1958 – 2020
On Thursday, Oct. 15, 2020, Shawn Margaret Fullerton of Lundbreck suddenly passed away at the age of 62.
Shawn was born on Dec. 21, 1958, to Perry and Ruth Williams. She spent her first years in Texas alongside her siblings, Dave, April and Randy, before moving to Bragg Creek, Alta.
Shawn met the love of her life, Charlie Fullerton, as teenagers. Even though they didn’t start dating until their 20s, once they did it led to a wedding on Aug. 9, 1986, in Calgary.
Charlie and Shawn ranched in Bragg Creek and started to raise three kids, Kate, Rees and West, before moving the ranch to the Porcupine Hills in southern Alberta in 2004.
Shawn’s time was often split being a great ranch wife helping Charlie on daily ranch duties or cooking the most amazing meals and supporting her three kids in all their endeavours — whether that was cheering the boys on in a hockey arena, or a rodeo arena for her daughter, or leading the Timber Trails 4-H Beef Club for numerous years.
She will be incredibly missed by anyone who had the privilege to know her.
Shawn is survived by her loving husband, Charlie Fullerton, of 34 years; her three kids, Kate Fullerton of Blackfalds, Alta., Rees Fullerton of Lethbridge, West Fullerton and significant other Candace Cornish of Pincher Creek; her father, Perry Williams of Calgary; her brothers, Dave (Jean) Williams of Oklahoma City, Okla., Randy Williams of Denver, Colo.; her sister, April Williams and significant other Will Carter of Dallas, Texas; as well as numerous nephews and nieces.
Shawn was predeceased by her mother, Ruth Williams.
