Sad News: Barbara Fuller

It is with a heavy heart that we are sorry to report the passing of one of the founding members of our group.  Barbara Fuller passed away this past Monday, January 5,2015. On the  "About PMlessonsLearned" page on our website, you will see her listed as one of our founding members.  You'll also see the many conference calls that she participated in (and the podcasts). We've listed several of them below.

Henry Will, founder of our group, has the following to say about Barbara, 
"Barbara was an inspiration to me in establishing the PMLL group. Not only did she support me, she also contributed wholeheartedly to the initial work to make the group become a reality. Barbara also gave her input to continually improve our group. I also volunteered with her in the local PMI New Jersey chapter. At one point, I suggested and initiated work for a Project Management Cruise for the New Jersey Chapter. The goal was for Project Managers to learn how to improve their professional work in a fun, relaxing, and social setting. Due to my other commitments, I wasn't able to do the work to make it happen. Barbara showed up to some initial meetings, took the lead, and made it happen. She was also a fellow Christian believer which brought us even closer. She will be sorely missed. I know she's in a better place due to her faith."

Several members have already expressed their sadness at the loss. We take this time to memorialize the vibrant life of Barbara Fuller.

Here is a list of some of the memorable contributions that Barbara made to this group:
