BULMER, Jacqueline C. (Oliver)
BULMER, Jacqueline C. (Oliver) Born in Dublin, Ireland on May 26, 1928, with a strong will and capable mind. From childhood, she was a lover of animals. Particularly, Golden Retrievers. However, she concluded her life with a Min Pin, her true companion. Jackie named her 'Happy' and she absolutely adored her. Jackie met and married her Air Force Sergeant husband, Jim Bulmer, while both were in Great Britain in 1954. Proudly, she became a U.S. citizen and traveled with Jim moving to a dozen military assignments ending at Edwards Air Force Base. Jackie always worked in retail business sharing her lilting brogue with all. At Edwards she progressed to become the commissary produce manager. The best years of her life were when she and Jim lived where they could have and enjoy their horses, burros and dogs. Jackie was a friend and contributor to many Rescues throughout this valley. She was an old fashioned Ôproper lady and extremely generous. Jim developed Alzheimers and Jackie took care of him until he needed continual nursing care. He died in 2009. Jackie needed to reduce her obligations and moved from acreage to Mayflower Gardens. She lived there nearly 12 years where she acquired her beloved ÔHappy. The final four years of Jackies life were plagued with health issues and surgeries. She was determined to recover and go shopping. She did until the end of this May. She was worn out! She succumbed to renal failure on June 7, 2015, while living at an assisted living facility. Her unique way of thinking and speaking, her sense of justice and her many kindnesses are missed. She left friends and fellow dog lovers across the globe. She wanted no services and joined Jim at the Bakersfield National Cemetery, June 24, 2015. God Bless Her with Joy and Peace.
