She was born July 29, 1923, in Lynchburg, Va., the daughter of the late William Malcolm MORRISSETTE and Maude BOWMAN MORRISSETTE. She graduated from Lynchburg's E. C.

She married Charles Edward FULCHER on June 22, 1960. They were together for 49 years until his death in 1999. Their son, Bill, was born in 1953.
