Heaven’s newest angel arrived on August 19, 2021, when Dora Mae Fuller left to fill a position of the highest calling. While on earth, Dora Mae had many duties, including wife, mother, sister, coworker, dear friend to many, and grandmother.
Born Dora Mae Wyckoff in Nowata, Oklahoma, to William and Jewell (Collier) Wyckoff on December 26, 1951, Dora was the youngest of five. She attended Lenapah Public Schools, where she met her husband, Earl Fuller and were married on June 8th, 1973.
Dora Mae and Earl settled down in Lenapah, Oklahoma, before bringing 5 kids into the world and relocating to South Coffeyville, Oklahoma. She worked several jobs in her life, with her longest stint being with Funk Manufacturing, which later became John Deere, where she retired in February of 2020 with over 35 years of service. After retirement, she had more time for her most enjoyable pastime, her twelve grandkids, where she received her new name, Gaga. Dora Mae loved spoiling her kids and grandkids. She also loved watching sports, reading, keeping QVC in business, and visiting with friends and family.
Dora Mae was preceded in death by her mom and dad, William “Bill” and Jewell Wyckoff, her brother Sonny Wyckoff, her sisters Sharon Turney and Barbara McKellip, husband Earl Fuller, son Kristopher Lynn Fuller, and grandson Wyatt Cody Smith.
She is survived by her sister Joyce Cahill of Centennial, Colorado, son Shane (Julie) Fuller of Chanute, Dane (Lauren) Fuller of South Coffeyville, and daughters Chelsey (Brian) Knisely of Edna, and Dawn (Heath) Smith of Caney, and her grandkids, Danica and Brice Knisley of Coffeyville, Raquel and Rebel Smith of Caney, Kane, Jaxon, and Adalyn Fuller of South Coffeyville, and Layla, Fox, and Tre Fuller of Chanute.
Aside from her biological children, Dora Mae loved the friends of her children as well. She always made sure that everyone was fed, no matter how large the crowd, and never let anyone leave without a hug, or at least a smile.
Services for Dora Mae will be held on Saturday, September 4th at 1pm at Tyro Christian Church. A visitation will take place on Friday the 3rd, from 6-8 at Ford-Wulf-Bruns Chapel. Dora Mae will be laid to rest next to her husband at Mount Washington cemetery in Lenapah, Oklahoma. The service will be streamed live via the Ford-Wulf-Bruns Chapel Facebook.
