She was a graduate of Portland High School, owner and operator of the Red Lantern, operator of Past Time Restaurant, the owner of Gwin & Son’s Logging for many years, and was a member of the Hamburg Church of Christ.

Mrs. Mormon was a hard-working woman and opened her home and heart to everyone. She had a passion for cooking and if you stopped by her home, you had to eat or her feelings were hurt. She was a loving mother to all. Proverbs 31:10-31 describes her well.

She is survived by five sons, James Gwin and wife, Sandra, of Montrose, Richard Gwin and wife, Sue of Hamburg, Bobby Joe Gwin and wife, Nancy of Hamburg, Don Gwin of Hamburg and Carl John Gwin and wife, Dayla of Crossett; two daughters, Pat Thompson and husband, Gene, of Lake Village and Paula Ladd and husband, Keith, of Hamburg; four brothers, Harry Joe Tumlison and wife, Bonnie, of Crossett, John William “Bill” Tumlison and wife, Ressie, of Kingwood, Texas, Jerry Tumlison and wife, Tammy, of Van Buren and Noel “Buck” Tumlison and wife, Kathy, of Flora, Mississippi; three sisters, Linda Gilliam and husband, Allen, of Portland, Nancy Cowan and husband, Lance, of Nashville, Tennessee and Pam Roberson and husband, Doyle, of Bastrop, Louisiana; a step-daughter, Marilynn Wood of Texas; 14 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.

Private graveside services will be held on Friday, March 27, at 11 a.m. at Pinewood Memorial Park with Bro. Robin Allen and Bro. Joe Sponaugle officiating.

Honorary pallbearers are her grandsons.
