Daughter -Ella Fulmes.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Lori Fulmes, who touched the lives of everyone she met for the past 61 years, on March 6, 2020.
Lori was born on April 13, 1958 in Watrous, Saskatchewan, to her wonderful parents Pat and Henry Fulmes. She grew up with her older sister, Penny, and her younger brother, Greg, regularly heading to the Manitou bar or “crop checking” on the outskirts of town. She graduated from Winston High School in 1976, and pursued various jobs and classes in areas such as business, interior design, and cooking until she was able to begin the career where her heart truly belonged.
Lori spent the majority of her years – 34 to be exact – working at Canadian National Railways. She began her CN career on May 29, 1979, at the young age of 21, where she first started as an operator. On February 11, 1982, Lori started her role as a Rail Traffic Controller, which is where her soul truly shined. The majority of her years with the railroad were as an RTC, up until the day of her retirement on August 13, 2013. Lori paved the road – or rather, rail – for women in the railroad, and became the first female CN Chief in Canada. Not only did she love her job, but she absolutely adored the people she worked with. She was an incredibly well-respected woman, mentor, and friend to all at CN.
Lori’s heart became whole when she gave birth to her daughter, Ella Patricia Ahafia Fulmes, at 2:04 am on November 16, 1994 at the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. When Ella was only 10 months old, they packed up to St. Albert, Alberta due to a transfer to the CN office in Edmonton. This became home for them for over 17 years. They shared a love for the outdoors, gardening, visiting the farmers market in downtown St. Albert, doting on their loved ones, and spending their summers at Waskesiu Lake in Saskatchewan. They were so inseparable, that Ella refused to be without her momma on most occasions – which meant Lori was the parent volunteer for most school events, Brownie’s and Girl Guides trips, and anything in between. They truly did absolutely everything together. Ella was Lori’s entire world for the 25 years they were together on this Earth, and will be forever watching over her daughter until the day they are once again reunited.
Lori will be forever missed and survived by her daughter, Ella Fulmes (Travis); parents Pat and Henry Fulmes; brother Greg Fulmes (Nicole); sister Penny Edwards; nieces: Jacqui Easton (and daughter Aly-Cat), Megan Fulmes, and Carly Fulmes; grand-fur-children: Eko, Fleury, and Stevie; and many other close friends and relatives.
She was preceded in death by her best furry friend, Bree; as well as her best human friends for many years, Rob and Kirk Ferguson-Uhrich.
As Lori was a well-known lover of her numerous fur children, especially her dog Bree and grand fur-kids Eko and Fleury, donations are welcomed to be made to the Saskatoon SPCA.
