Judith Ann Fuller, age 81, of Wilmington, NC passed away on Sunday, July 25, 2021, at her home.

She was born on November 19, 1939, in Hibbing, MN to the late Russell and Evelyn (Hewis) Martin.

Judy was a loving and giving mother to her children and those she considered children.  She was friend to many.

As a high school teacher, creative writer, and author, she enjoyed learning about other people’s lives and became passionate about interviewing Prairie women along the Oregon Trail. Judy loved to travel, enjoying a good book, and a strong cup of coffee. She will be greatly missed.
