Easton: Karen Dixon Fuller, age 76, passed away peacefully at her home overlooking Trippe Creek in Easton, Maryland on July 4, 2019 from an advanced stage of dementia. She was born to Ballard Fulton Dixon and Margaret Barghausen Dixon in Washington, D.C. She was married in 1985 to Craig Fuller having met when both worked at the White House. Karen loved people, making and keeping friends throughout her life. Her last vacation was a road trip to see her friend of over 70 years in Florida which she made with Craig at the start of this year. And prior to that she traveled to California’s wine country to celebrate the significant birthday of a close friend with his friends and family. Trained as a teacher, she taught briefly before turning to a life of public service from Capitol Hill to the White House, serving on President Reagan’s staff through all eight years of his presidency. Karen was active in the community having served as a board member in Washington, D.C. at the Museum of Women and the Arts; the Prevent Cancer Foundation and the Smithsonian Women’s Committee. Her husband, Craig, says that if there is one theme from the hundreds of messages that are flowing in, it’s an expression of appreciation for the friendship and the help Karen constantly provided to people throughout her life. Having resided in McLean, VA since 1989, Karen and Craig moved to Easton, Maryland in 2016 where they had just begun to enjoy their fourth summer on beautiful Trippe Creek with their beloved Weimaraner, Maggie. Karen is survived by her husband Craig Fuller, step sisters Kiki Wheelock and Lisa Ellington along with step-brothers: Scott Dixon, Duncan Dixon and Craig Dixon, all of whom reside in the San Antonio, Texas area. A memorial service will be scheduled later this month. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Talbot Hospice Foundation 586 Cynwood Drive, Easton, Maryland 21601, talbothospice.org.

  1. Our most sincere sympathies to Karen’s husband and family members. It’s been many years since Anacostia High School, but Karen is still remembered as one of the sweetest and kindest classmates anyone ever had. Her smile and kindness will surely live on.

  2. Karen’s mother, who was the chaperone for “The Debs” sorority during our time at Anacostia High School, and Karen, exemplified the phrase that David Brooks coined in the “Road to Character” to describe the importance of paying more attention to how one lives one’s life and is thought of in one’s Eulogy, rather than the Resume one creates. Karen did not neglect her Resume, and neither have other “Debs” like Dixie Absher Cook, who is also deceased too young. We had so much good fun in Debs and in going to Ocean City, Maryland, during the week after school was over! We learned how to have fun when we were adults and to use our intelligence, creativity, and influence to help other people along their path.

  3. I am blessed and a better person for having known and loved Karen, ever since becoming close friends at Anacostia High School; including, wonderful memories of the shared comradery of our “Debs” family. Karen’s loyalty as a sensitive, giving, trustworthy sister/friend has prevailed throughout our lives.

    For Craig and their families, I send words of love, warmth, empathy, support, smiles and sunshine, remembering the way Karen lived her life. I know she will be sorely missed by all.
