Carolyn Ruth Bullard


(August 2, 1954 – September 8, 2022)

Carolyn Bullard, born in Hico, Texas on August 2, 1954, to parents Justin Bullard, Jr. and Charleta (Kirkland) Bullard, passed away peacefully at home with her daughter by her side, on September 8, 2022, in Midlothian, Texas at age 68.

Carolyn was a Christian who spent her life in selfless service to others. She took great pride in her career as an Activity Director at Village Nursing Home in Hico, Texas, then later as a Home Health Aide. Carolyn took great interest in her children and even coached their soccer and baseball teams. Her greatest joy was her grandkids, and her favorite title was “Gigi”, and her daughter lovingly called her “Ruthie”. Carolyn loved to read and to watch old westerns, and the tv shows Law & Order SVU, and NCIS.

Carolyn is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Patsy Shelton; and brother, Jerrel Bullard.

Surviving Carolyn are her son, Mark (Candace) Cather; daughter, Melissa (Chris) Rust; grandsons, Brody Cather, Matthew Cather, and Paul Rust; granddaughter, Emily Ruth Rust; brother Clifford (Anita) Bullard; sister, Peggy (Donald) Campbell; sister-in-law, Linda Bullard; and numerous nieces and nephews. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to her sister, Peggy Campbell, niece Teresa Herren, and to Becki Esch for helping us grant her final wish of passing peacefully at her home.
