Holly LaShell Fulton (who was affectionately known by her siblings as “Maw” or “Sue Hellen” was born October 29, 1968 in Cincinnati, OH to George Fulton (who preceded her in death) and Nina Fulton-Williams. Holly was the third child born to George and Nina.
At an early age, Holly attended church and accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. As an adult, Holly became a member at Bethel A.M.E. Church in Lockland, OH where she sang faithfully in the church choir. Holly maintained her relationship with the Lord until her failing health no longer allowed her to physically attend church services.
Holly attended Lockland Middle School and later went to Fredrick Breyers where she graduated. Holly enjoyed listening to music. Her favorite music artist was Fantasia. She also loved to bowl, dance and play basketball. In Holly’s mind, she could dunk and beat anyone who played against her. Holly loved to walk around the neighborhoods in Wyoming and Lockland where she enjoyed buying jewelry at Stan’s Pawn Shop and visiting local stores and restaurants in Wyoming.
Holly was a self-proclaimed “Diva”. She took pride in her appearance and made sure her hair and nails were always done. Holly admired the latest trending hair styles, nail art and wearing big eyelashes. Although those things enhanced her outward beauty, she was just as beautiful inside.
Holly had a great memory. She could recall all her sibling’s birthdays and never missed an opportunity to remind them about the approaching day. Holly memorized phone numbers and would not hesitate in giving you a call early morning, noon or night. It would not be uncommon to get a call from Holly at 3:00 am just to talk. We will miss those early morning wake-up calls.
Holly loved giving God praise rather it was through a dance, when she was able to stand on her feet or clap her hands. She also loved singing gospel songs with her sister Lydia. Amongst her favorites were “I’m a Soldier” and “I’m Building a Home”.
Holly never met a stranger and delighted everyone with her joyful spirit and witty personality. She was always concerned about the well-being of others. When Holly was in the hospital, she called mom to say, “God is Good, he brought me out the woods!” Holly always gave God credit and praise for his excellence. Despite how sick Holly became, she lived everyday with joy. She never showed her illness on her face. She would simply smile and say, God is Good!
Holly loved her family and she was loved by all of them too. She leaves to cherish her memory; her loving mother, Nina Fulton-Williams; siblings, Garnail (Donna), Dale (Kelly), Kendall, Kimberly, Bruce, Lydia, Ivan, Triska, April, Titus (Tonika), Angel (David, Jr.) Goins, Brooklyn, Robin Reese, Gloria “Kitty” (Kelvin) Waver, Ricardo (Denise), Tony “Mickey” (Cheryl), Julie Wright, Greg (Jackie) Wright and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
