Dot and Hubert L. Fultz or “Cucklebur,” were married on Dec. 6, 1961, in Gainesville, Texas. The household was blessed with three children, Anita, Butch and Gwendolyn.

Dot grew up with her sisters and brothers, in Sulphur and Murray County area where she attended school and later worked as a cosmetologist, eventually owning her own beauty shop. In her spare time, she enjoyed growing flowers both indoor and outdoor. An annual highlight was going to the State Fair each year with her family.
Dot’s greatest joy and focus in life were her children and grandchildren. She was a dedicated and loving mother and grandmother. She loved taking her grandchildren on treasure hunts and garage sales looking for special items.
Dot persevered through various health and medical conditions in the last half of her life before laying down her burdens to be welcomed into heaven. In addition to her parents, Dot was preceded in death by one daughter, Anita Faith (Fultz) Donaho; son, Oscar “Butch” Fultz; and one brother, Jerry Tom Manous.
