She and Jimmy were married in the parsonage of the church, and during the late 1950s, Dolores served as the first church secretary. She would remain a faithful servant of Christ at First Baptist throughout her life, welcoming new babies through Cradle Roll, teaching children’s Sunday School, serving on numerous committees, and supporting missions through Women’s Missionary Union. Dolores will also be remembered for her many creative interests, especially for her sewing, reproduction dolls, gardening, quilts, paintings, and caramel cakes. Above all, her faithfulness to Christ, family, and friends will live on in the lives she touched. Her grandsons will serve as pallbearers.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to First Baptist Church of Pontotoc, C/O Missions, 31 Washington Street, Pontotoc, MS 38863.

I have so many fond memories of Mama Munn, as I often referred to her. So many of my growing up days were spent at the Munn home. She truly was a gifted lady in so many areas. From painting to sewing to cooking and baking, she was a master at it. What a wonderful legacy she leaves in her girls! I was blessed to have her as a second mother! Love you all so much!

Such happy memories of times shared at the Munn's home! Mr. and Mrs. Munn always made you welcome and shared their love. And, of course, the candy warehouse was our own Willy Wonka Factory, but nothing surpassed Mrs. Munn's Caramel Cake! I treasure the many joyous times we shared and am blessed to have had this precious lady in my life! My love to all!

My parents, J. C. And Margaret Mitchell, were moving to Columbus from Pontotoc. My husband and I were in the process of getting moved to Greenville and we had a brand new baby. I was staying with mother and daddy for a couple of weeks. On the day my parents moved Delores took me in for the day with a 2 year old and a 2 week old. All day long we were at her house. She played with the 2 year old, She held the new baby and let me take a nap. I will never forget that kindness shown to me.
