Rachel Marie Pullom
Rachel Marie “Tiny” Pullom, 72, of Fostoria, passed away Tuesday morning, June 27, 2017 at Blanchard Valley Hospital, in Findlay.
She was born June 14, 1945 in Blackfork, Ohio to Dottie Keels and Sherman Dudley. She married Donald Ray Pullom in Fostoria on November 28, 1964, and he precedes her in death.
Rachel was a member of the Union Baptist Church, Blackfork, Ohio and attended the Fostoria Church of God. She had worked for General Electric for 18 years, ExCello, Airfoil Textron, for four years, and then retired from Cooper Tire in 2007 after 15 years of service. Rachel was a breast cancer survivor of 16 years which made her love life even more. She enjoyed dancing and shopping, and loved her flower garden. She found the most joy, however, from talking to her grandchildren every night, doing word search puzzles and Facebook. Rachel was loved by all who knew her, and even some that didn’t. She was always full of life.
