Obituary for Leta May Fulmer (Marsh)

Leta May  Fulmer (Marsh)
Fulmer, Leta May (Marsh) passed away on July 24, 2018 surrounded by her loving family in her 100th year. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family, born to parents, the late Scott and Lydie (Royles) Marsh. She is survived by her three children, Brooke (Judith) Fulmer, Marsha (Albert) Gates and Sherrill (Raymond) Lindsay; her eight grandchildren, Gwen, Grayson and Marshall Fulmer, Aaron, Andrew and Shaun Gates, Rachelle and Julia Lindsay and fourteen great grandchildren. Leta was predeceased by her husband Donald Wesley; her brother, Robert Marsh and her sister, Helen Polley. Born in Trenton, she travelled to Toronto in her mid-twenties and assisted in the war effort by working in a factory assembling Mosquito bombers. Married in Toronto to Donald, they moved back to the Maritimes at war’s end and made their home in New Brunswick and then finally settling in Truro for the next sixty years. Leta was a lover of the English language maintaining a broad range of vocabulary and intrinsic understanding of grammar and syntax. She was a prolific writer of poetry and an occasional short story and she consequently had a great love of crosswords and scrabble. She had an unconditional love for her family and led a family centered life. She will be greatly missed by family and all who loved her. She spent her later years at Cedarstone Enhanced Care where she received exceptional personal care with exemplary consideration from the staff for which the family is eternally grateful. The family also wish to thank Shannex for supporting the staff in creating this environment. Visitation will be held on Friday, July 27th from 2 – 3 pm followed by the Memorial service at 3pm in Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St, Truro. Interment will be held on Saturday, July 28th at 11am in Hillside Cemetery, Trenton, N.S. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or charity of choice.
