Bowie

 

On Monday, June 5, 2023, Maude Irene Jennings-Fulton was called to eternal rest peacefully at her home in Bowie, Maryland after a brief illness.  Maude was born September 15, 1927, in Mitchellville, Maryland.  She was born to the late Cora (Watson) Watkins and Harry Brooke Watkins.  Maude was the eldest of four children, two sisters the late Blanche Henry, Susie Claibourn, and one brother the late Orville Watkins.  She has one son Lionel Watkins (Maretha) and one daughter Lolita Anderson. She has four grandchildren Cassandra Watkins, Chris Watkins, Erin Wheeler (Daniel), and Keith Watkins (Amanda). Maude has eight great-grandchildren, Antwan Holbert (Regina), Ashton Tomblin, MacKenzie, Maddison, and Kassidy Wheeler, Jason and Kole Hagey, Harlie Wills, and Logan Watkins.  One great-great granddaughter Aria Holbert.  She was married to the late Marvin Kelly Fulton. 

Maude was educated in the Baltimore and Prince George’s County School Systems.  In high school, her specialty was economics and sewing. Maude was a master seamstress who created a variety of clothing and home décor for friends and family.  She was a culinary expert whose potato salad, coleslaw, and fried chicken were loved by all.  Maude went to work at Fort Meade Military installation where she practiced her art of cooking in the food service department after leaving school.  Maude worked for the Prince George’s County School System as a bus driver for 24 years. 

In 1976, Maude joined the Improved Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the World.  She was active in the American Beauty Temple #476, as the Financial Secretary and Flower of Purity Council and served as Daughter Ruler. She also served as Past Grand Daughter Ruler Council of Grand Temple, Past State President Club, Past Grand Daughter Ruler Social Session, and Tri-State Athletic Department.

Maude was a devout Catholic and member of Holy Family Catholic Church since childhood and later, became a member of Saint Edward the Confessor Roman Catholic Church. 

Maude was a straight shooter and rarely held her tongue.  However, she was always one of the kindest, loving, compassionate, and giving person you could meet.  She was especially loved by her caregivers’ Granddaughter Cassandra Watkins, Daughter Lolita Anderson, and Nieces Carolyn Stewart and Anita Henry.  Maude is survived by a host of Nieces, Nephews, Elk Daughters and Brothers, and a host of Family and Friends.

Maude was one of a kind and will be truly missed.
