Jacksonville - Wendy Louan Fulmer went home to join Jesus on Thursday, July 9, 2020, after battling a lung disease for over a year. Wendy will be laid to rest at the Monte Vista Cemetery in Alamogordo, New Mexico, on Friday, July 24, 2020, at 11 a.m. with Pastor Jack Moffatt officiating. Wendy was born in Columbia, South Carolina, on Feb. 26, 1955, and was the second of five children born to Charles and Jimmie Fulmer. The ever-adventurous Fulmer family moved to Alaska in the 1960s and rooted a legendary family history hallmarked by a cross-continent road trip in 1967. The family later settled in Alamogordo where Wendy would graduate from high school in 1973. She then joined the U.S. Army and received an Honorable Discharge after about two years of service. Wendy went on to a career as a civil servant for the military at Holloman Air Force Base, Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, and Fort Bliss, where she transcribed voice notes for military scientists and doctors. Trauma experienced during her time as an active duty military member ultimately led to her retirement in 1993. Her patriotism never faltered and Wendy proudly flew American flags any chance she had. Growing up during the Vietnam War, she was heartbroken for the families ripped apart by war and wore a memorial bracelet for more than 40 years. Even in death, Wendy will continue to wear the POW/MIA memorial bracelet of U.S. Air Force Maj. Robert Pasekoff, who went missing in action on March 13, 1966. Her children will continue to wait for his return home. Wendy was not defined by her military service or career, but by her role as a mother and cheerleader. She was a proud band parent, cheer parent, and athlete parent who was never afraid to shag little league baseballs. She developed genuine interests in football, hockey, baseball, and cycling to support siblings, children and grandchildren. Her crocheted afghans
and cross-stitch pieces still hang in homes across the country as a reminder of her extreme patience and the love she had for family. A 15-year survivor of breast cancer, Wendy wore the same pink bracelet through and afterchemotherapy and, in her final years, often donned anything pink to support other women facing the same challenges. She understood the uncertainty of medical tragedies and graciously left
her kidneys after death so other families could celebrate life. Absolved of sin through her relationship with Jesus Christ, Wendy is now free from the burdens of this life and joins Him to guide her children and grandchildren on their respective journeys.
Her spirit also holds a strong connection with Native American wisdom, culture and medicine; Wendy’s respect for the Earth and Her natural wonders will live on for generations. If Wendy has left any sort of legacy, it is one that can teach us how to remember and think of others. After reading this, call your parents, siblings, or friends you haven’t spoken to lately to just say hi. Send them a card or little gift in the mail, even if it isn’t any particular holiday. Whether or not you hear back, they will know you are thinking about them.
Wendy is preceded in death by her parents, Charles Luther Fulmer and Jimmie Dean Turner (Hiett); ex-husband, Craig Douglas Child; and by her brother, Dennis Allen Fulmer. She is survived by her children, Angela Louise Narvaez (Child), of California, Melissa Marie Moore (Child), of Montana, Michael Dean Smith, of Oklahoma; siblings Charles Micheal Fulmer, of South Carolina, Cheryl Lynn Joyce (Fulmer), of Alabama, Timothy Lyle Fulmer, of Texas; sister-in-law Elizabeth Jane Fulmer (Stewart), of Wisconsin; four aunts and uncles; five nieces and nephews; and eight grandchildren. In life, trauma from her military service drained Wendy of the strength to fight a system designed to protect the powerful. In death, however, Wendy’s memory can contribute lasting change for other women in the military so they may receive the respect they deserve.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Battered Women’s Justice Project and end military sexual assault.

Believe it or not, my favorite memories of growing up with you as my Mom were when I was a teenager. Those muggy evenings after supper when we spent hours throwing the baseball will forever be cherished.

Fly high, Mom! You have no reason to be scared of heights anymore!
