Margaret E. Hulan

Dec. 29, 1933 - March 4, 2019

Margaret Elizabeth Hulan nee Freeman passed away Monday, March 4, 2019, in her home surrounded by family and friends. Margaret was born December 29, 1933, in Nashville, TN. A member of the National Honor Society, she graduated from Nashville's Central High School, where her academic success qualified her for attendance to any state college. She chose, instead, to start her professional career immediately in customer communications with Southern Bell and, subsequently, office staff management in the insurance brokerage business.

In 1954, she met Henry D Hulan, from Kerens, TX, then serving at Fort Campbell, KY. They were married August 17, 1957, the beginning of their 62-year marriage. Margaret dedicated herself to raising their children and managing family businesses. She was a Cub Scout den mother, a passionate animal lover, world traveler, and an avid reader.

Margaret was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas C. and Lillian Freeman.

She is survived by her husband, Henry D Hulan of Waco, TX; son, Brian (Farzaneh) Hulan of Altadena, CA; daughter, Melinda (Mark) Johnson of Waco, TX; son, Stephen Hulan of Rancho Cucamonga, CA; grandchildren, Sara Hulan (John Crestani) of Westlake Village, CA, Taylor Johnson (Taylor) of Newnan, GA, Torey Johnson (Zach First) of Houston, TX, Zachary and Wyatt Hulan of Rancho Cucamonga, CA; and, great-granddaughter, Lillian Mae Crestani of Westlake Village, CA.

My prayers and sympathy are extended to the family and loved ones of Mrs. Hulan. Keep your faith in the resurrection promised at John 5:28, 29. Soon God will put an end to all sickness, sorrow and pain. He will also do away with our enemy death as promised at 1 Corinthians 15:26. Pray for God's kingdom to come as Jesus taught us to do. Please be comforted by the words expressed at Revelation 21:3, 4. Remember: God keeps His promises and it is impossible for God to lie!
