Rochelle Louise Fulleton was born and raised in New London, Connecticut. She was the child of immigrants. She lived most of her life in Pueblo Colorado and Ventura County, California. She passed away suddenly on January 4, 2022 in Castle Rock, Colorado while visiting family.
Rochelle Fulleton was born on Mother’s Day to her parents Saul and Fannie Epstein. She worked 3 jobs to get through college. She married David Chepovsky in the late 1950’s who she helped put through medical school.
After proudly graduating from University of Connecticut, she worked as a home economics teacher in New York. She and her former husband David Chepovsky had 2 children, Richard Chepovsky and April Chepovskygold (Harvey) who were both born in New York. When she moved with her family to Phoenix, she volunteered numerous hours to help feed the hungry and clothe the poor.
She lived in Pueblo, Colorado for many years. During that time, she was a founder and president of the Pueblo Civic Ballet. After her divorce, as a single parent, Rochelle embraced the challenges and financial adversities of raising two children.
