Anne Fulgoni

Oct. 29, 1946 — April 12, 2014

Anne Fulgoni died tragically on April 12, 2014.

She graduated with a master’s degree in psychology at Chico State College in 1973 and studied and worked at the University of California, Riverside, with a specialization in neurochemistry. She completed her administrative services credential at the University of San Francisco in 1985. She began working for the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District in 1984 and taught special education classes at Grange Middle School for 24 years. Mr. Hancock at Grange said, “The world has lost someone who made a significant difference to the students she taught, but heaven has gained a star.”

She was preceded in death by her father, Robert Fulgoni; mother, Hannah; stepfather, George Butters; and sisters, Helen Metcalf, Patricia Fulgoni and Lois Matthews.

She is survived by her beloved fiancée Dino Ghilarducci.

She is also survived by siblings, Fred (Sandra) Rabideau, Whilmina (John) Fucci, Diane Williamson, Sandra (Cal) Baptiste, Joyce Britton; nieces; nephews; cousins and friends. Loving mother of her cats, Micha, Dodger, Nutmeg, Cleo, Ploom and Sebrina; stepmother to Dina Neyman (Scott); dear Nonnie, of Alexander Neyman.

A member of Les Amis des Frères, an organization of former Christian Brothers and their families.

The viewing will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 24, 2014, at Bryan-Braker Funeral Home, 1850 W. Texas St, Fairfield, Calif., 707-425-4697.

A luncheon will follow the funeral services at the Hilton Garden Inn, 2200 Gateway Court, Fairfield, 426-6900.

    It doesn't say how she died. I subbed in Anne's classes many times in the mid-90's. She ran a tight ship. Sorry for her family's loss.

    Anne was a motivator and an inspiration to the students she taught and a profound illuminator of their successful educational paths. It was truly an honor to have had Anne as my mentor, leader and Department Chair at Grange Middle School. She “guided” our young and sometimes naive principals/administrators by using facts, principles, regulations and good old fashioned common sense. A few feared Anne’s tenacity but all respected her opinion, experience and knowledge. Anne made my early months and years much easier to negotiate and she left an indelible impression on me and the contemporary school staff during her tenure. Thank you Anne and may your family and friends find comfort in these words. With sadness and love. Dr. Willie Hancock
