Mary Fuller Obituary
Mystic - Mary (Walker) Pennington Fuller, 87, of Mystic, died Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012, after a long illness.

She was preceded in death in 1989 by her first husband and father of her children, Philip Bond Pennington; and a sister, Joyce St. Germaine.

She is survived by her second husband, Daniel B. Fuller; six children, Anne Schultz and husband, Matt, Sarah Maxwell and husband, John, Jane Davis and husband, William, Mary Jessica Schmitt and husband, Frederick, James Pennington and wife, Deborah, and Philip Pennington and wife, Katharine; three stepchildren, Ashley Fuller, Noyes Fuller and Howard Fuller; 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Mary will be missed by sisters Eileen Bickley and husband, Robert, Hannah Walker, and Florence Boland; and brothers John Walker and wife, Kathleen, and James F. Walker Jr.

Mary was born in Buffalo, N.Y., on Feb. 24, 1925, daughter of James F. Walker Sr. and Anna (MacKillop) Walker. She grew up in Norwich, graduating from Norwich Free Academy in 1942, and graduated from Bryant College, Class of 1943. She married Philip, a Navy officer, in 1946. They retired to and lived in North Stonington until his death in 1989, following which she moved to Mystic. She loved to garden and to paint and spent much of the remainder of her life developing what heretofore had been a hidden talent, travelling, and developing friendships in the pursuit of her art. She was remarried to Daniel Fuller in 2002.

Mary loved her family, loved her geraniums, and loved her art as we all loved her. She will be sorely missed.

There will not be a visitation. A service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 9, 2012, at the North Stonington Congregational Church, immediately followed by burial at the Wheeler Cemetery, North Stonington.
