Obituary of Doris "Jean" Fultz

Doris Jean Fultz age 87, affectionately known as Jean, passed away at her home near Council, Idaho June 9, 2022, due to dementia.  Born in Milton-Freewater, Oregon on September 8, 1934, she spent most of her young life near Payette and most of her adult life in Boise, King City, California and near Council. She is survived by her husband of almost 40 years Jim Fultz, sons Dan Barnett of Nampa, Dave Barnett of Council, Joe Adams of Council, and 8 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great-grandchildren, brother Jerry Coates of Weiser, sister Joyce Vasquez of Boise, sister Trisha Hansen of Carmel Valley, California and numerous nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death was baby daughter Lavonne Barnett and son Robert Barnett.

Instantly recognizable while always wearing her drover’s hat, she lived near Council, Idaho for 30 years. She had a stroke 20 years ago which cost her most of her eyesight, but her disability didn’t slow her down at all.  Jean was an award-winning outdoor photographer, avid horsewoman, golfer, champion water-skier, trap shooter, gold panner, rock collector, and hunted with her .270 in many states including Alaska.  Jean was especially proud of her Delaware’s of Idaho Indian heritage and being immortalized in the book LENAPE written by her cousin Charlotte Simmons.  She was also proud to be the first woman journeyman carpenter in the state of Idaho while being employed by ASC Construction. She was a great lover of animals especially her dog Diesel, but her greatest joys in life came from spending time with her family. She especially enjoyed the moment she met her favorite actor, Jack Elam and obtained his autograph.
