Jean Bouler

NORMAN — Jean Bouler, 86, of Norman, passed away Monday, Oct. 14, 2013. Jean was born to Frank and Sadie Sidoti on Aug. 24, 1927, in Bloomfield, N.J. She and her husband, Willie Lee Bouler, were married in January 1956. She graduated from Bloomfield High School in Bloomfield, N.J.

In the 1950s, she worked for the Port Authority in New York City, as well as at many military installations throughout the U.S. and Madrid, Spain. She and her husband moved from Gulfport, Miss., to Norman in 1995 to spend their retirement years closer to family.

Jean’s vibrant and humorous personality touched the lives of many colleagues, friends and family, and she will be missed dearly.

She and her friends enjoyed dancing to the big bands of the 1940s at the ballrooms in New York City. Whenever Frank Sinatra appeared in concert in Bloomfield, N.J., Jean would leave her high school classes, only to be found seated in the front row of the theater.

She and her husband, Willie, enjoyed many outdoor activities, including camping in Montana. She also enjoyed sewing and ceramics. Jean always had a special place in her heart for her husband, children and grandchildren. One of the happiest places in her home was the kitchen, where she delighted in preparing delicious Italian meals for her family.

Jean was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Sadie Sidoti; her brother, Philip Sidoti; and her granddaughter, Jennifer Granier.

Survivors include her husband, Willie Lee Bouler of Norman; her daughter, Judie Granier (Jim) of Littleton, Colo.; her daughter, Debbie Bugg (David) of Norman; her grandson, Brandon Granier of Littleton, Colo.; her grandson, Bryan Bugg (Lindsey) of Denver; her granddaughter, Melissa Jennings (Brandon) of Oklahoma City; her grandson, Blake Bugg of Norman; and brothers Anthony Sands of California and Nick Sidoti of New Jersey.
