Donna Jean Crandall Fullmer passed away peacefully at her home, comforted by the presence of family, on March 13, 2017.Donna was born in Provo, UT on May 2, 1935 to Frank Leroy Crandall and Naomi Henrichsen Crandall. She graduated from Springville High School and later attended Brigham Young University.
On September 6, 1955, she married Clark Elmer Fullmer in the Salt Lake Temple. Donna encouraged Clark to continue his education to receive his DDS degree from Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, OH. They spent some time together in the Public Health Service before making a home and beginning a dental practice in Las Vegas, NV, living there for several years. They then moved home to Springville where they raised their six children. Eventually she supported Clark when he decided to further his education to receive a specialized degree in orthodontics at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, CA in 1980.
Donna had a bigger than life personality from the time she was a little girl. She paid attention to detail in every aspect of her life and remembered every detail of everyone she ever met—showing genuine interest in their lives and interests. She was a generous gift-giver and a doting grandmother. She enjoyed traveling with Clark—planning trips was a favorite past time. She loved time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her favorite places to be were the family cabin at Fish Lake as well as her home in Pacific Grove, CA where she could walk on the beach.
Donna was preceded in death by her eternal companion Clark Elmer Fullmer and by her parents.
