Obit of Bernadine "Bernie" (Ludwig) Mullens
CHATSWORTH — Bernadine “Bernie” Mullens, 93, of Chatsworth, went to be with her Heavenly Father at 7:40 p.m. Wednesday (July 27, 2016) at Gibson Area Hospital, Gibson City.
She was born Nov. 28, 1922, in Bloomington, a daughter of Bert and Sarah Jane (McNeely) Ludwig. Bernie married Milton Mullens on Sept. 13, 1945. They had three daughters, Judy, Atlanta, Ga.; Jane (Cary “Snooky”) Dehm, Chatsworth; and Joyce (Brian) Sheppard, Chatsworth. She had seven grandchildren and eight greatgrandchildren. Bernie was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years; one grandchild, Eric Todd Dehm; her parents; one sister; and two brothers.
She was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and dearly loved her church family. Bernie had numerous jobs in her life, the last being a teller at Citizens Bank of Chatsworth. Her family was her greatest joy. She loved being with them and was always there when they needed her. She loved watching things grow and had a garden up until the last year and loved to share what she grew with her family and friends. Bernie’s favorite thing to do was to go out to breakfast after church on Sunday. She developed a real sweet tooth the past couple of years and was always ready to get Dairy Queen. She loved bread pudding and coconut cream pie. Bernie will be greatly missed by her family and friends, especially her dear friend, Veva Lang. She dedicated her life to the Lord and her family. We are sad but also happy that she is with our dad and all the loved ones who passed before her. Bernie is forever rejoicing with her Heavenly Father.
Her service will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at Calvary Baptist Church, Chatsworth. Visitation will be one hour prior to service at the church. Burial will follow at Chatsworth Cemetery. A luncheon at the church will follow the graveside service. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Calvary Baptist Church, Chatsworth Fire Department, or Chatsworth Township Library. Calvert & Martin Funeral Home, Chatsworth, is handling arrangements for the family. This obituary may be viewed and condolences sent to the family at calvertmemorial.com.
