Lelia Fulcher was born in Scotland Neck, North Carolina October 10th 1919. She left home at 18 years of age and moved to Paterson where she lived until April 20, 2011. She married Henry Fulcher in May 1953. They had no biological children but they raised a trio of boys Michael and Bernard Taylor, Maurice and nephew Douglas Mitchell. She also left a host God children. To the rest of Paterson especially to the rest of people of 400 Broadway she was known as "Aunt Lelia" and or "Miss Lelia". She was a life long member of Second Baptist Church in Paterson, NJ. Her education was limited until she enrolled in nursing school, when she graduated and worked for 15 years at what was then Bergen Pines Hospital until she was hit by a car and became disavled and had to retire. Not letting disability keep her down she worked in some of the local Dry Cleaning establishments and was an excellent presser until she retired. Lelia was preceded in death by her husband Henry Fulcher, 5 brothers: Frederick, Cornelius, Jr., James, Franklin and Joseph Mitchell, 4 sisters: Sally Gatch, Roberta Walls, Julia Wilson, Annie Mitchell. She leaves to cherish her precious memories, 2 sisters: Minnie Mitchell of Paterson, NJ, and Linda Cotton of Alexandria, Va., a host of nieces, nephews and friends. She was a kind and generous person to all she knew. She will truly be missed by all. I would like to end by thanking everyone who visited and sat with her in her hours of need. There are too many names to mention but you all know who you are.
