Tommie Edna Fulcher, born Jan. 10, 1919, was a resident of Roswell for more than 64 years. She moved to Texas in 2006 to be near her daughter.
Tommie went to her eternal home in Heaven on Sept. 29, 2010. She was one of nine children of Elbert and Molissia Keesee of Wellington, Texas. One sibling, Bertie Keesee Small, of Hanford, Calif., survives. Preceding Tommie in death were her husband, Curtis; her son, Roy; and her grandson, Brent Taylor.
Surviving are her daughter, Curtistine Taylor, and husband, Richard; her granddaughter, Karen Taylor Smith; and great-grandchildren JaNae, Denver and Conner Smith, all of San Antonio, Texas. Tommie was an energetic person with a strong work ethic. As Southeastern New Mexico area manager for Stanley Home Products for more than 25 years, her area was often recognized as the top producing area in the country. She also owned a popular beauty salon in Roswell for several years.
Tommie and Curtis were active members of the North Hill, and later, the West Alameda Church of Christ in Roswell. They are fondly remembered for their outreach to newcomers and their encouragement and assistance to anyone with special needs. A memorial service will be held at West Alameda Church of Christ at 11 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 9, 2010, with the Rev. Odell Farr officiating. Burial will follow in South Park Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations are encouraged to New Mexico Christian Childrenâ€™s Home, 1356 NM HWY 236, Portales, NM, 88130.
