“Moma Ettie” Mullins was the daughter
Millie and James Mullins. She
was preceded in death
by three of her four children, Hazel
LaBombard, Willie J.
Mullins and Walter C. Mullins. Leaving
her, is a daughter, Helen M. Church,
and great and great-great
grandchildren to numerous to count.
She married Thomas Jefferson Mullins
at the age of sixteen and
lost Daddy Tom in November, 1964. She
later married Judd Honeycutt
and was well cared for until his
passing. She chose to live the rest of
her life as Mullins.
In the summer
of 1963, she followed her faith
to the water along
with her daughters, Hazel and Helen.
They were baptized by her
son-in-law, Elder Dexter Church, and
she held to the cross until her
left us all with a pocket full of
especially memories of a second
breakfast for all her grandchildren
when we gathered at her house to catch
the school bus on Lynn Camp.
We played in her yard more than our
own, we were always welcomed
at the table, and every now and then,
“you youngens better
not play in my flowers.”
around 1995, she became unable to
care for herself.
Sister Helen and Brother Dexter took
her to Big Ridge until Moma’s
stroke. She was lovingly cared for by
her grandson, Thomas La
Bombare of Callahan, Florida, until
her hospitalization shortly before
her 99th birthday. Her Savior very
gently dimmed the light on
September 13, 2004. On September 15,
he brought her home.
The grieving is dulled by the
knowledge of salvation. Sleep gently,
dear one, and meet us at the gate.
