Bessie Mullins, 79, of Noblesville, passed away on Wed., Feb. 2, 2022 at Riverview Health in Noblesville.

She was born on October 4, 1942.

Mrs. Mullins loved life and her family was her whole world. Between her kids, her grandchildren, and her great grandkids she has had a hand in helping raise and shape 3 generations for the better of the world. No matter the time or the day she was there for her family to help in any way she could.

Mrs. Mullins was a member of the LightHouse Fellowship and was a woman of God. She was always ready to add another place at the table for anyone who might need it. And if you haven’t had her biscuits and gravy, Boy did you miss out!

Mrs. Mullins was preceded in death by her husband, who was her soulmate and love of her life, Lacy Mullins. Her early life was filled with hardships and rough times. Lacy came along like a knight in shining armor and spent his life filling hers with sunshine and happiness. Together they had 4 kids and without thought they helped raise the Branham kids like they were their own.

She was also preceded in death by her daughter, Terri Mullins; brother, Bill Pritt; and sisters, Gale Whitt and Mary McCallister; and Branham kids Andy “Peanut” Branham and Georgette Hewitt.
