Mullis and wife Phuong of Decatur; nine grandchildren; three great grandchildren; and two more great grandchildren yet unborn.
She was active in Bible Baptist Church and its mission work, helping those in need and providing a variety of support activities. Miss Johnnie was able to find anything anyone needed, from a replacement bolt to a toy for a child to reading glasses to a spare coat for someone cold, in the cavernous trunk of her car. She called providing for others her “work.” She loved gardening and flowers and taught this love to her grandchildren. As in Proverbs 31:28, “her children arise and call her blessed…”
