Lucia Irene "Lu" Fulmore – 90, Economy. With saddened, yet grateful hearts, we announce the passing of Lucia Irene (Durning) Fulmore, who passed away on Saturday morning, December 3, 2022, with the love of her life for over 70 years and her family by her side. Born in Lower Five Islands, Lucia was a daughter of the late Douglas and Gladys (Taylor) Durning.

Lu attended high school in Bass River where she met her future husband, and then went on to graduate from Nova Scotia Normal College in 1951, teaching in several schools in her career, some of which were one-room. She married her true love, Burchell on May 21, 1955, in Five Islands. After Burchell graduated from Nova Scotia Technical College in 1957, work took them to Hillsborough, New Brunswick, followed by a move back to Halifax in 1960 where they resided until 1986, at which time they returned home to Economy.

Lucia was very active in UCW, both at Edgewood United in Halifax and Economy United. She was a member of Ladies Auxiliary of Economy Fire Brigade and Economy Clam Festival. Lu was always willing to help out in her community when called upon. She treasured all the friendships that were made throughout her lifetime, especially in Clayton Park and Economy. The antique car community in which she and Burchell were very active throughout North America was another source of great friendships.

Lucia is survived by her husband of 67 years, Burchell; sons, David (Velda), James (Kathy) and Mike (Cindy). She will be sadly missed by her eight grandchildren, Mark Fulmore (Sandra), Brett Fulmore, Michelle Veenhuis (Ryan), Jamie Fulmore (Claire), Jeffrey Fulmore, Taylor Fulmore (Andrew) and Lucy Fulmore and Ellen Fulmore and their mother, Alison Graham. Grammie Lu will also be missed by her seven great-grandchildren, Addison Fulmore, Olivia Veenhuis, Andrew Veenhuis, Felicity Veenhuis, Cameron Fulmore, Jackson Fulmore, Caleb Fulmore. She is also survived by loving sister, Nancy Cota; sister-in-law, Joan Fulmore; many nieces and nephews. Along with her parents, she was predeceased by her eldest son, Doug Fulmore; sisters, Eleanor Ellis (Doug), Nathalie Hayden (Art); brother, Bill Durning; brother-in-law, Glenn Cota.

The family would like to express an extra special thank you to Dr. Harsh Mishra for his many years of compassionate care, and to all the V.O.N. workers who provided more than just their assigned responsibilities. Their excellent care and compassion shown to mom and dad over the last several years was second to none. We are forever grateful.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro, where Lucia’s family will receive friends from 4:30-7 p.m., Tuesday, December 6, 2022. Funeral service will be held 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, December 7, 2022, at Economy United Church, 3360 Highway 2, Economy, Reverend Natalie Buchanan-Rutherford officiating. Interment in Economy Cemetery. Reception will follow in Economy Recreation Centre.
