Marilyn Wallace Hultman, 89, of Richland, WA, passed away on August 13, 2019 just a few weeks shy of her 90th birthday. She was born in Clay, KY to Charlie Bob Wallace and Mina Watson.

She was a graduate of Richland High School, class of 1947.  She enjoyed reunions and keeping in touch with her fellow Bombers. She was an active member of Central United Protestant Church and truly enjoyed her weekly Bible Study classes and missed not being able to attend during her final years. She worked for many years in uptown Richland at Lady Dawson. She enjoyed the business, people and the social aspects of working in the store. Marilyn was an active member of the Kadlec Ladies Auxiliary for 20 years.

Marilyn married her husband Raymond Forrest Hultman on December 18, 1948 and they continued to love one another for 60 years. With her husband, they enjoyed all family aspects of raising their two sons.  They had numerous family activities including full summers of youth baseball, camping, fishing, boating and water skiing.  She loved the outdoors with family and friends including for many years our annual vacation to Priest Lake, ID.

Retirement years with her husband afforded the opportunity of traveling in their motor home. Over the years visited almost all of the continental United States including Alaska.  They enjoyed being “snow birds” and wintering in Yuma, AZ for many years.

She was a very accomplished bowler and it was her personal favorite sport. For numerous years she participated in the Richland Women’s Majors League along with a second league where she teamed with her mother Mina.

Marilyn had countless friends, especially the “Birthday Girls”, always happy, smiling and eager to visit with them.  Her generosity and caring for her family and friends was enormous, always there to support others in any way that she could.

She loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Her final goals in life were to reach the age of 90 and to see her two newest expected great grandchildren.  She spoiled her three grandchildren every chance she could. 

Marilyn was preceded in death by her parents and her husband in 2009.

She is survived by her son, Michael and his wife Linda Hultman from Batesville, IN; grandson, Jeffrey and his wife Maggie Hultman; great grandson, Theodore Hultman all from Noblesville, IN; son, Steven and wife Sue Hultman from Pasco, WA; grandson, John and wife Amanda Hultman, great granddaughters Kelsey and Brooke Hultman from Pasco, WA; granddaughter, Stacy and her husband Thom Williams of Pasco, WA and her soon to be great grandchildren.

  • Marilyn was a good friend to my Mom, Opal DeVine. They bowled together for many years and remained in touch. Marilyn was a classy and kind lady who always had a smile and a happy word for everyone. May she rest in peace.

  • My heart felt sorrow for Marilyn's passing. Dear family, you had the best mother, grandmother there could ever be. I worked with Marilyn in the early 70's at Dawson Richards and graduated from high school with Mike. Marilyn had the most upbeat personality and faith. There will never ever be another Marilyn. Peace be with the family; hold her memories close to your heart. I know I will.

  • It doesn't matter how old we are or how prepared we think we are, losing a parent is a huge loss. We are praying for the Lord's deepest comfort for the entire family. So happy for the hope of Heaven!!

  • Marilyn & Ray were such good friends; it's hard to remember all our great times together; probably in 1994 when they took a group motor home trip to Alaska at the time we were visiting Gale & Cal in Fairbanks.. Along with the Prichard's and Sobotka's, we were able to spend our daughter Gale's July 4th birthday together. Such fun! Your parents were sincere, friendly, caring Christian people, and I will never forget them or our numerous get togethers. We often discussed our Richland Bomber ties, and occasionally had a few basketball refereeing comments for your Dad. He always took in stride. They will be missed. You're fortunate to have had them for so many years. God bless you and your families.
