Sandra Gail Mullins Nolen, age 73, of Elkhart, joined the angels in Heaven on Tuesday, the 20th day of April 2021. Sandra was born in Brownwood, Texas, on the 28th day of October 1947, to parents Richard Leon Mullins and Betty Jean Grimes Mullins.
Sandra was a kind and talented lady with a heart of gold. She loved her family dearly and basked in the moments of being surrounded by her grandchildren. Cooking large meals was her way of showing affection and spoiling her family. Sandra started every day with a cup of coffee and two pieces of toast, lightly buttered. She was immensely talented when it came to arts and crafts and enjoyed crocheting and sewing. She had an eye for creating beautiful oil paintings and the voice of an angel when she sang. Sandra was a member of Evangelistic Temple and always found time to read the Bible.
Sandra is preceded in death by her parents Richard and Betty Mullins; husband, Jerry Richard Nolen; son, Tony Nolen; and grandchild, Stephen Nolen.
Sandra is survived by her daughters Tammy Smith of Houston and Stephanie Nolen of Houston; son, Toby Nolen and wife Amber of Elkhart; sister, Candy Baker and husband Kenny of Huffman; and grandchildren, Jerred Nolen, Wesley Nolen, Dalton Nolen, Aaron Nolen, Natalie Villalobos, Alyssa Villalobos, Danielle Almaraz, Priscilla Cruz, Jerry Richard Nolen, Jessica Nolen, Brittney Luff, Kristina Humphrey, Taylor Nolen, Tasha Smith, and Shannon Smith. Sandra is also survived by thirty great-grandchildren and a niece, Nicole Chavez.
