Shirley Mullikin was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She and her husband, Thomas, moved to Oregon in 1970 with their three children, Janet Foster, Karen Cuthbert, and Michael Mullikin.
Music was very important to her. She sang in her high school and church choirs as well as high school productions, in fact that’s how she met her husband in Junior High, through their mutual love of music. They were later married and remained together until Thomas passed away in June of 2022.
She was a branch manager of both Key Bank and Bank of Oregon in Silverton and Salem for many years.
She was an avid quilter for many years and took the time to personalize each one she made. She was also a cross stitch enthusiast framing each one and gifting them to family and friends. She was active in her church and volunteered and served on various committees throughout her life.
She is survived by her daughter, Karen Cuthbert, two grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and one great-great grandson and will be greatly missed. Her Celebration of Life is being planned.
Arrangements entrusted to Weddle Funeral Service.
