Share Obituary!

Jean A. Kula, devoted wife, loving mother, doting grandmother, dear aunt and friend passed away on Friday, January 26, 2024 at her home in Enola, PA. She was 94. 

Jean was born April 30, 1929 to Anton and Pauline Nicpan, the youngest of 6 children, in Waukegan, IL, where she also graduated from High School. Jean met her husband Walter Kula in North Chicago, IL where they married and raised 3 daughters. The couple later relocated to Cumberland County, PA. 

Jean led a full and active life. She was an accomplished seamstress, spending hours sewing clothes for herself and her daughters as they grew up saving leftover fabric to make quilts and aprons. She was also an excellent cook and enjoyed hosting large gatherings for family and friends, trying out new recipes on them. It wasn’t unusual to hear her say she was busy “cooking for a crowd”. Jean was artistic and extremely proud of her wood carvings gifting them to family members to decorate their homes. She also had a green thumb, loved gardening and worked at Pealer’s Flower Shop for 8 years. She loved reading and volunteered at the East Penn Library, enjoyed playing pinochle at Enola Schaner Adult Center and enjoyed traveling around the U.S. and to other countries with her husband. She was a devout Catholic and an active member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Enola.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, Walter. She is survived by her 3 daughters Carol (Larry) Blackwood, Judy (Robert) Bell, and Christine Kula; grandsons Joseph (Amanda) Bell and Christopher Bell (Lauren Nye) as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She will be deeply missed.

A mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, February 2, 2024 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 225 Salt Rd, Enola, PA 17025.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Central PA, 1320 Linglestown Rd, Harrisburg, PA 17110.

The Sullivan Funeral Home is honored to serve the Kula family.
