Luisa Ramona Fuller

Luisa Ramona Duarte Fuller, (Ramonita) aged 86, died on Tuesday, August 4, 2021 of natural causes in her home in Hot Springs Village, AR. A proud American, Ramo was born in Camaguey, Cuba on February 8, 1935 as one of eleven children of her beloved mother, Maria Luisa Monagas, and father, Ramon Duarte. She was the second youngest of 11 children and is survived by her sister, Mary Fuentes of Pasadena, TX aged 89.

Ramo left Cuba for the United States in 1962 during the Cuban revolution as a result of her strong political beliefs, via Venezuela to Miami and then to Boston to live with her sister’s family. Originally, Ramo worked in a factory in Boston, then began working as an administrative assistant for insurance companies; she continued with that for the rest of her professional career of thirty years.

Ramo moved to California with the Fuentes family, where she met Earl Fuller, USN Ret, who became her only husband in 1973. They had no children of their own, but she “inherited” his family who became devoted to her. Earl and Ramo moved to Arkansas after her retirement and built their home together in Hot Springs Village in 1992. Ramo remained in her home in the “village” maintaining her fierce independence until her passing.

Ramo’s patriotism was palpable, and as a veteran’s widow she attended VFW and American Legion activities for as long as she was able. An American flag, on a 30 foot pole, is erected in her front yard; her telephone message leaves no doubt that she was dedicated to this country and her veterans. Ramo always became emotional that she never saw her mother again after leaving Cuba but her faith assured her that she would be with her again, as she happily must be now.

Ramo loved her church and her priest, Father William Elser, and was a dedicated bowler every week for years on the church league. She bragged to us, loudly, when she bowled over 100. Her retirement “career” included decades of dog sitting. She did this in memory of her beloved dog, Tiger, who lived nearly 20 years with Ramo’s amazing care and love. Ramo was dedicated to her husband’s veteran brother, Hugh Fuller, and his family of Carrollton, MO where she will be interred next to her husband.

Ramo is survived by her children, Cindy Caputo, Marlese Christian and Don Fuller, 8 grandchildren, Gina Caputo, Maria Niebla, Louis Caputo, Chris Edwards, Jennifer Alvarez, Keri Christian, Tara Christian and Tina McQuillen, and 8 great-grandchildren, her nieces, Toni Fuentes, Lisa Boussatach, Rebecca Swiff and nephew, Gerry Fuentes and their families from all across the country.

Ramonita requested that donations be made to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church to support their charitable efforts, in lieu of flowers.
