Margaret Mae Fulton, 84, of Plano, Texas passed away in Fort Worth on Friday, April 12, 2019 from complications of pulmonary fibrosis.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 56 years, Warren W “Bud” Fulton, Jr. in 2011, by her parents Ferman and Eula Mae Phillips, and her younger brother Jess Edgar Phillips.
Margaret is survived by her two sons Mark Fulton and his wife Christine McKenzie, and Phill Fulton and his wife Karen Fulton. She is also survived by four grandchildren Zachary, Elyse, Jack, and Cameron Fulton.
Margaret was born in McAlester, Oklahoma on August 14, 1934. Margaret and Bud moved frequently in the early years of their marriage, but settled in Richardson in 1970, and resided in Plano from 1979 to 2017. She lived the last year and a half of her life with Phill and Karen in Fort Worth.
Margaret was a devoted wife, mother, and teacher. She taught second grade for over 30 years, mostly in the Richardson Independent School District at Spring Creek elementary school. In retirement she and Bud traveled extensively with family and friends. A perfect day for Margaret included an early morning trip to the local nursery to load up her cart with flowers and return home to garden, but her greatest joys came amidst family gatherings. Her family and faith were her guiding principles.
