CAROLYN ANN HULL
Carolyn Ann Hull was born November 8, 1936 in Chico, California and entered into rest on February 7, 2023 in San Francisco, California.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Sam and Anna Cody, her sister Katherine Mapes, and her husband of 66 years, Richard Hull.
She is survived by her brother, Sam Cody, and her 5 children: Nancy Hubert (Kent), Joann Grether, Richard Hull, Jr., Carol Lubinsky and Douglass Hull (Joaquin Guerrero). She is also survived by Ben and Leanne Sevdy, and her 7 grandchildren and 4 great-grand children.
Carolyn loved her life in Ord Bend, CA. Although she traveled extensively in her lifetime, she was happiest when she was at home in Ord Bend on her ranch. Having her family and other visitors stop by brought her great joy.
She worked for the United States Postal Service as a rural mail carrier. She was known throughout the Bayliss/Glenn/
Ord Bend areas as the “Mail Lady” and always had a piece of gum for the children.
Her greatest sense of accomplishment was raising five children who all graduated from college. It was a source of pride to her that her children all earned a college degree.
She was well-known for her cooking and her desire to share meals and treats with anyone. She provided daily meals to several shut-ins and goodies to friends and acquaintances throughout the community. Her children and grandchildren knew to arrive at her house hungry, knowing something tasty awaited all who entered her home. It was a source of comfort to be in her house and smell a freshly baked loaf of bread. She is famous near and far for her English Toffee and Honey Carmels, which were a part of many peoples’ Christmas traditions. There will be a celebration of life for Carolyn on Saturday, February 25th at 2:00 p.m. It will be held at the Ord Community Hall at 3241 Highway 45 in Glenn, CA.
Her family encourages all to come hungry, as feeding people was one of Carolyn’s greatest pleasures. A meal will be served in her honor. In lieu of flowers, her children request that a donation be made the Jesus Center in Chico, CA or to Smile Train.
