Marjorie W. Fullmer Obituary
Marjorie W. Fullmer, 94, of Blackfoot, ID peacefully passed away Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at Bingham Memorial Hospital with her family by her side.
Marge was born in Springville, Utah at the family home, on July 19, 1922 to John and Ella Whiting. She grew up in Springville in a family of four brothers and one sister. She enjoyed her time helping her father on the family farm and her mother in the kitchen. She learned to work hard at an early age. She also loved working with horses and spent many hours riding her horse on Mapleton Mountain. She graduated from Springville High School, where she participated in the band playing the clarinet and the piano.  
On July 19, 1940 she married Frank E. Fullmer in the Manti LDS Temple.
She was her husband's biggest cheerleader during his college days at Brigham Young University where he played basketball and throughout his professional basketball career. Later they lived in Logan, Utah and Cedar City, Utah where Frank was the head basketball coach at the college. They moved to Blackfoot, Idaho in which she resided until her death. She was a very dedicated mother and an excellent homemaker. She enjoyed going out every Saturday night with her husband and that time was known as date night.
Marge was known for her compassionate service and was a superb cook. She served as a Relief Society President. But one of her favorite callings was serving as a primary teacher for over 15 years. She was a dedicated visiting teacher and was know to bring treats and food on her visits. She was a visiting teacher up until her health did not allow her to get around, but she would still have her family take her to visit some of her families even after she was released as their visiting teacher. She raised a family of two girls and two boys. She enjoyed her kids and provided lots of support and love.
She enjoyed golfing and was part of the Blackfoot Women Golf Association for many years. She also bowled and was known for her strength and athletic abilities. Besides her family, her next greatest love was her horses. She was well known for the Arabian, Quarter and Thoroughbred horses she owned. She also had race horses and sponsored a world championship chariot racing team. She traveled around the country showing her Arabian horses and spent countless hours on the family ranch leading, feeding and caring for her horses and any animal that was in need.
She greatly enjoyed all her grandkids. She loved attending their recitals, performances, graduations, weddings, birthday parties and family reunions. She has kept every card that anybody has ever sent her. She was known to write many thank you notes and send many greeting cards to friends and family throughout her life.
Marge is survived by her sons, Frank J. (Bonnie) Fullmer of Middleton, Idaho and John (Vickie) Fullmer; daughter, Nicki (Gary) Jackson; and son-in-law, Sheridan Goodwin all of Blackfoot. She leaves behind 19 grandchildren; 56 great grandchildren; ten great great grandchildren; and many nephews and nieces.
She is preceded in death by her daughter, Glenna Goodwin (December 20, 1995); husband, Frank (March 12, 1998); parents; brothers, Jess, Ray, Mark and Jack; and her sister, Mary Sanford.
