    Sincere thoughts and prayers going out to Brenda and family. “Mrs. Fullmer” was the source of fond memories from our Girl Scout days. As an adult I had a hard time calling her Betty! She always gave me that quirky look and then we would laugh. Loved that lady!

    My sympathy to the entire family. Betty was always such a sweet person and had a great laugh. I still remember playing at my Grandpa and Grandma Ablett’s, who lived next door to Fullmer’s, with Fullmer and Fritsche kids. Good memories.
