Donald “Keith” Mullet
February 10, 1933 – March 30, 2018
After enjoying the inspiring “Message of Easter” Keith Mullet, 85, went to sleep and woke up in Glory on Good Friday morning.
One of nine children, Keith was born and raised in Eastern Montana, an area he loved for the rest of his life.
While attending Eastern Mennonite College he met Rosa Mae Kurtz to whom he was married for almost sixty years.
Keith’s parents had been western homesteaders. In 1965 he moved his family to the new community of Grassy Ridge in primitive Hyde County where there were only twelve homes on dirt roads (now about 45 on paved roads, as well as five major business). One house and two trailers occupied a wheel track dirt field lane stretch of Main Stem Road that now paved, contains three businesses, the Mennonite Church and School, and seven homes.
Keith taught school in Roper, was a Social Worker in Swan Quarter, and for more than thirty years before his forced retirement due to a health crisis in March 2014, worked for Pantego Overhead Doors.
He is survived by his sister Eunice Field of Eureka, Montana; sister in law Betty Deputy (Byard) of Harrisonburg, Virginia, his daughter Elizabeth of Pantego; son Donald (Rhoda) of Sparta, Wisconsin; son Marvin (Dorothy) of Hayward, Wisconsin; eleven grandchildren (two spouses); and two great grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his wife Rosa, infant daughter Esther, and other relatives.
A viewing is planned from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday evening at Hope Mennonite Church, 25 Main Stem Road (SR 1339) and a funeral service at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, April 7, 2018
The family wishes to thank all those that have offered such kind condolences, prayers and acts of service.
Arrangements are by Bryan Funeral Service, Swan Quarter.
