Rosemary passed away February 10,2022 peacefully in the arms of her daughter, Sue, in her home in Godley. She was born May 22,1927 in Lapeer Michigan to Forrest and Emma Dell Watson. Rosemary married Laverne Francis Fuller on August 23,1947 in Flint, Michigan. In 1962 the family moved to Texas, where she loved and knew this was where she was to raise her family. They moved to Godley in 1964 and she was a long time member of the community and the Methodist Church. She loved bookkeeping and worked at the Quarter Horse Journal, Godley Feed Store, and tax collector for Godley ISD. She did books also for the church for many years. She was very active in her church, from Sunday School teacher, VBS teacher, United Methodist Women, Methodist Woman Quilters Group, Lord's Acre, Bible Studies, Business Meetings and Fellowships. She loved her church and her church family. She was her grandchildren and great grandchildren’s biggest fan, proud of them was an understatement. She was an avid horse racing fan and was very proud of her shared ownership of her race horse, Chasing Time. She was excited that he was rated a possible contender for the Kentucky Derby. She was a member of the Godley City Council until April 2021. Her faith and servant spirit was evident in all she did. Rosemary’s size could be misleading. She was bigger than life. Rosemary’s strong will and independent streak will be greatly missed. She was feisty, spunky, classy and loved by many. She was not only 1 in a million she was 1 in a billion.
Rosemary is survived by her children Sherry McManis and husband Mark of Cleburne, Steve Fuller of Kerrville, Sue and husband Jeffrey of Godley, Kelly and husband Craig of Pampa; grandchildren, Lindsay, Hadley, Payton, Jennifer, Jessica, Justin, Zack, Q.B., Callie Sue and Sadie;18 great-grandchildren and one on the way, niece Cindi Plummer and nephew Dave Black of Michigan and a host of other relatives and friends.
