December 07, 1926 - December 11, 1987 

Everett Mullins was born 07 Dec 1926  to the late Lindsay Mullins and Vina Mullins. He passed away from this life on December 11, 1987. Making his stay here on the earth. 
61 years and 4 days. He met Myrtle Denney Mullins and the two were married 1951. Five children were born to this union. Danny Mullins of Waynesburg, KY; Patsy Dowell, 
Waynesburg, KY; Charles Mullins, Crab Orchard, Ky; Phyllis Smith of Stanford, KY and Sandra Mullis lived only seven days and went to live with the angels in Heaven. 

He had two brothers who preceded him in death, Chester Mullins and Walter Mullins. Three sisters remain, Marie Barnard, Scottsburg, Indiana, Ruby Denney of Columbus,

Everett never joined a church here on earth. He believed in the Old Regular Baptist and we believe he was to that church that the Lord is coming back for very soon. He told 
Myrtle he believed the Lord had forgiven him of his sins in 1981. He attended the Crab Orchard Church of Old Regular Baptist as long as he was able to go. 
He seemed to enjoy the preaching and singing so very much. We believe he is enjoying the singing of angels over in that happy land where cancer and death don't come. 
When I would visit him at his home, he would greet me with a smile, although he would be so sick.

Written by his wife and Elder Murl F. Caudill
