Lee Ann Peterson Fuller was born on June 17, 1938 to Henry Keith Peterson and Berniece Charlesworth Peterson in Richfield, Utah. She was the oldest of five children. In 1953 she met the love of her life, Frank M. Fuller, and they secretly married in 1954, waiting three months to tell anyone! Together they raised four children and enjoyed each other’s company for over 68 years.

Besides her many duties as a mother, Le was an avid volunteer and loved serving on the many boards and committees she worked with such as the YWCA, PTA, Women’s Architectural League, Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, and the Friends of the Library.

Le loved people, and they loved her! It was not uncommon for her children's friends to be found at her house just hanging out with her, even when her own kids were not home! When out-of-town sorority sisters and other friends needed a place to stay, or to have a holiday meal, they were always welcome in the Fuller home.

Le’s many (many) hobbies and interests included a deep love for books and reading. She loved traveling, and hosting fancy tea parties for her grandchildren. Le always loved finding a good "deal" at yard sales and NPS, and had a flair for all things unusual, funky, eclectic and quirky. She spent many evenings "yelling at the Jazz" with Frank and discussing the finer points of the games with her children. Le was an excellent cook and was well-known for bringing the best dishes to potluck dinners (even though she usually had to "quickly finish it" in the kitchen before it could be served).

Le is survived by her daughter Wendy Davis, her son Darin (Lisa) Fuller, six grandchildren, six great grandchildren and her sister Sue Erickson.

Le is preceded in death by her husband Frank M. Fuller, her parents Keith and Berniece, her daughter Teresa Fuller Rigby, son Frank D. Fuller, and her brothers, H.R. Peterson, Donnie Peterson, and Steven Peterson.
