Thanks to Teresa Fuller Sparks For Submitting Photos and Information for this family. Teresa Fuller Sparks, the daughter of Gee and Nancy, writes lovingly about her family the following:
Dad (Ralph Gee Fuller) retired several years ago from the railroad. He worked the rails and could do anything; conductor, brakeman etc. He has played music since he was a teenager and still strums on his guitar at home. Mom (Nancy Darst Fuller) drove a school bus for years. She still writes the Condit News for our local Sunbury Paper, and volunteers to work at the voting polls and church functions at the Condit Presbyterian Church. Gramma Grace (Breeding) Boston passed away in Nov 2000. Her death has been hard on dad as well as the rest of us. Gramma's second husband James Boston (dads step dad, but the only grandpa us kids have known) lives in Marengo with dad’s sister Judy Boston Duncan and husband Keith. Dads brother Johnny Boston lives in Wisconsin with wife Rae Ann.
