Doris Ullman

Doris Elaine Ullman, 91, of Morehead City, passed away Thursday, June 3, 2021, at Crystal Coast Hospice House in Newport.

A private service will be held at a later date.

Doris was born Oct. 26, 1929, to Erik Jakob and Kanelia Adophina Fagerlund in Jersey City, N.J. Doris and her husband, Earl, moved to Morehead City from New Jersey in 1992, upon her retirement, following a long career with Nobel Industries, where she was an executive assistant and office manager for its North American operations.

During her time in North Carolina, Doris became active with the Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum, where she chaired the Junior Sailing Program committee for many years. She was also a longtime member of the Crystal Coast Choral Society, not only as one of the group’s sopranos, but also serving on the society’s board. Additionally, Doris was involved in the Brandywine Bay community, where she and Earl built their home. Some may remember her as “the great gatekeeper.”

She is survived by her two children, Karin Glander and Douglas Ullman and wife Barbara; daughter-in-law, Deborah Ullman; and grandchildren, Mark Glander and wife Amanda, Deric Ullman and wife Jenny, Drew Ullman, Kristen Ullman, Erika Glander and Marissa Kovar and husband Spencer. She is also survived by two great-grandchildren, George and Charlie Ullman.

Doris was preceded in death by her husband, Earl Ullman; son, Keith Ullman; and her parents.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Doris' name may be made to Crystal Coast Choral Society, P.O. Box 1954, Swansboro, NC 28584 or online at
