Waynesburg woman dies in crash

A Waynesburg woman died in a single-vehicle crash over the weekend.

Flora W. Morgan, 82, of Ky. 328 West, Waynesburg, was pronounced dead at 11:45 a.m. Sunday at the scene after her vehicle ran off Ky. 328, Lincoln County Coroner Bill Demrow.

Morgan, who was driving alone, died instantly, Demrow said.

She was driving east toward Waynesburg when her vehicle dropped off the right shoulder of the road. She overcorrected, and the vehicle crossed the center line, according to a report by Trooper Bobby Amon.

Morgan overcorrected again to the right causing the vehicle to run off the right shoulder of the road. The car struck a culvert and tree before coming to a final rest in a ditch. Demrow said the door of the vehicle struck the tree. Morgan was not wearing a seat belt.

MULLINS, Robert
02 November 1929 - 15 January 2006

Gospel and Negro Spritual Singer died.

COVINGTON - Robert Mullins - the "old man" of the Northern Kentucky Brotherhood Singers - died Sunday at St. Elizabeth South Hospital. The Covington resident was 76.

The group is an all-male a cappella quintet that specializes in Negro spirituals and old gospel hymns. Mr. Mullins, who sang tenor and was the oldest member, was known for his trademark hats and the cigar that dangled from his mouth. The men started singing together about 18 years ago.

"From the beginning, they were a group of men singing loosely - some belonged to the Ninth Street Baptist Church Brotherhood," said his daughter Pamela Mullins of Covington.

They started out singing at weddings, funerals, birthday parties and folk festivals sponsored by the Kentucky Arts Council. Their popularity grew after they opened for Ray Charles before 10,000 people at the Ottawa Blues Festival in Canada. Since then, they have performed in nearly all of the 50 United States and in Spain, Portugal, Italy and Switzerland.

Mr. Mullins was born in Hall's Gap near Stanford in Lincoln County, Ky. He attended the schools in Stanford, then joined the Army. He moved to Covington in 1951, and worked for more than 20 years for John Hemmer Construction Co.  He lost his job when the company reorganized, so he did custodial work for Clopay Products until he retired around age 60.

He presided over a large and close-knit family - most of whom lived within walking distance of his Covington home. "Dad was one of the greatest fathers," his daughter said. "He was a good provider."

Mr. Mullins died the day before his 52nd wedding anniversary. The doctors had recently found that he had lung cancer. But his family believes he died from grief. His 94-year-old mother, Florence Dunn, died less than three months ago. She had lived two doors down from her son and made breakfast for him - and any other family member who showed up in her kitchen - every morning.

In addition to his daughter Pamela, survivors include his wife, Shirley Jennings Mullins; another daughter, Paula "Renee" Mullins of Covington; sons, Robert "Snookie" Mullins Jr. , Darryl Mullins and Michael Mullins, all of Covington, Jeffery Mullins of Erlanger and John "Ric" Mullins of Villa Hills; 10 grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

Visitation is 10-11:30 a.m. today followed by the funeral at Ninth Street Baptist Church, Covington. Burial will be at Mary Smith Cemetery, Elsmere.Memorials may be made to Ninth Street Baptist Church, 231 E. Ninth St., Covington, KY 41011.
