  1. Dear Aunt Ronnie; I love you. I know that you are together again with your Mom and Dad, brother Franny and Billy (My Dad). Until we all meet again in Heaven. My memories of you will always live in my Head and my Heart. I will never ever forget you. Love Billy

  2. Dear Dan, Janet, and Family, From the bottom of my heart, I will always love your Mom. She was the coolest, funniest, hippest, most exceptional person I am so lucky to have been related to. Even though we were miles apart, the pain of losing her is unbearable. I will never forget her. My only consolation is knowing that my Dad has the Sister he loved more than life itself back with him again. I’m sure they’re torturing Grandmom as I write this. I love you Aunt Ron, always did, always will. You are forever in my heart. Love and Prayer’s, Janet

  3. Janet and Danny, my thoughts and prayers are with you. How I will always remember your mom, laughing, joking, being the life of the party. The past couple of years Aunt Ronnie traveled a pretty rough road and still managed to keep her witty ways. She had a way about her that made you laugh even when you didn’t want to. We all loved her and will miss her. But I’ll bet my dad was the first to meet her at the gate with open arms, so happy that they are together again. Your mom was one of a kind. I’m so greatful to have had her in my life.

  5. 1974: I first met Ronnie Fullerton through a mutual friend and her co-worker. She was working at the Plush Horse as a waitress and also as a single parent. We didn’t paticularly care for each other. 1978: We were both working at the restaurant “Ichabod Crane” in Torrance, CA as food servers. We still only tolerated one another. 1980: By 1980, because of her wit, her humor, her outlook on life, we had become friends, and decided to take a leap together: “Clean Sweep”, a high end house & office cleaning service. At first, it was extremely hard work, especially with Ronnie still keeping her waitress job. With her sense of street smarts, and my sense of the business end, we took off, working our butts off. By now, Ronnie’s children were grown and away, and she was driving a Porsche, wearing high heels & leather skirts… she was really MS VAVOOOOOM!!! And even then, she said the Rosary every day of her life. For more than 3 decades, she has been my confidant, my partner in crimes (just kidding), and my best female friend. She will always be in my heart as she is in yours, and we all have grown to love what she has been to all of us. She may be gone, but she’ll never be forgotten !! Her Confidant, Marc Woodward

  6. So sorry to hear about Ronnie. Although I haven’t seen her for quite some time, I could never forget her. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family and friends. I know how much she will be missed.

  7. Dear Peggy & Susie and Ronnies Family Our hearts go out to you with the passing of you life long friend and mother. We hope your fond memories will help keep Ronnie near to you for the years to come. We will never forget Ronnies humor and the good times we had on the East and West coast. Regards, Niecy & Michael

  8. Janet and Danny, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t join you for the celebration of Ronnnie’s life but I will be thinking of her. She always made me laugh and she’ll be missed. Linda Egan Flynn

  9. Hey mama, We love you so MUCH!! We are evertyhing you were. We crossed so many bridges together and always came out on the other side. I am so happy you are breathing and running in heaven with your family that loved you and wanted you with them for a long time. We Will Miss You, and Mama, THANKYOU!

Thank you for giving me the greatest treasure…your beloved Danny, and I thank Danny for his beloved Momma.May God keep you by his side, and may you be always by ours. Love You Dearly Precious Lady. Veronica

  11. Hi Wom, Danny & Family, Jamie & Julie, I feel so blessed that Ms.Ronnie was and always will be a part of my life.She always had a little wisdom to share with anyone that crossed her path.We are bonded by shared experiences. Bless your Souls Much Love Wom

  12. I received the unexpected news of Ronnie’s passing the day she left us, and I have had a chance to think many thoughts and recall many fine memories since. My heart felt feelings go out to Danny and Janet; I pray you both are doing well under the circumstances. Your mother was one of a kind and certainly one of my favorite people I have known on this planet. She was always there for me and my family in the most difficult of times. One memory I will always hold, when I was just a boy. She told me that santa’s elves where everywhere and that’s why I better be good. I asked “everywhere?”, and she replied “yes like up in the trees,” as she gestured to the trees in the back yard on Ave C. I try to use the same story with my kids, albeit with less success. With her passing I like to think she is like the elves she mentioned, everywhere and all around us. God bless you Ronnie, I’ll miss you dearly.

  13. Last year during Christmas time, I went to work with my mom on Saturdays. One of these Saturdays, I answered a phone call for my mom- it was a caller named Gwen. As I gave the phone to my mother, she said, “Oh, that’s Ronnie- that’s her code name.” This is what I think of when I remember Ronnie- a truly funny lady. She had the best sense of humor and was always incredibly caring and warm. She has always felt like family to me and I will miss her greatly. My prayers and thoughts go out to Danny and Janet, and to all of those who considered her part of their family too. Carey Dever

  14. My grandma always used to tell me, “Doin’ it wrong takes twice as long.” Well she surely did it right. She was a true original, like no one I’ve ever met or will meet. She was the funniest, most quick-minded person and I’ll love her forever. I could sit here and write for days about the great memories I have of her, about all the insightful words she always shared with me, about all the times she made me laugh. I know we all wish she was here to tell us one more joke. I know she’s makin’ God laugh as we speak…she could, you know. See you again one day, Gra-maw. Love, Gurtie

  15. My dearest Momma,You were my world, You were my life, living without you will be the Hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. You gave janet and I the world, and it is so Beautiful! Thank You My Wonderful Mother. You are the Greatest, and will always be the Greatest, I Love You So Much and Will Miss you More Than Anything. You gave me everything and I will continue to make you proud. I Love You Momma! (Your Sonny)

  18. To the only woman I looked forward to hearing call me, “you old bat” I will always remember your smiling eyes, contagious laughter, and all the fun times we had throughout the years. You will always be in my heart. Love, Lorilei

  19. Miss Veronica, I am going to miss how you made me laugh everytime I was around you. My fondest memories are the hours we spent watching ‘Dance Party USA’ when you lived with my parents and me. I feel so lucky to have had you in my life. I will miss you. Love ya! Miss Kristen

  20. Ronnie – you were the funniest woman I have ever known. You never knew what you were going to say about anyone, at anytime. No one was safe but that was you – bright blue eyes, great smile, devoted mom and friend. We will all miss you, your comments, your cats and your coffee. Love from the east coast – Julie

  21. Danny and Janet, Even though we didn’t see each other much over the years, I will miss your Mother. She was one of a kind. I’m sure she’s happy in Heaven now cracking up my Dad like she alway’s did. Love, Franny

  22. Dear Danny and Janet, I am so sorry that your Mom had to leave so soon. She was just too tired. We had nice conversations on the phone, so we weren’t really that far apart as long as we could talk to each other. She never let any of us know just how sick she really was. I miss her already. Love and prayer’s, Aunt Margie

  23. My thoughts and Prayers are with the family. I only briefly met Janet at the hospital, but it was clear how much Ronnie was loved. May your memories bring you comfort at this very difficult time. God Bless
