Cathy Fuller

Cathy Ann Fuller, 67, passed away peacefully after a battle with cancer, on August 6, 2016 at her home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Her family was at her side.

She was born April 26, 1949 in Margaretville, a daughter of the late Jim and Eva Fuller.

She was raised in Fleischmanns and graduated high school in 1967. She then attended St. Margaret’s Home for Children becoming a Child Care Technician followed by schooling and work at the Albany Medical Center giving her a Practical Nursing license. Over the next four years she worked as an LPN at the Albany Medical Center, Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Albany and St. Margaret’s Home for Children.

Cathy then moved to California to work as a nurse in the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. After nine years in sunny California, she moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. There she worked at the Myrtle Beach Manor becoming the manager of the Alzheimer’s Unit and was involved with the memory walk for several years. She also worked in the Grand Strand Pediatrics office and then for Procase Management (PMC) working with patients exposed to uranium. Cathy was a dedicated nurse and cared so much for so many of her patients and families. She could make anyone laugh with her dry sense of humor.

She is survived by her sister, Merry Lou Wickham (James), of Oneonta; her brother Melvin Fuller, (Deirdre), of Central Bridge and several loving cousins, nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Monday, August 15, 2016 in the chapel of McMillan-Small Funeral Home with Chaplain Nathan Falco officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Alzheimer’s Memory Walk, 2090 Executive Hall Rd. Suite 130, Charleston, SC 29407 and please mention Cathy’s name and the Myrtle Beach Memory Walk.

The family would like to express a heartfelt thanks to the staff of Caris Hospice for the excellent care of Cathy and support of our family. Also, thank you to her faithful friends that visited often to boost her spirits.
