Luree Mildred (Hinrichsen) Ullman of rural Pawnee City passed away on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 at the Pawnee County Memorial Hospital at the age of 91. She was born on February 20, 1929 to John and Mildred (Reis) Hinrichsen at their home in Richfield, Nebraska. She was fourth of five brothers and one sister. She married James Ullman on November 15,1947. He was the love of her life and they celebrated 70 wonderful years of marriage just before his passing in December 2017. They lived in Omaha where their son Jim and daughter Mary were born. In 1952, they moved to a farm south of Pawnee City. There Luree enjoyed life on the farm dearly and working alongside her husband. She could do almost everything to keep the farm going, including driving grain trucks during harvest and tractors during planting and haying, plus she always made sure there was a full meal provided for the family or anyone that would stop by. The family traveled to the mountains frequently, fished in Minnesota and occasionally visited Ozarks. She was able to pack the camper on moments notice for many weekend camping and boating trips to places like Tuttle Creek, Medicine Creek, Harlan and the local Burchard Lake.
