Ernest Mullet, age 92, peacefully passed away in Great Falls on Monday, February 6, at 3:38 p.m. His wife Ruth and members of the family were present for the loving send off on the heavenly journey dad anticipated with great faith and confidence.
His earthly sojourn began on a cold and blustery day on the windswept plains of Eastern Montana’s Morgan Table. On January 10, 1925 a pair of tiny lungs, belonging to the seventh and eighth children of an Amish couple, David and Maude Mullet, protested their rude entrance into the world on such a day. Within two weeks of her arrival, Little Esther, Ernest’s twin, succumbed to pneumonia, but Ernest grew up to be the husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather we have come to know and love.
Ernest was preceded in death by his parents; and eight siblings, Hank, Florence, Tim, Roy, Lloyd, Bill, Esther (twin), and Mary Mullet Nissley.
All are invited to share in a celebration of his life and legacy to our family. Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Silha Funeral Home in Glendive on Friday February 10, 2017. Interment will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the Red Top Mennonite Church Cemetery. The memorial service of celebration and singing will be held at the church following the interment and is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. The Red Top Mennonite Church is located five miles East of Bloomfield. All are welcome.
