Elizabeth C. “Liz” (Allen) Fuller, beloved wife of the late Ret. Capt. David W. Fuller passed away at the Mass General Hospital, Boston on Monday, March 25th, 2019 after a most courageous daily battle with Lymphoma, over the last several years. Liz was sixty- six years of age.

Born in Arlington, she was one of   three  children born to the late Lester C. and Antoinette (Pecora) Allen. Raised in Woburn she was a graduate of Woburn High School along with the Class of 1970.

Just following high school Liz began her career as a Bank Teller at the Woburn National Bank. Liz’s pleasant smile and friendly demeanor lent itself to her “window” being constant and busy! Her tenure at the Woburn National Bank went from 1968-2000. Liz then at the Woburn Municipal Credit Union 2000-2011. Again, Liz loved what she was doing, and it showed each and every day.

Together she and Dave were devoted to raising their daughter Jennifer. Together they had enjoyed wonderful trips, to many different islands and states and had the pleasure of going to both Hampton Beach every summer, and also to Falmouth. At both Falmouth and Hampton, it was gathering place for all family and friends , cook outs, games, swimming and many long comforting walks on the shores of the Atlantic.

Liz was a very active person who absolutely loved to shop! With her daughter and mother they would venture off on shopping sprees at a mere suggestion! Saturday, Sundays, or just any day, was always a great day to shop!

Every Thursday evening was “night out with the girls!,” with whom she has shared decades with a wonderful group of high school and work friends.   They all truly enjoyed each others company and developed trusting and lasting friendships .

Over the last eight years she has enjoyed the loving companionship of her dear friend Dave Collier. Together they had shared many wonderful times and travels together , while also enjoying their families and all of the different familial activities that have taken place over the years.

Sadly, the last several years were difficult for Liz, but she never lost hope. Every day right up to the end, Liz gave a hundred and ten percent, accepting each and every day, as difficult as it was, with a greater hope for tomorrow.

Liz was sadly predeceased by her dear husband of thirty seven years David, along with her parents Lester C. and Antoinette.

Liz is lovingly survived by her daughter Jennifer DeGrandis and her husband Michael of Stoughton. Longtime loving companion, David Collier of Tewksbury.  Loving sister of Victor Allen and his wife Rita of Woburn and John Allen of NH.  Adoring “Nana” of Brian, Michaela, Sophia, Olivia, Jackson and Liam. Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend a Funeral Service in the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn on Thursday, March 28th at 11:00 a.m. Calling Hours will be held from 9:00 to 10:45 prior to the Service.
