Dr. Kerry E Bulman
Jul 01, 2016

Dr. Kerry E Bulman, 54, of Rochester left her earthly home on July 1st. She slipped away peacefully, surrounded by her amazing family and closest friends. Kerry was especially embraced by her children. The newly graduated Sara Lafrance, 18 and the incredibly handsome soccer star, Benjamin Lafrance, 15. Their father Gil Lafrance, was supportive as Kerry left this world to join her family in heaven. Kerry completed her education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa and set up her practice in the Wareham area. She was born in Boston, grew up in Randolph and was part of a large, loving, Irish, family. They were six siblings in a neighborhood filled with energetic kids, devoted parents and many friends. Kerry moved to Rochester 17 years ago and continued that wonderful neighborhood tradition. She loved her Rochester community and quickly became so involved and active. The neighborhood came alive as a direct result of her welcoming, beautiful way. Kerry so loved her friends. She was an avid member of a local book group and they did so much more than discuss books. They drank wine, ate great food, shared many laughs but mostly supported each other. It was never more evident than in Kerry's last days. These women were simply angels on earth. Whatever the need it was delivered. One of Kerry’s greatest accomplishments was her tireless work with ‘DI’. She, alongside her partner in crime and ‘Doll’ for life - Tina Rood, managed multiple self-funded Destination Imagination (DI) teams. DI is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization. Its’ purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. It focuses on learning in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning. DI is a perfect place to let your imagination flourish. DI is more than just a program or club, it is a life changing experience in which you form new friendships, learn new skills, and discover your own capabilities all while having fun. For more information on DI go to Kerry fought a long courageous battle. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 14- years- ago. She fought valiantly to raise her children, while all the while keeping her family on their toes with her ever present sense of humor. Kerry was a passionate gardener, she loved books, and earned the title of best cook in the family and she loved watching and discussing great movies. Kerry left nothing on the field. Her favorite place in the world was her late afternoon beach time under her tent with a glass of wine and Cheetos. In fact she was packed and ready to head to the Outer Banks with her family on their annual vacation when God called her instead to the sandy shores of heaven. Waiting to greet her in heaven are her father Thomas J “Bud” Bulman, her brother Thomas J Bulman Jr., and numerous aunts, uncles and grandparents. She leaves behind those she loved the most, Sara and Benjamin; her husband Dr. Gilbert O. Lafrance; her artistic momma Geraldine “Gerry” L (Powderly) Bulman; her beloved “dolls”, her five outrageously beautiful sisters: Beverly Tardiff and husband Richard (from Plymouth) along with their children Richie and Kerin and grandchildren; Nancy Marotta and husband Gary and their spirited boys; Nick, Sam and Jake; Paula Sullivan and husband Richard and their unique children Ryan, Kyle and Joe; Jane Bulman (‘That One’) and her beautiful daughter Jesse; and finally her baby brother Timothy Bulman, his wife Lisa and their two swimming champs, Emma and Grace. Last but certainly not least, her faithful companion, her black lab "Henry the Fearless". Henry was her guardian angel who, diagnosed with cancer himself, stubbornly refused to succumb, waiting instead for Kerry to cross over first. Hours after she left their home, Henry left too. He bounded after Kerry across eternity. Kerry asked that she not be mourned as much as remembered as someone who loved completely and lived life fully. In lieu of flowers we asked that you consider a donation to the Rochester based DI teams. We will be setting up an account in Kerry’s honor. There will more information on how you can contribute posted to this website in the coming days. We will be celebrating Kerry on Sunday, July 10th at 1 PM at St. Rita’s church, 113 Front Street, Marion, MA 02738 with a ‘Rockin’ reception to follow at the Mattapoisett YMCA which is located at 38 Reservation Road, Mattapoisett MA 02739.
