Norma Dee Robertson Fulton
Norma Dee Robertson Fulton, 98, made her transition to Heaven on Sunday, November
21, 2021 at the home of her son in Lytton Springs after being surrounded by the love of
her family and caregivers.
Norma was born in Wheeler County, Texas on March 10,1923. She lived most of her life
in her beloved Dallas where she was active in her church and had many friends. In
2009 she relocated to Lockhart to be close to family.
Norma was preceded in death by her husband of almost 60 years, Ralph Fulton Sr., her
parents, her nine siblings and her son Gary John Fulton.
She is survived by her son Ralph Fulton Jr., her daughters in law Elizabeth Carol and
Suzanne Fulton, her grandchildren Jenny Rose Fulton and John David Maxwell Fulton
of Sebastopol,California and their mother, Mary Miller Fulton, grandchildren Jamilla
Stone, San Marcos, Roseanna Fulton, Portland, Oregon, Angela Fulton, Lockhart , and
Julian Fulton, (Audrey) Austin.
She is also survived by her great grandchildren Naia Fulton-Jones, Lockhart, Asa
Fulton, Portland, and Mila Fulton, Austin.
Norma was blessed to have loving caregivers who made her last years comfortable.
Margie Gonzales, the late Joy Siemering, Lupe Maciel, Ramona Estrada , and Paula
Ramirez were angels, especially Margie, who was her friend and caregiver for almost
nine years. Many fierce domino games were played.
Her beloved dogs Joy, Prissy and Prissy II were her loyal companions until their
Norma loved beauty and surrounded herself with it through her home decorations, her
always stylish clothes and jewelry, and her gorgeous flowers. She sewed for herself and
her grandchildren with professional skill. Norma learned to paint in oils and play piano in
her later years.
She loved fun and was competitive in her card playing and dominos. She was beating
us at dominos right up to the weeks before her death, all the while complaining that her
macular degeneration interfered with seeing. Every visit to her house would include lots
of games and her delicious scratch prepared meals, especially her salmon croquettes,
and numerous desserts.
Norma was adventurous and traveled to Hawaii, Europe, Canada (by train with her BFF
Ernestine Hamm), and Trinidad and Tobago. She was up for horseback riding, hiking to
waterfalls and snorkeling into her late seventies. She had boundless energy .Norma was a Christian whose great faith was a shining example to her family.
