Mamie Frances McCullars

Mamie Frances (Roberts) McCullars was called home on Friday, May 2, 2014.

She was born on December 4, 1921 in Youngstown, Ohio to the late Richard and Roxie Roberts. She moved to Akron as a small child attending Akron Public Schools and graduated from South High School. She met and married Lonney McCullars Sr. and from this union four children were born. They were married for 43 years.

Mom was a strong willed, God-fearing woman, and a loving and devoted mother. She had a great love for children. For several years she opened her home and played an instrumental role in raising her great nieces and nephew, as well as caring for her grandchildren.

She will be best remembered by her strong personality and inspiring words, always instilling the importance of education, honesty, and hard work. Mom''s laugh and sense of humor was always contagious, yet when she spoke we knew she meant what she said and always said what she meant. She also enjoyed mail-order shopping, The Arts, gardening, and cookouts with her family and friends.

Mom was preceded in death by her parents, Richard Sr. and Roxie Roberts; brothers, Winston Roberts, Eddie Roberts, Richard Roberts Jr., and Leon Roberts; sisters, Rosa Bell Cody and Mary Helen Davis.
