Janille Mamie Roberts Mullins, age 83, was born in Price, Carbon County, Utah on July 28, 1938, to Carlyle Reed Roberts and Anna Janet Massa. She has a twin sister, Janette Rhoda Judd, and a younger brother, Reed Roberts.

Janille is preceded in death by her husband, James Mullins, and her special fur baby, Mindy.

Janille has twelve grandchildren and seven great grandchildren with on on the way.

Janille is a very creative spirit enjoying painting, sewing, and crocheting. She donated countless hours of time to the humanitarian group for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved to travel and go to the movies. In her youth, she enjoyed dating and dancing. She was her own handyman.

She was lovingly cared for by true angels from Angel Home Healthcare including Jim, Patti, Frank, David and many others plus tender nurses from Hospice at Home of Arizona. Words cannot express how grateful our family is for all their love and kindness.

There will be a viewing at Bunker’s Garden Chapel on Friday, July 22, from 6-8pm with a family graveside service the next morning.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to a charity of your choice.

    What a special sister! I was Janille’s visiting teacher a few years ago and enjoyed going into her home and experiencing the sweet spirit there. She loved people, her furry friends, her family, and making humanitarian quilts as well as other needed items.. She loved sharing her love of the Gospel, which radiated from her sparkling eyes and lovely smile. Thank you, Janille, for being a wonderful example and friend! Junene

  • Janille was one of the first Sisters in our ward and since she was in the RS Presidency, who came and welcomed me in my home 21 years ago. She was such a sweet and cheerful Sister and I loved being a friend and I have many fond memories of our friendship. May your family be blessed until you meet again. Eva
