To contribute to the Barb Fuller Memorial Scholarship, employees can make a onetime payment, authorize a monthly payroll deduction or take a multiyear pledge. Others may contribute directly to the LCCC Foundation.

The scholarship came about through multiple requests from different members of the LCCC family who wanted to keep Fuller’s memory alive. Dorothy E. Moen, human resource specialist, said Fuller has been a valued employee, coworker and good friend.

Brenda Laird, LCCC Foundation development officer, said another employee has offered to purchase a brick in Fuller’s memory for the brick garden on campus situation between the Administration Building and the Center for Conferences and Institutes.

Fuller started as a student at LCCC, worked part time in the Foundation Office and at the Adult Career and Education System (ACES) Program since 1997. Former friends and co-workers described her as a ray of sunshine that will be missed on a daily basis.

She was survived by her a son, James Fuller, of Green River; a daughter, Mandy Fuller, of Cheyenne; mother, Helen Bumgarner, of Cheyenne; stepmother, Irene Kennedy, of Cheyenne; a brother, Douglas Kennedy, of Augusta, Ga.; two stepbrothers, Don Buchholtz, of Rawlins, and Duke Buchholtz, of Nederland, Colo.; two stepsisters, Patsy Taylor, of Rawlins, and Bonnie Nilsen, of Polouse, Wash.; and three grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her father, Darryl Kennedy; stepfather, Francis Bumgarner; infant brother, Ricky Kennedy; and a stepbrother, Alan Buchholtz.

Services were held at Wiederspahn-Radmomsky Chapel with Robert Ronish officiating. Internment was at Lakeview Cemetery.
