Obituary of Arlyn Bea Fuller

Arlyn Bea Fuller, lovingly known as Irish, of Greeley, Colorado was born to Charles

Carleton Foley and Nellie (Gibson) Foley on September 27, 1927, in LaPorte,

Indiana. The family moved to Central City, Nebraska, where she was raised.

She was the eldest of two sisters and two brothers, Ann Johnston, and Lola Baird

both of Lakewood, and Roy and Gary Foley who both preceded her in death. She

was also preceded in death by half-brothers Carl and John Foley and half-sister

Lois Tucker.

She attended Hastings College, studying music and English, and Regis College

where she studied literature.

On April 26, 1948, she married Frank Robert Blush. From this union were born

three children: Frank Karl Blush, who preceded her in death; Tony, a stillborn

daughter, and James Robert Blush of Eaton Colorado.

Irish began working for Sundstrand, a company which manufactured aerospace

and industrial parts in 1958. She supported her two sons during this time on that

secretary's salary.

On February 4, 1972, she married Richard Fuller. They enjoyed traveling the

world together and only missed the continent of Antarctica. They also supported

son Jim during his collegiate gymnastic career by traveling the country to

wherever he was competing.

One of the highlights of Irish's life was becoming the secretary for the Chief of

Police for Thornton PD in Colorado. This led to many friendships with the officers

in the department. After retiring on September 14, 1989, she volunteered for the

hospitals of St. Anthony's North in Westminster and Northern Colorado Medical

Center in Greeley, Colorado.

The pride and joy of Irish's life was her family. She is survived by son, Jim (Ann) of

Eaton, Colorado; their children Robert C. Blush (Lori) of Worthington, lowa, and

daughter Jamie M. Lombardelli (Daniel) of Windsor, Colorado. She is also

survived by granddaughters Lisa Reeves (Shawn) of Richmond Hill, Georgia, and

Amy Blush, of Yankton, South Dakota. Surviving great-grandchildren are Tyler

Blush (Jenna), Ashley Rigg, Tanner Rigs, Austin Lombardelli, Addison Blush, Brianna Blush, and great-great-grandson Jaxson Daniel Blush who was born on

August 6, 2022. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

She passed into Heaven peacefully on Friday morning, August 5, 2022, at Greeley

Village, Greeley, Colorado.

Services for Irish's celebration of Life will be at Adamson's Life Celebration Home,

2000 47th Ave., Greeley, Colorado on Saturday, August 20, 2022, at 3 PM. A

reception will follow immediately after. Interment will be at Ft. Logan National

Cemetery at a later date.
