Nancy B. Fuller

Mrs. Nancy B. Fuller, born June 1, 1820; died March 29, 1896; aged 75 years, nine months and twenty seven days.
Sister Fuller was a native of South Carolina; married H.B. Fuller November 28, 1840; joined the Baptist church when she was 34 years old and lived a consistent member until death.  She moved with her husband to Arkansas in 1858 and her husband died in 1862. For thirty-four years she lived a widow and had the training of her eight children, one son and seven daughters.
Her suffering was immense for almost five months, but she bore it with a Job-like patience. She was willing and submissive to the death messenger and asked her children to meet her in the promised land. Her example was worthy of imitation.
