Willie Mozelle Mulligan

September 21, 1933 ~ July 2, 2022 (age 88)


Willie Mozelle Mulligan (Mimi) was born in Glynwood, Georgia, the daughter of the late Grover Cleveland Rhodes and Annie Mozelle Harrison. She was preceded in death by her husband, William Curtis Mulligan. Better known as MiMi, she spent years as a Navy wife traveling from coast to coast.  She was best known for baking cakes and cookies for friends and neighbors. She was beloved by all the grade school classmates of her grandchildren due to her habit of dropping off piles of individually wrapped homemade cookies at Oriole Beach Elementary School.

She was preceded in death by six of her siblings: Thomas Rhodes (Jacksonville, FL); Leroy Rhodes Meadow (Utah); Addie Lawrence Owens (Brunswick, GA); Beatrice Carmichael (Waycross, GA); Ann Mathis (Lakeland, FL) Lucille Glynn (Mobile, AL). Russell Rhodes of Tallahassee, FL is her sole surviving sibling.

She is also survived by her daughter, Linda Ellis (Tommy); son, John Craven (Noie) and Paul Mulligan (Martha), three grandsons, Adam Ellis (Liz), Lee Ellis (Olivia), Kyle Craven, and a great-granddaughter, Iyla Endacott Ellis. 

She lived a full life, she was loved by many, and she will be deeply missed.

A private burial will take place at Barrancas National Cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the NICU Unit at Sacred Heart Hospital Pensacola in honor of MiMi Mulligan and Iyla Endacott Ellis.
