Passed away peacefully on December 31, 2020 at her home at the age of 94. Laureen was born in Winnipeg, to Agnes Helen Tucker and Harold George Tucker, where she resided her entire adult life.

She was predeceased by her parents and her sister Eleanor Ann Spafford of Ottawa.

She is survived by her husband, John, and her three beloved sons and their families: Robert (Susan) who live in Kenora and their daughters Carolyn (Nick Gilbert) and their children Amelia and Willa of Auckland, New Zealand, and Anna and her partner Scott Tallon of Winnipeg; Michael in Winnipeg and his sons Jacob (Mexico) and Torben (Winnipeg); and Philip (Elizabeth Bannister) and their daughter Julia (Laureen’s godchild) in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Laureen is also survived by her brother John H. Tucker, his wife Shirley and their family in Toronto. Laureen’s family was her dearest joy.

In 1952 she married W. John A Bulman and they lived 68 years together until her passing. They shared many special experiences over the years.

Laureen was devoted to her family and was proud of them. One of Laureen’s most memorable qualities was her creativity – she loved to write light-hearted poems and stories for children and design outdoor games like the string game and the inside out game for her grandchildren at the lake.

Laureen felt blessed to have many wonderful friends that she made over the years and deeply missed those who predeceased her. She recognized how fortunate she was to have the support and caring of such special people. Her church was John and Laureen’s extended family and she always admired the selflessness of the Crescent Fort Rouge United members and ministers.

Laureen was a participant in women’s interests and served on a variety of committees. She served the Jr. St. Agnes/Chown Guild of the Children’s Hospital for 24 years, serving on the Executive for several years. She also took an active role on the Board of the University of Winnipeg’s Women’s Committee for several years. The University of Winnipeg was close to both Laureen and John’s hearts and their work was recognized with the establishment of the Bulman Student Centre. She was on the board of the Prairie Theatre Exchange and was an active participant in the life of Crescent Fort Rouge United Church since her marriage serving in many capacities.

Laureen was on the Board of the YWCA for a few years where she was asked to recreate their newsletter. Calling it “bridges” she introduced articles by women prominent in their fields to inform and advise members on issues relevant to women.

As the family grew, Laureen made time to enlarge her gardens and develop her talent of painting in oils. She belonged to a number of art groups and showed her work at Medea Gallery. Her work is in many private collections. She was a regular attendant at the Winnipeg Symphony, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, theatre and art galleries.

Our family would like to extend our thanks and appreciation for her doctors, nurses, Grace Hospital and Comforts of Home-Care.

In accordance with Laureen’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Crescent Fort Rouge United Church or the University of Winnipeg Foundation – W. John A Bulman Scholarship fund.
