Obituary of Prudence A Fuller

The Fourth of Seven children from the union of Edna Ruth Richardson-Day
and Hartley Ashton Day, Sr. and she was affectionally known as “Poonie.”
Born and raised in Buffalo N.Y., Prudence made her appearance on October
28, 1949. She attended schools 32, 16 and Lafayette High School. As an
adult she attended Empire State College, Niagara Frontier Center where
studied Community and Human Services. Years later she was Certified as a
Master Trainer in Chronic Disease Self-Management; a Health and Wellness
Consultant; and completed a Secretarial Science course as well.
Her loving friendly nature with people caused her to always be loved by
family, friends and associates. You’d always see her being supportive to
others and helpful in any manner that she could, even if she didn’t know you
very well. She loved to sing and dance and was always the life of the party.
In her early adult life Prudence relocated to Detroit, MI. and soon afterwards
began a family where she gave birth to Ronarldo (1975), and Virgil (1978).
Returning back to Buffalo she later gave birth to Rachel (1984) and Vanessa
(1985), and in (1998) Emmanuel became the youngest son.
Early on, Prudence worked in the banking system, and subsequently with
Bell Telephone in Buffalo, NY. As an Account Manager, and Project
Coordinator for Senior Services at GROUP Ministries, Inc. established by
Second Chance Ministries Church, under the leadership of Reverend Arthur
Boyd, for over 25 years. Prudence became an active member of the church
and soon became admired and well respected for her work in the areas of
ministry. The primary focus of the organization was on health and wellness,
substance abuse and HIV related programming, domestic violence,
preventive healthcare, and problem resolution for seniors and youth. This
was done in conjunction with other family support and faith-based agencies
and environments within the community. Prudence Fuller was the Program
Coordinator for the Buffalo chapter of “The Healing Zone” which began as a
three-year pilot project funded by the U.S. Administration on Aging, through
the National Caucus and Center on Black Aged.
Prudence continued to pursue her interest in helping others and became a Health
and Wellness Consultant, at the House of Healing, for SUNY Empire State
College, with a focus on holistic living and care. Most recently Prudence
worked as a Patient Health Navigator for GBUAHN in Community Health Care
for Buffalo, NY.
