Diana Cheryl (Ellington) Mullins, a Lady of Integrity, went to be with Jesus December 13, 2020. She may have been born in the wrong era. Through she was born in 1950, she could have been in the 1920’s. She loved to wear “fancy hats” and enjoyed listening to old records, especially Christmas music. She could spend hours reading a good book. She loved her husband and best friend, Len for the last 51 years. They had many adventures which all started when a young country farm girl took a job with the United States Marine Corps at the headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. She fell in love with this short marine, Leonard (Len) and knew he would be a life-time partner. Diana wanted to make sure he was a lifer, so she had two weddings. The first was before a judge in his chambers in Washington, D. C. and the second time with her minister across the Potomac in Arlington, Virginia. They headed back to California, Len’s home, and were there until it was time to head back to her home-town area to start their family. They were blessed with two sons (Shane and Jonathan) who she loved and cared for. She trained them to be hard working gentlemen. Even though she never finished her college degree, she helped her husband and two sons earn certificates from Ivy Tech, an associate’s degree from L. A. Valley College, a bachelor’s degree from Johnson Bible College, and a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Indiana State University. She worked many years for the Vigo County School Corporation as a secretary. Diana loved to watch Hallmark movies, listen to audio books, and collect hats and angels. She enjoyed time with her family and friends. She felt blessed with two daughters-in-law (Renea and Amber), six grandsons, two granddaughters and her brother, Albert Ellington (Diana) of Kansas, Illinois. This Lady of Integrity will be missed daily by her loving and caring husband and family, but they have the hope of seeing her again in Heaven. There will be a Celebration of Life on Friday, December 18, 2020 at the 12 Points Campus of Maryland Community Church (2000 North 13th Street, Terre Haute).
