Ramona Chancey (Youngworth) Fulcher
We lost another steel magnolia last Friday when Ramona Chancey (Youngworth) Fulcher passed away, surrounded by her family, after a valiant battle with pulmonary hypertension and breast cancer. Ramona’s humor, love of life, love of others and belief in God sustained her and gave her the strength and stamina to astound her doctors by living well beyond their expectations.
Ramona is survived by her two daughters, Cathi Wentworth and Chrissi Cox, and their families; her husband, Mike Fulcher; and seven step-children: Michelle Ball, Tysijuania Little, Veronica Youngworth Hemphill, John Youngworth, Jim Youngworth, Susan Youngworth and Jennifer Youngworth Schatzl and their families. In addition, many others, including cousins and nieces/nephews, as well as, some amazing friends, will miss her dearly. Ramona was proceeded by her late husband, Jack Youngworth; her brother, Lamar Chancey; and her parents, Virgil and Dot Chancey.
Ramona is known for her giving heart, her appreciation of art and beauty, her story-telling and laughter, her musical talent and her desire to make sure everyone felt loved and appreciated. We can only hope she felt from us all the love and appreciation she shared. She was a light in this world, one that will never burn out as it will continue to shine through us all.
A Memorial Service for Ramona Chancey (Youngworth) Fulcher is planned for Friday, March 9, 2018 at Noon at Christ Chapel, 13909 Smoketown Road, Woodbridge VA, 22192, (703)670-8481. Her ashes will be placed in Arlington National Cemetery at a later date, in a private ceremony. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Ramona’s memory, to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association via the Association’s website: phassociation.org.
