Jane (Bystrom) Kullman

January 31, 1921 ~ April 30, 2021 (age 100)


Jane Lou Kullman, 100, of Red Wing, went to be with her Lord, on Friday, April 30, 2021 at her home at Potter’s Ridge.  She was born on January 31, 1921, in Red Wing to Magnus and Anna (Wahlquist) Bystrom.  She graduated from Red Wing Central High School and then worked as a painter and artist for few years at Red Wing Pottery.  On June 30, 1945, she was married to Basil Kullman and to this union they were blessed with five children.  They lived in Red Wing until 1956 when they moved to Hastings.  In April 15, 1981, they returned to Red Wing.  For over 40 years she was a day care provider.  Basil died on June 14, 1981.  She lived at the Downtown Plaza for a number of years before moving to Potter’s Ridge in 2014.  Jane was an amazing mother and person.  Her love and care for children over the years was heartwarming.  Many children, now adults remark to this day how they enjoyed having Jane take care of them. She was also a life-long artist, always being creative.  As life slowed down for Jane, she spent time watching TV, going for rides, along with listening to and playing music.  Most all, she enjoyed being surrounded with the love of her family and was a devout Christian.

Jane is survived by her five children, Gary (Carole) Kullman of Stillwater, Keith (Pat) Kullman of Hastings, Kent (Karla) Kullman of Waconia, Richard (Sharon McCord) Kullman of Red Wing and Shari (Michael) Chorney of Red Wing; six grandchildren, Jennifer and Toby Kullman, Kate (Tim) Andrews, Shane (Becky) Kullman, and Kristina and Heidi Kullman; nine great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Basil; two sisters, Shirley Mehrkens and Gladys Matthews and two brothers, Marvin and Stan Bystrom.
