Naoma "Lynn" Pulliam

Naoma Pulliam, of Tulsa, passed peacefully at Clarehouse Thursday, February 11, 2016, after fighting a stoic battle with cancer. She was 62.

Lynn was born June 12, 1953 in Tampa, Florida, to parents Ninelle and Marshall Pulliam. She lived in many great cities as the child of an Air Force Dad. She graduated from Midwest City High School in 1971 and proudly, Oklahoma State University in 1975...GO POKES!

Lynn was employed by The Williams Companies in 1975, and became Human Resources Director with Williams Realty Company. She later moved to Dallas, Texas. She worked for Fina Oil, Brinker Companies and Blockbuster, before becoming self-employed as a United States Postal Mediation Specialist. Lynn recently moved to Denver, Colorado to work as Human Resources Director for NGL Energy, which was the highlight of her professional career and according to Lynn, the best job she ever had. It deeply grieved Lynn to take leave of absence when she became ill. It was her hope and utmost desire to return to the staff and company she loved so much.

Lynn gathered many dear friends along her journey in life and treasured those friendships dearly. She was always eager to volunteer, helped all and gave generously of herself, time and resources.

Lynn is survived by her son, Jay Pulliam; sister, Terry Pulliam Byrd; niece, Kristen Schiele; and nephew, Chad Schiele.

Lynn requested that in lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Clarehouse.
