Obituary

Ceel’s friends and family will remember her for her love of the outdoors, gardening, and adventure, her easy laugh and smile, and most of all her unwavering faith in God and desire to help others.

Lucille ‘Ceel’ Agee Ullman died peacefully on May 4, 2021, after a long illness. She was 88. Ceel was predeceased by her beloved husband of 58 years, Henry ‘Hank’ Ullman and by her sister, Nini Dinmore. She is survived by her children Carie Ullman Michael (David Michael) of Newton, MA, Mollie Ullman Cullere (Xavie Cullere) of Newton, MA, and Henry ‘Bear’ Ullman of Lexington, KY, and her grandchildren Andreu Cullere, Xavier Cullere, Madeleine Michael, Adrian Michael, Stella Ullman, and Leah Ullman.

Ceel was the youngest daughter of Madeleine and Hamilton Pope Agee, and was born and raised in Manoa Valley, Hawaii where her father served as Director of the Experiment Station of the Hawaii Sugar Planter’s Association. As an elementary schooler on Oahu during wartime, Ceel walked to Punahou for years carrying a gas mask, and her family home became a make-shift officers’ club. After graduating from Punahou, Ceel went on to receive training as a nurse at the University of Washington and did graduate work in Maternal and Child Health at UCLA. Ceel met Hank in a journalism class at UCLA, and within 3 weeks, they were engaged to be married.

In 1963, Ceel moved back to Manoa Valley with Hank, and later to Aiea Heights, also on Oahu. During this time, Ceel worked as a nurse at what was then The Queen’s Hospital. In 1973, Ceel and Hank left Honolulu and moved to Maui to raise their kids in a more rural environment. On Maui, Ceel taught nursing at both Maui Memorial Hospital and Maui Community College. Ceel and Hank farmed their own half-acre, with self-sufficiency in mind. As a working mom with lots to do, Ceel’s habit was to get dinner started in the kitchen and then head outside to tend her vegetable and rose gardens. Slightly burned dinners were the norm. Always up for fun, Ceel would often throw the kids, dogs, and a rescue goat from Molokini, in the Volkswagen bus for impromptu hiking and camping trips around Maui.

Throughout their marriage, church and religion were mainstays of Hank and Ceel’s day-to-day lives together. In 1984, after considerable planning, they became Appointed Missionaries to the Episcopal Diocese of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, where they served as schoolteachers for 6 years. In 1989, they returned to live briefly in Honolulu, before settling in Alum Bridge, West Virginia on an 86-acre homestead they would go on to enjoy for 22 years. There, Ceel continued nursing, serving as a nursing supervisor at Stonewall Jackson and Sharp Hospitals and teaching nursing at WV Wesleyan College. In retirement, Ceel kept herself busy by bringing communion to members of her parish who were unable to attend services themselves, and by visiting federal inmates who otherwise would not have any visitors as a volunteer with Prisoner Visitation and Support.

In 2016, with growing health concerns, Ceel and Hank moved to a nursing home in Newton, Massachusetts to be near their daughters. Ceel’s family wants to acknowledge the extraordinary care that Ceel has received at Chetwynde Healthcare. Throughout the COVID pandemic, the staff there provided loving, compassionate care even when it required putting their own lives in jeopardy.

Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Prisoner Visitation and Support .
