Ullery’s Homemade Ice Cream is a multigenerational business that began more than 30 years ago. Jim Ullery crafted a unique blend of ice cream that is hand mixed 5 gallons at a time and frozen using the old-fashioned method of salt and ice carefully churned to a creamy perfection by an antique hit and miss engine. As the requests to attend more events grew, their children, (Rod, Rhonda, and Robbie) joined Jim and Pat with each of their own concession trailers and antique engines.

The children of Jim and Pat Ullery have continued the homemade ice cream tradition in their own unique ways. Rodney & Tammy Ullery opened a storefront location to serve ice cream in Richmond, Indiana, and use their concession trailer at multiple Indiana events. Rob & Lorrie Ullery and Joe & Rhonda Kramer operate concession trucks, separately, all around the Ohio region.

In memory of our beloved cofounders, the Ullery’s Ice Cream family announces the passing of our beloved co-founders, Patricia “Pat” Anne Ullery(December 10, 2023) and her late husband Jim(April 10, 2010). These visionary entrepreneurs turned a dream into reality with the establishment of Ullery’s Ice Cream in 1993. Their legacy of love, laughter, and, of course, delicious ice cream, remains etched in the hearts of the community.

After Jim’s passing in 2010, Pat courageously along with her 3 children and families, shouldered the responsibility, continuing their dream with unwavering determination. She became the warm and familiar face behind the counter, spreading joy one scoop at a time. Pat wasn’t just a business pioneer; she was the matriarch of an ever-growing family. Her heart, as generous as the scoops she served, touched the lives of 12 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren, all of whom carry forward the Ullery legacy.

Both Pat and Jim were integral to the family and the business. Jim’s tinkering with his grandfathers 1913 Reeves 3HP antique engine began the journey of creating their timeless ice cream recipe. Together, they sold their first cup of ice cream at Lewisburg Historical Days in 1993, and from there, their business flourished. In 1995, Jim’s foresight led to the purchase of the first concession trailer, a pivotal move that significantly expanded their enterprise.

Throughout their journey, Pat and Jim faced the challenges of running a mobile ice cream business, moving supplies, coolers, and the iconic 500-pound engine. Their dedication was evident as they passed down concession trailers to their children and grandchildren, ensuring that Ullery’s Ice Cream became a multi-generational legacy.

Pat’s later years were spent at the heart of the business, surrounded by smiles and laughter, sharing the sweetness of Ullery’s Ice Cream with generations of customers. As we mourn the loss of these remarkable individuals, let their unwavering dedication, resilience, and passion continue to inspire us. May the legacy of Pat and Jim Ullery live on in the sweet memories shared at Ullery’s Ice Cream, a testament to a lifetime of love, hard work, and the joy they brought to countless lives.
