Nora  Moore Mullins

     It is with a sad heart that I’ll try to write the obituary
of my precious, loving mother, Nora Moore Mullins.
Nora Moore Mullins was born on March 16, 1929 and
departed this life on Sunday, March 27, 2005 at her home.
She married her loving husband of 54 years, Ira E. Mullins, on June 24, 1950. She was preceded
in death by her parents, Gilbert and Elizabeth Moore; three brothers,
Guy, Ray and Leonard Moore; her identical twin sister, Cora M.
Mullins; and one daughter, Barbara Jean Mullins. She is survived by
four sons, Ronnie Mullins, Donnie Reid Mullins and Jeffrey Mullins,
all of Coeburn, Virginia, and Paul Jesse Mullins of Clintwood, Virginia;
three daughters, Joyce Marlene Stanley of Clintwood, Virginia,
Susie Jo Swindlehurst of Salt Lake City, Utah and Anita Mullins
Nayagam of Clintwood, Virginia; and two sisters, Opal Dutton of
Clintwood, Virginia and Oma Mullins of Coeburn, Virginia. Fourteen
grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren also survive. She
was a member of the Sweet Home Church since July 18, 1971. She
was a deaconess from June 17, 1995 until her death. She loved her
church and was a faithful member. She attended as long as her health
permitted her to go. She was a kind and gentle person. She always
had a smile on her face and love in her heart. Mom surpassed cancer
and many surgeries and never once complained. Her compassion to
strive on will always be with me and my family. Mom lost her twin
sister two years ago. She missed her so badly. It was like she had lost
her best friend but I know in my heart that they are together again.
Mom had a green thumb and loved tending to her flowers. As her
spring flowers begin to bloom God added Mom to His own garden
of flowers. I know Mom is at peace now in the arms of Jesus. We
have lost a precious mother and friend but our loss is Heaven’s gain.
Her pain and suffering are over. She was a loving and devoted wife,
mother, grandmother, neighbor and friend. There was nothing she
wouldn’t do for her family and she loved spending time with them.
She had great love for her church where she could enjoy the joys of
Jesus. We will suffer a great void in our lives with the passing of our
beloved mother but, thanks be unto Jesus, we can be with her again
someday in Heaven.
