It’s with great honor, a heavy heart, and the help of the Lord that we will try to write the obituary of my sissy,
your wife, mommy, mamaw, and special friend, Brenda Mullins Slone. She was the daughter of the late Albert
(Zion) Mullins and Ollie Vergie (Everage) Mullins who preceded her in death. She was born on February 2,
1949, and departed this life on June 18, 2006, making her stay on earth 57 years, 4 months and 17 days.
Early in life she met and married Tommy Ray Slone on October 22, 1966, and to this union was born seven
children; one son, Scotty Ray Slone, who also preceded her in death. She leaves to mourn: her husband,
Tommy Slone; three sons, Steven (Leanne) Slone, Shawn (Karen) Slone, and Jonathan (Jovina) Slone; three
daughters, Sherry (Chris) Baker, Jacquelyn (Nick) Slone, and Erica (Dereck) Slone; seventeen grandchildren,
Brandon, Becky, Brittany, Zack, Katie, Alora, Jordan, Racheal, Austin, Abby, Cydnee, Cody, Daniel, Chase,
Aaron, Zander, and Hannah; one great- grandchild, Jaxon Gage Short; five brothers, Alger (Cinda) Mullins, Burl
(Oralee) Mullins, Vick (Irene) Mullins, Morgan Mullins, and Dean (Cindy) Mullins; and three sisters; Linda
(Duane) Hall, Charlotte Cable, and Gloria (Robert) Dials.
She was a member of the Happy Home Church and helped as deaconess at the time of her passing. She
loved her Lord, but that dreadful disease cancer that she fought with a long time over took her as her body got
weaker and her faith got stronger in the Lord. Even in all of her sickness and pain she would help brighten up
your day and worried about people that didn’t have the Lord in their life. Brenda would talk about her family that
the Lord had blessed her to have and prayed many prayers for them. But, Mommy’s hope was not in this
world, but it has left us so sad. We will have her memory and that special love that she gave us all. But, just
think, in that little hospital room even though we didn’t see the angels that came to take her home I felt their
presence. Brenda loved us all, but Jesus called her and said, “rise up my love, my fair one, and come away
with me for the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth and the time of the
singing of the birds is come and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.” She left happy and God has made a
way for all to meet again in Heaven, but we have to go there through his son, Jesus, for He paid our way.
