Muriel Allerton, 93, one of Fulton’s most popular and respected citizens, died July 25 following an extended illness. She was a community icon, one of its most active and enthusiastic residents.
In 2010, she was welcomed to Albany by then Senator Darrel Aubertine and honored as a New York State Senate Woman of Distinction for years of exemplary service to her community. Sen. Aubertine said, “Muriel came to Central New York close to 50 years ago and over that time has certainly made her presence known. She truly is a woman of distinction and a pioneer in this community as the first woman mayor of Fulton. She is the type of person who makes friends for life shopping at the corner store and can convey a wealth of experience in the advice she gives.”
