Maggie Fulton’s Obituary
Margaret (Maggie) Fulton was born to John and Helga Hedlund (originally from Sweden) on January 27, 1935 in Los Angeles, California. She lived in the Los Angeles area for 44 years. She went to be with the Lord on December 7, 2020.
In 1948 she, along with her mother, father and brother, Arnold traveled across the ocean by ship to Sweden to visit and meet her family she had never known. It was the trip of a lifetime.
In 1967 she married the love of her life, Karl E. Fulton, originally from Nebraska.
She was employed in a wide range of positions. One of the most educational and rewarding was her employment with Hear Center in Pasadena, California. She worked with hearing impaired babies and children and observed the remarkable and exciting technological advances accomplished to help and enable children and adults to hear and talk. During that time, she was involved in an International Conference of Hearing with Speech specialists and experts from around the world. The Hilton Hotel in Pasadena hosted the event, and it was one of the highlights of her life.
In 1979 Karl and Maggie moved to Lakeport, California and started a different life as retirees.
In 1986 Karl preceded her in death and she returned to work. The Lake County Health Department was her final employer, where she worked for over eight years helping children with disabling illnesses and physical disabilities, coordinating with their parents, doctors, hospitals, nurses, and therapists. This position was the most gratifying and heartwarming and was the grand finale of her work life as she witnessed so many miraculous cures and results.
Maggie retired in 1996 from the County of Lake. Her time and ministry since then have been a concentration of presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ to searching and lost souls.
She enjoyed her church (Community Baptist Church in Nice) and their activities and attending Christian conferences. She could be a leader as well as a follower. She loved the Lord, her family, friends and deep relationships, her country, and her kitty, Heidi. She also enjoyed writing, music, art, reading, the ocean, and travelling.
Maggie is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Arnold and Janet Hedlund; her niece, Karla and her son, Steven; her nephew Keith and his wife, Jessica, and her children, Jeremy, and Ruby. Also surviving are a stepdaughter, Beverly Fulton, and two step-granddaughters, Manda, and Teri.
