Mrs. McMullin was a beautiful classy woman, that was very passionate about her husband and her boys. I have fond memories of the McMullin family from First Baptist of Melbourne. Peace and prayers for your family.

Mrs McMullin raised a couple of awesome sons and had the biggest smile every time we came to visit. She loved people and really loved all the kids that stopped by. Never ever did you see her without that smile.
