerhart of Quarryville, Pa.; a sister, Lucia B. Ulmer of Greensboro, N.C.; and eight grandchildren.
