“There were times I thought my brain would explode,” said Sharri Fuller, reflecting on 40 years of business as owner of the Toronto Lumber Company.

“When anybody looks back at their life … it’s probably a whirlwind.”

The journey began in 1980, when Fuller and her first husband Tom Hoag bought the Toronto lumber yard from Andy and Mary Jirgens.
