December 18, 1946 ~ June 10, 2023 (age 76) 76 Years Old
Our beloved mother, wife, sister, and grand-mother, Rose Marie Johnson Fulton, age 76,
passed away on Saturday, June 10, 2023. She was preceded in death by her husband, Mike
Fulton; their son Donnie Fulton; her mother, Cora Mae Wilson Horton, and stepfather, Jesse T.
Horton, Sr.; a younger sister, Mary Kathryn Horton; and her aunt and uncle who helped raise
her, Dorothy and Frank Wilson. She is survived by her son, Ronnie Fulton, of Mobile; her
brothers Jesse T. (Diane) Horton, Jr., of Huntsville, Alabama, and the Rev. Alvin J. (Cheryl)
Horton of Richmond, Virginia; her grandson, Mason Fulton, of Mobile; and several nephews
and a niece, among others.
Rose was born on December 18, 1946, in Mobile, Alabama. When she was still an infant her
mother married a young GI named Jesse Horton. The family grew as her mother gave birth to
three more children, two sons and another daughter. On their return from her stepfather’s
military assignment in Germany in 1962 the family was involved in an automobile accident that
resulted in the death of her mother and younger sister. After a long recuperation in a
Pennsylvania hospital, she went to live with her mother’s brother and his wife, Frank and
Dorothy Wilson, in Mobile. They were active and longtime members of Central Presbyterian
Church in downtown Mobile.
As a young teenager, she was a gifted sketch artist, often drawing dresses and fashions to
adorn the women of her imagination. She was a devoted “daughter” to her “adopted parents,”
Dot and Frank, and met her late husband, Mike Fulton, through them when Mike’s mother
came to the Wilson home to sell eggs from the chickens the Fultons raised on their family farm.
Her remains will be interred with her husband at the Alabama State Veterans Memorial
Cemetery at Spanish Fort, Alabama. The service will be private.
