Gwenola Nell Mullican 82, went to be with her Lord and Savior on June 6th, 2018.

She was born in Madisonville, TX to parents Olan Marvin Johnson and Blanche Irene Johnson on November 11th, 1935. Gwen graduated with honors from Madisonville High School in 1953. She moved to Houston, TX the summer of 1953 to attend business school. It was in Houston that she met and married the love of her life, her husband David Joe, of nearly 63 years, when he ordered a cup of coffee at Lang's Pharmacy, where she worked at the soda fountain. They were married on July 9th, 1955.

Gwen and David welcomed and raised 3 children, David Joe Jr., Paul Gregory, and Kathleen Ann in Houston.

Once Kathleen was in Jr. High, Gwen went to work at M.D. Anderson Hospital in the nursing payroll department, where many years later she retired.

Gwen was the ultimate wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, and friend. There was nothing she would not do for her family, always putting them first and foremost in her life. She was kind, loving, gracious, funny, and giving, and never wanting in return. She had a beautiful smile and a contagious laugh.

Gwen is preceded in death by her parents Olan Marvin Johnson and Blanche Irene Johnson.

Left to cherish her loving memory are her husband of nearly 63 years, David J. Mullican Sr., her sons David J. Mullican Jr., wife Jennifer, and their daughter Siobhan; Paul G. Mullican, wife Heyam, and their daughters, Mary El-Krab, Renee El-Krab, and Sandy Mullican; and her daughter Kathleen M. Robins and husband Dave; sisters Billy Jean Risinger and Wanda Elaine Hausler; as well as her beloved nieces and nephews and a host of other family and friends.

She will forever live in our hearts and souls.

There will be a memorial service on Saturday 16th, 2018 at 12:30 p.m. at Forest Park East Funeral Home 21620 Gulf Freeway, Webster, TX 77598.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association at www.alz.org or to the Houston Humane Society at houstonhumane.org

ADD A MEMORY

Aunt Gwen was just ten years older than me, so we were quite a bit like siblings. She called me Twirp, and I called her Hildegard, from Hildegard Hamhocker in the old Tumbleweeds cartoon strip. Gwennie was THE CONSUMMATE MOTHER. I clearly remember the days when she and David were dating. There was never any doubt that they were destined for each other.
Her dear memory is locked within our hearts forever.

I have so many wonderful memories of my Aunt Gwen. She was our “fun” aunt, she took us everywhere, vacation bible school, swimming, the movies. Just being with her was fun. As I got older she was there for every important moment of my life. I am going to miss her so much, but I know she’s in a much better place. I pray for peace for Uncle David, Kathleen, Paul and David Jr and to your families.
