She was born August 19, 1926 at her parent’s home in West Windsor, the daughter of Oliver and Henrietta (Hanscom) Russell. She grew up with her siblings and parents on their farm in West Windsor. One of the farm hands referred to Edna as “Edna Tedna” and the nickname “Tedi” stuck.
When she was nine, the family moved to Windsor, where she received her schooling and graduated from Windsor High School in 1945.
She married Laurence W. Fullerton in Windsor on July 11, 1945. They lived in California while Mr. Fullerton was serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II. Following his honorable discharge they returned to Vermont and resided in Burlington while Larry studied at the University of Vermont. After his graduation they returned to Windsor.
In the early 1960’s, “Tedi” started Tedi Fullerton Realty in Windsor, which she owned and operated for many years. She was also a member of the National Association of Realtors.
She and her husband were avid golfers and spent many years traveling and playing at different courses throughout Vermont. Following their retirement they spent the winter months in Myrtle Beach, S.C. with many friends from the Windsor community. They also were fond of spending time at York Beach, Me.
“Tedi” was a longtime active member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Windsor.
Survivors include one son, Scott B. Fullerton and his wife, Margaret of Grand Isle, one granddaughter, Jessie Fullerton of Grand Isle, and several nieces and nephews.
