Doris Linnea Kula Obituary

Doris Linnea (Olson) Kula, 90, of East Hartford, CT, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 18, 2014 at the Riverside Health and Rehabilitation Center. Doris was born in Proctor, Vermont on October 1, 1923 to the late Emil and Ellen (Melen) Olson. She graduated from Proctor High School in 1941 and in 1943 moved to Connecticut. Doris was married to Edward Martin Kula on March 2, 1945, and they were married 52 years until her husband's death in 1997. Doris worked for Kula Photo Lab with her two sons up until her early eighties. She enjoyed music, playing the piano and always had a book to read. Doris loved family and that was the most important thing to her. She was very close to her daughters and went on many family trips with them. She was a loving soul and just wanted to be around people. All she wanted from the Riverside staff and patients was to hold their hand and kiss it. Doris is survived by her brother, Harold Olson and his wife, Mary of Colorado; her four children: Janet (Kula) Tylinski and her husband, Gary of Lebanon, CT, Gail (Kula) Myers and her husband, Larry of Suffield, CT, Brad Kula and his wife, Mary of East Hartford, CT, Gary Kula of Dover, NH; her six granddaughters: Karen Myers of Enfield, CT, Ren Myers and her partner, Kim Hooyboar of Jersey City, NJ, Lynn Kula-Watt and her husband, Chad of Somers, CT, Wendy Kula of New York, Briana Kula of Dover, NH and Taylor Reynolds of California. Doris is also survived by her four great-grandchildren: Zackaria Balutowski of Enfield, CT, Colin, Tyler and Hallie Watt of Somers, CT and her nephews and other extended family members and friends. Karen's son, Zackaria was the light in her eyes and he loved to go visit Great Grammy at both Suffield House and Riverside and he brought a smile to everyone's face. The family of Doris Kula wishes to thank the staff at the Riverside Health & Rehabilitation Center for the fabulous care they gave her in her twilight years who made her final journey peaceful. Relatives and friends are welcome to join the family on Saturday, July 26, 2014, from 10 am to 12 pm at the Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd., Enfield.
