June Drinnen Fulford (Cissy), age 64, went home to be with her Heavenly Father on October 21, 2021. The battle is now over, and the victory has been won! “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7. She was born in Blount County at Blount Memorial Hospital on March 27, 1957. Cissy graduated from Everett High School in 1975 and received a Associate Degree in accounting at Hiawassee College in 1977. She had several jobs, but the lion share of her career was at the City of Knoxville Police Department as a Sr. Administrative Assistant. Cissy was a faithful member of Broadway Baptist Church. God had given her a heart and a deep love for children; she devoted many years of service as a teacher in the BBC’s Pre-School Department. She loved her church and her church family, and they loved her in return. She is preceded in death by her parents, Charles, and Marie Drinnen. She is survived by her husband of 40 years, Maurice Victor (Vic) Fulford, son, Cody Ryan Fulford, Brothers, Bobby Dale Drinnen and Billy Wayne Drinnen, Niece, Rachel Drinnen, Grand Nephew and Niece, Elias Creed Drinnen and Adeline Rose Drinnen, Sister-in-law and Brother-in-law, Samantha (Sam) and Joseph Parrilli.
