Beatrice L. FULTON

Beatrice CUNNINGHAM, the second daughter of Pliny F. and Marietta S. CUNNINGHAM, was born at Ottumwa, Iowa, on the 16th day of February, 1865, and departed this life at Akron, Ohio, on May 28th, 1943 aged seventy-eight years. She received her primary education in the public schools of Centerville, Iowa, and her collegiate training at Parsons College from which institution she graduated in June, 1885.

On September 5th, 1885, she was married to Charles D. LEGGETT of Fairfield, Iowa. To this union were born eight children, four of whom attained their majority. A son, Richard C. LEGGETT of Fairfield, Iowa, a daughter Mrs. Ruth E. McKEE of St. Paul, Minnesota, and a daughter, Dr. Elizabeth A. LEGGETT of Kent, Ohio, survive her. Another son, Lt. George P. LEGGETT, was killed during the first World War by an airplane accident on January 29, 1919. Charles D. LEGGETT died April 4th, 1922.

On November 24, 1926, she was married to Charles J. FULTON of Fairfield, Iowa, who preceded her in death on December 6, 1937.

Mrs. FULTON was possessed of great energy and mental ability. From the year 1881, when she came to Fairfield as a college girl, she was always actively identified with the civic life of the community and she always retained her interest in this city. She was a charter member of the Elzevir Society of Parsons College of the Ladies Improvement Society, of the Fairfield Golf club, of the Wit and Wisdom Club, of the Shakespeare Club, of the Book Club and of the Bird club. As President of the Fairfield Woman's Club she was instrumental in the rehabilitation and furnishing of the McElhinny House. In 1940 she went to Kent, Ohio, to be with her daughter, Dr. Elizabeth A. LEGGETT, but she always retained her residence in Fairfield.

Mrs. FULTON's educational training and her acquaintance with current literature were unusual. She had reviewed many books and less than six weeks prior to ther death she gave a review of Alice Duer Miller's "The White Cliffs" before the Woman's Club of Kent, Ohio. Her sympathetic and sincere interest in people and in public affairs made her a host of friends. Her influence will be greatly missed.
