Linda Marie Mullinax, 73, of Carmel passed away March 2. She was born in Mt. Vernon, Ill., on Aug. 5, 1942, to Olin and Earlene Tolley. Linda grew up in Mt. Vernon, married Charles Mullinax and then moved to Granite City, Ill., to work as a beautician and start her family. They transferred with Ford Motor to Chicago in 1972 and retired to Indianapolis in 1998. She was a member at St. Peters United Church of Christ in Carmel.
Linda loved her family, treasured dining out with those close to her and kept her faith even when health challenges seemed overwhelming. Eventually, multiple injuries and a heart condition conspired to take her. She passed in her sleep at her home with her husband by her side. Donations in Linda’s memory may be sent to Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon.
She is survived by her husband, Charles Mullinax; sons, Charles Dean and Brian (Laura) Mullinax; grandchildren, Douglas Mullinax, Madison Lane, Nicole Katt; great-grandchildren, Alexander Katt, Olivia Katt, Karma Lane and Hattie Wilson; and brothers, Marvin Richardson and Jerry Tolley.
