JODY LEE FULTON (published on July 21, 2009)



JODY LEE FULTON At the Montreal General Hospital, July 16, 2009, after a long battle with cancer, beloved daughter of Captain J. D. (Doug) Fulton and Marion (Kerr) Fulton. Born at Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, August 5, 1956, she held our hand, sometimes following, sometimes leading as we pursued our dream. Growing up in communities throughout northern Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec, in 1973 she graduated from Lachine High School. In 1974 she graduated from the Institute Videmanette, Rougemont, Switzerland, with honours in French and German. Discovered at Expo 67 she made her TV debut as co-host with her brother Kerry for several weeks on Tween Set a popular CBC teen program. She was drawn to modeling but her real love was aviation. She joined Execaire reservations in 1977, then in 1983 her adverturesome spirit took her to Goroko, EHP, Papua New Guinea where she worked with Talair, a regional airline serving outposts throughout this fascinating country. After 13 execiting years she rejoined Execaire at Montreal from 1996 until her passing. Predeceased by her grandparents and an aunt Shirley (Fulton) Rutledge. Left to mourn are her parents Doug and Marion Fulton, Portage la Prairie; brother Kerry and his wife Roberta with children, James, Thomas and William, Calgary; aunt Marjorie Fulton, Ottawa; uncle and aunt Jack and Loretta (Kerr) Carmichael, Winnipeg; and her many cousins and friends. The family is grateful for the help and support Jody received from her many friends around the world during her six year fight, especially her friends and co-workers at Execaire. At Jody's request cremation has taken place. A celebration of her life was held at the il Centro Restaurant, Bord du Lac, Pte. Claire Sunday, July 19, with remembrance and interment in the family plot at Hillside Cemetery, Portage la Prairie at a later date. If friends so desire a donation in Jody's name to a charity of their choice or the Palliative Care Unit, Montreal General Hospital.
