Pauline Mullins

            Pauline Thomason Mullins of Jasper, 88, passed away on April 20, 2022 at Piedmont Mountainside Hospital with family by her side.

            Born and raised in the Hinton community on either August 21 or 22, 1933 (no one was ever entirely sure which it was), Pauline was a lifelong resident of Pickens County. Nearly 50 of her 88 years were spent in her little home on Old Cove Road, where she taught painting and ceramics in her basement and cared for those she loved most. She had many jobs over the years, working for Wayne and Joyce Anderson, Pickens Footwear, HD Lee, and then with her cousin Joan Arp at Jasper City Florist. She thoroughly enjoyed plants and flowers and spent long hours in her gardens. It was often joked that she could put a stick in dirt and grow a tree.

            In her semi-retired age, she volunteered much of her time at the Jasper Community Thrift Store. Helping others was second nature for her. Whether babysitting, donating, cooking, or sharing things from her garden, Pauline always gave selflessly and sincerely. A friend once remarked about her lovely earrings, to which she promptly took them out of her ears and handed them over as a gift. She had very adamant opinions about mostly everything, whether she shared them aloud or not, but she always valued family and friendships above all else.

            Pauline was preceded in death by her husband, Glanton “Bud” Mullins; her parents, Bill and Pearl Thomason; her brothers, James Thomason and Sam Thomason; her sisters, May Thomason and Lorene Jordan; and her nieces and nephews, Trina Boling, Diane Cornett, Gary Thomason, and Keith Thomason.

            Pauline leaves behind a host of close family, including her children and their spouses, Patsy Duckett, Ann and Jeff Dobson, Richard and Sally Young, and Carl and Lisa Duckett; her grandchildren, Leslie Thomas, Debbie Young, Karla Weaver, and Zach Dobson; her great-grandchildren, Tyler Weaver, Alyssa Holaway, Katlyn Moralis, Kellie Thomas, and Riley Dobson; and her great-great-granddaughter, Ellie Grace Holaway.

            Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. on April 22, 2022 at County Line Baptist Church where Pauline was a lifetime member. The Reverend Jess Posey officiated the service, and interment followed in the County Line Baptist Church cemetery.

            Flowers were welcome, but the family would prefer donations to be made in Pauline’s name to the Cemetery Fund at County Line Baptist Church.

            Arrangements are entrusted to the staff at Roper Funeral Home and Crematory.

Carolyn Swann

            Carolyn Sue Swann, 78 years young of Marietta, Ga passed away on April 22, 2022 at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital after a long battle with cancer and respiratory problems.

            Carolyn was born on May 6, 1943 to Delbert Cain and Frankie (Cain) McPherson in Jasper, Ga. She was married to her surviving husband Bruce Swann on August 5, 1989. She is also survived by her two children from a previous marriage Billy Parker, with wife Knoxie of Woodstock, Ga and Delene Potts, with husband Bob of Jasper, Ga, her step-children Tyson Swann, with wife Beth of Canton, Ga and Susan Swann of Cornelia, Ga, grand and step-grand children Sloan Parker of Woodstock, Ga, Christopher Hogan of Marietta, Ga, Tyler and Stephanie Swann of  Woodstock, Ga, Tatum and Jonathan Cavender of Canton, Ga, Morgan and Seth Webb of Demorest, Ga, Erin and Harley Turner of Demorest, Ga, and Oaklee Jackson of Cornelia, Ga, and step great-grand children Brettley Cavender and Dalton Webb, along with many other nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her father Delbert Cain, mother Frankie McPherson, brother Homer Cain, and sisters Wanda Jordan and Wylene Padgett.

    Carolyn spent most of her younger years in Jasper, Ga and later moved to Woodstock, Ga, but finally settled in Marietta, Ga with her husband Bruce Swann. She began working at the Atlanta Journal Constitution as a paper carrier and retired 25 years later in 2007 as a Circulation Manager. Her relentless love and caring for her family was first and foremost during her life. She was a giving soul to anyone in need, as well as, having a passion for wild life and flowers. She was always placing other’s needs, wants, and desires ahead of herself. She was a small woman with a big heart. If you met her and got to know her, you loved her unconditionally. She battled serious medical issues for much of her later years and won the battle in most cases, until the Lord gave her wings and took her home.  

            Visitation for Carolyn will be at Medford-Peden Funeral Home at 1408 Canton Road in Marietta, Ga 30066 on Friday, April 29 between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2022 at 2 p.m., with visitation at 11 a.m. until services start in the Medford-Peden Funeral Home Chapel. Follow-on burial services will be at Kennesaw Memorial Park, Marietta, Ga.
