Doreen Marie (Jantz) Bulleman of Ocala, Florida, passed away August 12, 2021, at the age of 89.

Doreen was born in Alpena, Michigan to Emil and Esther Jantz. She graduated from Cadillac High School in Cadillac, Michigan, and from Michigan State University, where she met and married her first husband. They raised four children in California and Washington state, then moved to Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands, in 1973, where they operated a small hotel. It was on Grand Turk that she met Christian Bulleman; they later married in 1982. His work as a radar technician took them from Grand Turk to Antigua, West Indies, and then to a number of locations across the U.S. Following his retirement, they built a lake home near Hawthorne, Florida, where they lived for many years before moving to Ocala.

Always musically inclined, Doreen was a fine soprano, sang in several church and community choirs, and also played the piano and organ. She enjoyed reading, quilting, needlework, painting, stained glass, and other arts and crafts. For more than a decade she volunteered her time at the Ocala Civic Theatre, for which she was recognized with several awards.

She is survived by her husband Chris and brother Alan Jantz, as well as children Karen Schuessler, and Glenn, Eric and Jay Gordon. Together with Chris’s own children, Doreen also leaves behind numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her son, Scott Gordon.

Though no formal memorial service will be conducted for Doreen, a private celebration of her life is planned for early October of this year. Charitable donations will be graciously accepted in her honor by the Ocala Civic Theatre.
