Julia Anne Mullins

December 11, 1947 — October 1, 2023

Julia Anne Kurek Mullins, 75 of Cleveland, TN, surrounded by family, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, October 1st, 2023.

Julia was born in Baltimore, MD, and attended St. Margaret’s Catholic School and Bel Air High School. She studied nursing at Harford Memorial Hospital and earned her Licensed Practical Nursing degree. Julia loved her nursing career and retired after 44 years of service. She was also a dedicated pastor’s wife for 30 years and taught Children’s Church and Sunday School. Julia and her husband attended Peerless Road Church in Cleveland after he retired. She enjoyed quilting and shopping and was an avid reader. Julia was famous for baking her banana nut cakes and was known for her generous spirit and kind heart. Her daughter says, she wouldn’t just give you the shirt off her back, but she would buy you a brand new one, give you a handmade quilt, and bake you a cake too. Julia (Mom and Mommom) you are dearly loved and greatly missed.

Julia was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Erma Kurek; brothers: William Kurek, Phillip Kurek, Thomas Kurek, and Joseph Kurek.
