Helen Fuller

Helen Sharp Fuller, age 83, of Mansfield, Massachusetts, formerly of Foxboro, Massachusetts, passed away peacefully, in the presence of her loving family, Thursday, May 26, 2016, at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Massachusetts.

Born October 18, 1932, at Marlinton, she was a loving daughter of the late Henry and Gladys Graham Sharp.

Helen grew up as a Presbyterian in Marlinton. She was a 1950 graduate of Marlinton High School. She also attended West Virginia University and Potomac State College.

Prior to retirement, she had worked for 10 years as an Administrative Assistant for Factory Mutual in Norwood, Massachusetts. She had previously been employed for 20 years at Foxboro Co. in Foxboro, Massachusetts.

Helen made her home in Mansfield, Massachusetts, for the past 38 years. She had previously resided in Foxboro, Massachusetts, where she proudly raised her family as a single parent.

She was a firm believer in exercising and was a member of the Foxboro YMCA. She also enjoyed cross-country skiing, bicycling and traveling.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Harriet Sharp; and her longtime companion, Vincent Sisk.

She is survived by her devoted sons, Roger W. Fuller, and wife, Ingrid, of Northborough, Massachusetts, and Tommy E. Fuller, and wife, Freda, of Brockton, Massachusetts, and Marlinton. She was a cherished grandmother of Thomas Fuller, Erik Fuller and Hannah Fuller.

Helen’s son, Tommy, loved Marlinton as a young boy. He owns a cabin in Brownsburg, which he bought in 1987. He speaks highly of his family connection and his grandmother, Gladys Sharp, who gave him wonderful memories of Knapps Creek, behind her home on 10th Avenue. He spends Thanksgivings at his cabin in Marlinton, deer hunting, just like his grandfather, Harry Sharp.
