Catherine ‘Louise’ Bullard, 88 years old, born December 24, 1932, entered into final rest with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on the evening of January 6, 2021. Louise was born in Pawnee, Oklahoma to Charles and Dovie Mynear, and was the fourth of seven children. After living in Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl era, the family relocated to California, settling in the San Joaquin Valley in 1942 when she was nine years old. This is also where she later met her husband and after a short courtship they married on August 12, 1948 and began their beautiful journey together giving birth to and raising nine children. Despite marrying young, they stood strong in their faith and love for one another and were married for 64 years until her husband passed away in 2012.
These are merely details and don’t truly reflect who she was to those who knew and loved her. She was a devoted wife, cherished mother, grandmother, great grandmother and recently became a great-great grandmother. She was an anchor for a large family and dearly loved by all. She was a woman who survived some hard times, tragedies and many losses through the years but had an unshakeable belief in the sovereignty of God over all creation and circumstances. She had a way about her that was a true example of beauty and grace and will be greatly missed by many.
Louse is survived by her children, Deborah (Mike) Harrold of Bow, WA, Bill Bullard of Sedro-Woolley, WA, Carolyn (Duane) Moore of Ellensburg, WA, Brad Bullard of Clear Lake, WA, Ruth (Mark) Spaeth of Concrete, WA and Sheila Milholland of Marysville, WA; siblings, Eula Lowry of Klamath Falls, OR, Don Mynear of Oakdale, CA, and Frances Barth or Eureka, CA; 19 grandchildren; 38 great grandchildren and 1 great, great-grandson.
Louise was preceded in death by both of her parents; brothers, James, Raymond and John Mynear; husband, Lowal Bullard; sons, Tom, Chuck and Jack Bullard; grandson, Russell Bullard.
Due to current restrictions, there will not be a service at this time, but plan to have a Celebration of Life later this spring. Please share your memories of Louise and sign the online guest register.
