She married John G. Bulman on March 30, 1963, at Nash. After her marriage, Mrs. Bulman lived in Mill Creek before moving to the Ada area. She taught school at Stratford for one year before the family returned to the Mill Creek area in 1976. She taught home economics at Sulphur from 1977 until her retirement in 1999.
