Bula’s life began Sept. 25, 1916, in Argonia, Kansas. She was a daughter of John and Eva (Dine) Wilcox. Bula was united in marriage to Edward M. Good on Dec. 10, 1939, at the family home in Mulvane.
She was a graduate of the Wesley School of Nursing and met Edward when he was her patient in Wichita. Edward and Bula moved to his hometown of Marion, and Bula worked the majority of her career as a nurse at St. Luke Hospital in Marion.
She was a faithful member of Eastmoor United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Women.
Bula was active in the Coterie Club and the Stitch and Chatter Club. She was a gifted quilter and had catalogued more than 100 of her quilts. Bula was a Red Cross swimming instructor volunteer and there is even a story of her piloting a biplane in her early years.
Her greatest joy was her family, which includes sons Bill (and wife Jane) of Littleton, Colorado; Tom (and wife Cathy) of Fresno, California; Bob (and wife JoAnn) of Marion; and Mike of Springfield, Missouri; grandchildren Matthew, Christopher, Brian, Micshel Kalkowski, Hayley Caeton, Ethan, Oliver, Amy Yen, Rebecca Robison, and Laura Good; 17 great-grandchildren; and her sister, Leila Pennick of Hutchinson.
She was followed in death by daughter-in-law Nancy Good and preceded in death by her parents, husband Edward, siblings Burke Wilcox, and Paul Wilcox, and an infant sister, Lucille.
