Vanessa Robin Fullard, 58, was born March 13, 1963 in Timmonsville, SC. She was the beloved daughter of Febray M. Fullard and the late Gary Gee. Vanessa departed this life on July 4, 2021 at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.
Vanessa and her family moved to Pennsylvania in 1966. They lived in Homewood and Wilkinsburg, then moved to Arlington Heights and she attended Arlington Elementary School. She attended South High School where she ran track and graduated in 1981. Vanessa was very family-oriented and she loved being a mother and grandmother. On holidays she never asked for gifts. The only thing she wanted was that her family come together and spend quality time with each other. Usually consisting of plenty of laughter as well as a lot of dancing and singing. She truly enjoyed being surrounded by her grandchildren who wouldn't leave her side.
She was extremely caring in her own ways. Often having an open door to the neighborhood where friends became family and her children's friends became her children as well. If you knew Vanessa, Robin, or Nessa you knew a firecracker, exploding with personality, energy, and laughter she was truly one of a kind. She will definitely be missed.
Vanessa is survived by her 5 children, Shate'a Fullard, Savahn"Vahn" Fullard Sr., Steven "Little" Polk, Siarra "Poohba" Polk, Malik Fullard; 6 grandchildren Jayonna, Nijaye"NiNi", Anthony Jr, Sky, Savahn Jr"Vahn", Noah; brother, Michael "Wally"Fullard ; nephew, Michael Davis, niece, Myah Fullard; also an aunt and uncle in South Carolina, many cousins in Pittsburgh, South Carolina, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, and California among other relatives and friends
