Margie E. Fulcher passed away peacefully at home with her daughters by her side on May 11, 2019 after a brief illness. A true and beloved Cape Codder, Margie was born on January 9, 1951 at Cape Cod Hospital to Roscoe Nickerson and Elizabeth (Brown) Nickerson. She grew up on Rte. 6A in Orleans where the Christmas Tree Shop now stands. Margie was a devoted and loving mother, wife, sister, aunt and Nana who never missed a single game or school activity that her daughters Vicki and Tina were involved in. She was their Brownie leader and served on the Eldredge Park Playground and OES Playground fundraising committees to ensure the best for her daughters and all the children in the community. She was so proud of her daughters and her grandchildren, always encouraging them to be the best they could be. Margie was also a loyal friend, advocate and a true leader who persevered through every aspect of her life. She was both well-known and respected for speaking her mind, as well as for her fun-loving and mischievous ways. She will always be remembered for her wit, sarcasm and wonderful sense of humor. Margie had a work ethic like no other and was larger than life in so many ways. She was a member and Chairperson of the Orleans Board of Selectman from 2003-2012 as well as a member and Chairperson of the Nauset Regional School Committee from 1981-2003. In 2003 she was awarded the MASC Lifetime Achievement Award for her service to her community. In addition, she, along with her late husband Paul, were honored as Orleans Citizens of the Year in 2014. Margie truly loved the Town of Orleans, and selflessly devoted many years of public service to help her community thrive. Margie was pre-deceased by her loving, devoted husband and true soulmate of 41 years, Paul O. Fulcher; her parents Roscoe and Elizabeth Nickerson; brothers Jim, Robert and Richard; sisters Evelyn, June and Margie’s twin sister Elizabeth, and her great-niece Ashley Davenport.

So sorry to hear of Margie’s passing.
We grew up together and rode on the same school bus.
She always had a smile for everyone.
She will be missed.

So sorry to hear of Margie’s passing. She was such a strong woman and force of nature- always standing up and fighting for what she thought was right! She served unselfishly on the school committee with my mother for several years at a time that was so male dominated. What a legacy she has left for her daughters for sure. Rest In Peace, Margie, you are once again with the love of your life. ❤️

Margie is my Late Mum's Sister-in-Law. She was married to Paul's Brother, and my Late Step-father Hugh Fulcher. What a great time all had with such great people. I can still hear Margie laughing with the jibs and jabs, only those close-knit families have when there is so much ❤️! My Mum lost her husband Hugh way too soon... She was never the same, and she longed for her Love, just as Margie has been lost without Paul. I remember the Laughter at the table, when they were all together, probably after grilling, and playing a game of cribbage! There was just so much Laughter and Love, between first Margie, and Paul; But also the brothers, and the whole group. I couldn't help but love all of them and the love they shared. Through my Mum's New Family, I was Blessed to meet Margie and Paul's daughters Tina, and Vicki; who are literally chips off the old block! Anyone lucky enough to meet them will be in Fine company. It seems Margie ran a tight ship and produced a few True Cape Cod Treasures. They have made their parents proud and I know they will all continue. I love you Margie and family, may God be close to all of you at this time. 🙏🕊️💞

I've known Margie, and her late husband Paul, a good part of my adult live. Early on in life, as editor & publisher of The Cape Codder newspaper, then later as chairman of Nauset Regional School Committee, I knew them both, and dealt more directly with Margie, and loved her, as well as Paul. We were not always on same side, but Margie, who more than me had it right, was one of my closest friends. Margie, beyond others, taught me to seek the other side, to listen. I miss her. She had a tremendous impact on my life..,

I knew Margie and Paul most of my life. Dad worked with Paul often and I had the pleasure of babysitting Vicki and Tina.
Margie and I had some great talks after I lost my dad and she Paul.
She was a force of nature and an advocate for women's rights and for the town of Orleans.
Rest easy Margie, I am glad you and Paul are reunited. XXOO

I am very, very sorry to hear of Margie's death. We connected when she was a Selectman and I worked for Senator O'Leary, and we became friends. We shared a strong interest in having more women in government. We also were both very proud of our children and grandchildren! I truly hope that she is now reunited with her so-loved husband Paul.

Very sorry to hear of her passing. I’d known her in her professional capacity as a Selectman. She had a lot of vitality and was a dedicated public servant. She will be missed.

Margie was a force of nature, always willing to work for what she believed in. Her devotion to her family was boundless. She truly left the world a better place by her efforts in so many directions.

Margie has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. She drove me to skating competitions and came to watch my recitals. I babysat for Vicki and Tina while Margie and Paul were out enjoying an evening with their friends.
Margie was tireless in her work to help the school children and the town of Orleans. She laughed loudly and often! And she always gave you her honest opinion. Margie truly left this world a better place. May you rest in peace. Timmie has a loving home, until he joins you in heaven.
Uncle Paul can now hold you in his arms. Xxxxooooo
