Olean Times Herald, Sat., Oct. 18, 1975, page 6.....WYCLIFFE COUPLE
LEAVE FOR MANILA;FORMER RESIDENTS.....Former Shinglehouse and
Ceres residents, no missionary linguists with Wycliffe Bible Translators have
left the area enroute to Manila, the Philippines, where they will be assigned
to one of the Wycliffe programs in progress throughout the Islands......Dr.
Earl E. Fuller and his wife, the former Eugenia Johnston of Shinglehouse,
had originally been scheduled to work with the program in South Vietnam
until the political and war situation there in late 1974 forced the evacuation of
Americans and relocation of the Wycliffe Bible translators to other Far
Eastern points......The Fullers were married on Aug. 17, 1974 in Waterville,
Vt. Before arriving in the Philippines, the couple plan to visit Jerusalem,
Israel and parts of Rhodesia......Mrs. Fuller, a daughter of the late Mr. and
Mrs. William Johnston, once residents of Shinglehouse, graduated from high
school in Allegany County, N.Y. and from the former Westbrook Commercial
Academy, Olean in 1947; after several years employment with an Olean law
firm, she entered Houghton College where she graduated with honors in June
1958 with a B.A. degree; in 1968, she received and M.A. degree from the
University of North Dakota. She also is a graduate of the Summer Institute of
Linguistics at Los Angeles, Calif. and the Wycliffe Bible Translators of Santa
Ana, Calif. From 1965-1973 she had been a missionary linquist with Wycliffe
Bible Translators in various places in South Vietnam......In late 1973 she
returned to the States to do graduate work on an honorarium at Syracuse
University and also, linguistic research with Dr. Frank Laubach Jr. at the
University. This summer, she and her husband completed a Spanish-English
primer for use in teaching children of N.Y.C. ghetto areas......Dr. Fuller
graduated from Shinglehouse High School; attended the University of
Pennsylvania; the State Teachers' College at Mansfield; and received the
B.A. and M.Ed. degrees from St. Bonaventure University, N.Y. in 1949. He
was awarded an honorary doctorate from the American Bible School in
recognition of a book he wrote as part of a Bible study program and for 37
years of teaching Sunday school......He completed 41 years of teaching in
New York State public schools, starting in Allentown, then Mt. Morris, and
the last 23 years in Portville Central School where he was a mathematics
teacher, guidance counselor, as well as track and cross-country
coach.....He helped to start a Sunday School at Bell Run in 1935 and
became a charter member of the Bell Run Union Church, Ceres. When his
first wife, Marguerite, died in 1966, Dr. Fuller made plans to serve in the
missionary field following his reirement in July 1970. That month he left to
begin four years of teaching mathematics at the Mavuradonha Christian High
School in the bush country of Rhodesia, Africa, with the Evangelical Alliance
Mission. In April 1974, he was forced to evacuate from that country due to
terrorists activities......His three daughters had earlier visited him in the bush
country; they are: Mrs. Allen (Marilyn) Kidd of Bell Run, Pa.; Mrs. Sal (Judy)
Caruso, Hyattsville, Md. and Mrs Robert (Helen) Cradduck, Laurel, Md. Prior
to his August 1974 marriage to Eugenia Johnston, Dr. Fuller took Wycliffe
training and jungle survival training in preparation for their then scheduled
assignment to South Vietnam, where Mrs. Fuller had worked for 10 years.
.....When in America, Mrs. Fuller has made her headquarters at the home of
her brother, Dr. Leon Johnston of Jeffersonville, Vt.
