Obituary MULLINS, NORCIE:
It is with a sad heart I will try to write the obituary of my sister: Norcie
Mullins, with the request of her daughter Mary Lou Vanover. Norcie was born May
25, 1914, deceased September 4, 1979. She was 65 years, 3 months and 8 days old.
She was the daughter of William and Flossie Amburgey, who have preceded her in
Norcie was married to Sam Mullins on November 24, 1934. To this
union were born 2 children. Ernest Mullins and Mary Lou Vanover both of Amburgey,
Kentucky, also 5 grandchildren. Norcie has 4 brothers and 5 sisters, 2 brothers,
and 2 sisters also preceded him in death.
Norcie joined the "House of Prayer Church" of the old regular
Baptist, on June 3, 1973. She was a faithful member as long as she could get to
Dayton. Later she took her letter to the "Little Dove Church" of the same faith
and order at Sassafras, Kentucky for convenience. There she was a faithful
member. She loved the church and all the people. Many times she went to church
and her not able to go.
She had a bad heart, and smothered so bad. She kept telling us
she wasn't going to live long. She would tell us she wanted to be with mom and
dad in heaven. Early one morning on the 4th of September the death angel slipped
in from heaven and took her while she was asleep. Her husband woke and found her
We feel with all our hearts Norcie is resting in peace around
Gods throne, with her loved ones that has already gone on. I feel that her
husband and daughter is ready to meet her. So I want to say to her son: "Ernest,
if you want to see mama again you must fall out of sin and get ready to meet
her." She leaves to mourn her loss: her husband, 2 children, 5 grandchildren, 2
brothers, 3 sisters, and a lot of friends.
I know her seat is empty at church, just as it is at home.
Someone else can fill her seat at church, but no one can fill it at home. That
is a vacant place that no one can fill. We believe our loss on earth is heavens
gain. We hope to meet you some day sis so sleep on you are at rest where there
is no more suffering or smothering, or no more hospitals. God has cured you of
your sickness and heart aches. Written by her sister, MELBA GIVENS
Mother is gone but not forgotten,
She went away and left us sand,
All I have to keep me company,
Is my family and my dad.
There was a vacant place in heaven,
God need a flower to fill its place.
He picked you Mother for the purpose,
When he saw your pretty face.
Oh Mother, how we miss you,
No one can ever take your place.
Daddy's heart is so broken,
The lines are showing in his face.
We missing you Mother since you are gone,
We can't go home and see you there.
It is so lonely at the table,
For there sets your vacant chair.
Mom I know that you are happy,
On a hill you lay so cold.
You are happy up in heaven,
While you walk the streets of gold.
At the church you're not with me,
Someone else has took your seat.
I always think about you Mother,
When I kneel to wash their feet.
Sleep on Mother God is with you,
You never have to walk alone.
God will keep his arms around you,
Some day Mom I'm coming home.
