Lore was born August 24, 1929, in Bavaria, Germany.
Lore grew up in Germany during a very tumultuous time. She lost 2 brothers and many, many friends in WW2.

After meeting Leo Fulbright, a U.S. soldier, they enjoyed a long married life of 69 years. Although Lore missed Germany, she became a proud U.S. Citizen in 1958. Lore enjoyed knitting, crocheting and quilting. She was raised Catholic and later changed to the Baptist faith. She was very dedicated to her family and was always there when needed. She will be greatly missed by family and friends.
She is survived by her husband, Leo W. Fulbright, Highland, IL; sons, Leo L. Fulbright, Columbia, IL, David L. (Kim) Fulbright, Edwardsville, IL; grandchildren, Benjamin G. (Angela) Fulbright, Erica H. Fulbright.
