Lucy Thompson Mullis

April 27, 1934 — October 5, 2020

Lucy Thompson Mullis passed from this life on the morning of October 5, 2020, at her home in Cochran at the age of 86. Preceding Lucy in death were her parents, Oscar Thompson and Annie Boutwell Thompson as well as several siblings and nephews.

Born on April 27, 1934, in Empire, Georgia, Lucy made her home in the Middle Georgia area. In her younger years, she was a floor manager at a shirt factory before becoming a hairdresser. Lucy owned her own business, Lucy’s Beauty Shop, in Hawkinsville where she cut, styled, permed, and dyed hair for over 30 years. Lucy was a member of Lake Blackshear Baptist Church where her husband, Curtis, is a Deacon.

Lucy had a creative mind, always finding new crafts and projects to work on. Her favorite pastimes included remodeling her home and spending time in her garden. She loved lake living and taught many people on Lake Blackshear how to fish and ski. Boating was a passion of Lucy’s and she treasured her time on or near the water.

Survivors include her husband of 70 years Curtis Mullis; daughter Gail Hopkins (Mike) of Warner Robins; sister, Betty Evans; grandchildren, Candace, Kyle, and Lauren Hopkins; great granddaughter Imogen; a great grandchild on the way; and three nephews.
