Carol is survived by her husband of 56 years, Donald Bulson; children, Nancy and Kip Kauffman of Holland, son Andy and Laurie Bulson of Inverness, Ill.; and eight grandchildren, Sierra and Logan Bulson, Benjamin, William, and Hillary Kauff-man, Drew, Maddy, and Jack Bulson; and one great-granddaughter Everleigh Bulson.

A life-long resident of Hol-land and Saugatuck, Carol graduated from Saugatuck High School in 1960. In ad-dition to raising her three children, Carol worked as a teacher’s aide for the Hol-land Public Schools before retiring in 2005. She was also active in various com-munity organizations and was a member of Commu-nity Church of Douglas.
A creative and resilient woman with a great sense of humor, Carol enjoyed draw-ing and painting, entertaining family and friends, and was always an advocate for those in need.
Carol loved gardening and flowers, but especially those that were pink, her favorite color.
In spite of Carol’s coura-geous battle with a progres-sive illness, her tenacious spirit and her faith never faltered. The family would like to thank the staff at Resthaven for their loving care.
