On Friday, January 31, 2020 at 3:36pm while under hospice care, Pauline Mullins passed away at home surrounded by family at the age of 88 after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s Disease. Pauline was born on September 24, 1931 in New Brunswick, NJ to Russian immigrants Sophie and Harry Okulich. Pauline graduated from New Brunswick High School in 1948. On September 19, 1953, she married Gus Mullins. After relocating to the New Orleans area in 1972 they raised three sons, Doug, Eric and Mark. A devoted Christian, Pauline was an active member of Faith Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Metairie, Louisiana. Pauline grew up with her parents in New Brunswick and began a career in banking in the 1950’s at the People’s National Bank in New Brunswick before becoming a full time homemaker in 1960. Pauline was an intelligent woman who strived for perfection in all endeavors. Her life’s mission was revealed in her most important role as a dedicated mother of her three boys and supporting wife of her hard working husband.

I grew up in the house behind the Mullins' and played trumpet with Mark on the trombone. We played at his house, we played at my house. I remember beloved beagles(?) and Mr. Gus tinkering on a project. Mrs. Mullins caring for everyone, offering snacks and enduring the music at all hours of the day.

My heartfelt condolences to the entire Mullins family. Mrs. Pauline was a remarkable person and a Godly example of wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. I will never forget her and will love and honor her for ever. She welcomed me and her first grandaughter, Stephanie Ann Mullins Wingo, into her family. I will always cherish our relationship and memories. May she rest in peace with Christ and His unending Love.
