It is with a sad heart
that I’ll try to write
of my precious,
loving mother, Nora Moore Mullins.
Mullins was born on March 16, 1929 and
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;
Joyce Marlene Stanley of Clintwood, Virginia,
Swindlehurst of Salt Lake City, Utah and Anita Mullins
Clintwood, Virginia; and two sisters, Opal Dutton of
Virginia and Oma Mullins of Coeburn, Virginia. Fourteen
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
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
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,
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
but, thanks be unto Jesus, we can be with her again
someday in Heaven.
Written by son and daughter-in-law,
Paul and Cindy Mullins.
