Carol J. Fuller (Mitchell), 73, of Lutz, Florida, died peacefully on January 18, 2023.
She was the youngest daughter of the late Loretta Mitchell (Hughes) and the late Jack
Mitchell. Beloved wife of John Fuller of Lutz, FL, Devoted mother of Kristy Peterson
(Fuller) of Longmont, Colorado and John Fuller of Wyoming, Michigan, and
grandmother to Cadence Peterson. Sister of Nancy Mitchell Germain of Wayland, MA,
Jane Mitchell Alamo of Poughkeepsie, NY, Mary Mitchell DeLuca of Endwell, NY and
Jacqueline Mitchell Atkinson of Temple, GA.
Carol was born and raised in Binghamton, NY, graduating from Binghamton Central
High School. She received her RN degree from Duchess Community College and her
BSW from the University of South Florida. She worked as a registered nurse for over 30
years; retiring from Kindred Hospital.
Carol enjoyed running, participating in many 5K races and in one Disney Marathon. She
also loved all her cats. Carol was devoted to her kids and ensured John and Kristy had
the best childhood a mother could give. When John and Kristy were younger Carol
loved watching them participate in sports, took photos for the local newspaper, went to
Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, and when her granddaughter was younger she
traveled as far as Alaska and Hawaii to be with her.
Anyone lucky enough to have had Carol in their lives – as a wife, mother, grandmother,
aunt, sister, or friend – will mourn her loss. But they can take comfort in knowing she
loves them, and is watching over them, from above.
