Cullman , Louise Bloomingdale.
CULLMAN-Louise Bloomingdale 95, of Stamford, Connecticut, passed away in her Jamaican home surrounded by family members on March 24, 2014 following a short period of ill health. An avid conservationist and animal lover who enjoyed creating paintings for family and friends, Mrs. Cullman served on the board of the Wildlife Conservation Society, and with her late husband, Edgar Cullman Sr., was an ardent philanthropist. Together, they were early contributors to the Mill River Collaborative and supporter of the Stamford Museum and Nature Center as well as the Bartlett Arboretum. Mr. and Mrs. Cullman were life long residents of Stamford. One of their traditions was the Christmas season lighting of a towering pine on the corner of their farm on High Ridge Road and Hickory. This marked the season for many of their neighbors. Her grandfather Lyman along with his brother Joseph, were co- founders of Bloomingdale's Department Store. Louise was a fourth generation New Yorker. Her most important legacy was her love for her family and her welcoming homes in Stamford, New York, Jamaica and Canada. She is survived by her three children: Lucy Danziger, Edgar Cullman, and Susan Cullman as well as their three spouses, Mike Danziger, Ellie Cullman and John Kirby in addition to nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
