Bulli, Evelyn Alice (Lewis) Long-time Papillion resident Evelyn Alice Lewis Bulli, formerly of Cherry, IL, died in Omaha on September 13, 2015. The second daughter of Howard and Edna (Williams) Lewis, she was born in Cherry on February 9, 1925. Ev was a graduate of Hall High School, Beloit College, and a member of the American Association of University Women. In her youth she was a skilled equestrienne. She married Dante Bulli of Cherry in 1947, and his lengthy military career took them around the world. A model military wife, she was consistently involved with the charitable efforts of the Air Force Officer's Wives Club. For almost forty years she was a high school English and literature teacher in many locations including Fairbanks, Alaska. She and Dan greatly appreciated decades of world travel. Her unfailing good nature and remarkable competence in all situations made lasting impressions on her family and friends, as did her knowledge and love of great literature. Her parents, sister and brother-in-law, Vernon Ghiglieri preceded her in death. Ev is survived by Dan, daughter Marilyn of Boston, son John, daughter-in-law Julie and granddaughter Nan, of Springfield IL, and grandson Alex of Los Angeles. Two nieces, Susan Babcock and Sally Magnuson reside with their families in Wisconsin and Florida. Evelyn was a memorable personality and will be greatly missed. Burial will take place in Evelyn's home town of Cherry, Illinois on Friday September 18. Donations may be made in Evelyn's name to Alzheimer's Association, 480 Pleasant Street, Watertown, MA 02472 (please note her name in the memo line of your check) or online in her name at www.alz.org.
