Ms. Vanessa Mulkey

A Time to Be Born: Vanessa Dianne Mulkey was born the first child to the late Mr. Eugene Mulkey, Sr. and Mrs. Frankie Williams-Mulkey on June 22, 1973 in Arlington, GA. As a very young and eager child, she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and became a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church. She later moved her membership to Hopewell Baptist Church.

A Time to Live: Vanessa graduated from Calhoun County High School in 1991. She later attended Albany Technical College to further her education. Vanessa was always the most humorous person in every situation. Whether you needed advice, someone to cook, a shoulder to cry on, or if you needed your spirit lifted, she would always have a smile and a funny joke to tell.

A Time to Give Life: On July 14, 1990, Vanessa achieved one of her greatest accomplishments; she became a Mother! It was that day she gave birth to Jevaris Dale (Atlanta, GA), and two years later she gave birth to Andruas Carr on September 14, 1992. Her greatest duties was loving and providing for her two sons. For them she would give the world and her own life. God later sent her Kaniyah “KK,” a child she loved as her own.

A Time to Transition: Vanessa departed her life on July 30, 2018 in Dothan, AL with well wishes from family and friends. She leaves behind two sons, Jevaris and Andruas (Nyasia); her loving mother, Frankie Mae Williams; one brother Eugene Mulkey, Jr, (Tyeisha); two nieces, Leslie Williams and Serenity Eafford, three nephews, Eugene Mulkey III, Khamari Mulkey and Tahj Powell; six aunts, Annie Mae Carr, Martha Shepard (Larry), Andrenia Jackson, Mary Mosley (Joe), Terleasha Williams and Mary Jane George of Arlington, GA.; seven uncles, Larry Williams (Angela), Johnny Williams (Rosa), Robert Williams (Monice), Albert Mulkey (Jurrie), Thomas D. Williams, Danny Williams (Vanestler), and Antonio Williams (Cussandra) of Arlington, GA; a Special Friend, Tameaka Johns, and a host of cousins and close friends that will miss her dearly.

Dear Family, Please accept my condolences. The sting of death is hard to bear. Our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, understands our sorrow. He doesnt want us hurting. In fact, in His Word, the Bible, He gives us encouragement. Its explained in His Word about why death and suffering happen. Additionally, He helps us to understand that this was not meant to be. Acts 24:15, in the Bible, notes that there will be a resurrection! Revelation 21:4 mentions that our Creator promises that death, mourning, and pain will be things of the past. Whats more, 1 Corinthians 15:26 confirms that death will be brought to nothing. Imagine that! A world in which therell be no more death. Can you picture it? I am encouraging you to take heart! Currently, your loved one is now resting. But, in the very near future, that loved one will be raised---resurrected---to the prospect of living here, on earthFOREVER! This is a PROMISE from our Creator, HIMSELF! Isnt that wonderful, good news? I hope these words of encouragement have done for you what I have intended for them to do. And, that is, to provide you with some comfort, peace, and strength.
