Phyllis ‘Grandma Moon’ Mullins


Phyllis “Grandma Moon” Mullins was born on April 18, 1942 in Canon City, Colorado to Loy and Olive Adams, and grew up on a ranch near Coaldale, Colorado. She graduated from Cotopaxi High School in 1960 and immediately married the love of her life, Gerald ”Moon” Mullins. Over the years, they lived in Bailey, Gunnison, and Monte Vista, Colorado where they worked, raised their three kids, owned and operated a fabric store as well as Moon’s Pro Shop. In retirement, they traveled across the country, wintered for years in Arizona to play golf, and went to Ireland. Eventually, they settled in Colorado City, Colorado.

She loved playing golf with friends and family, playing bridge, and going to the mountains. Mostly, though, she loved her family. They put a million miles on their car traveling to all of their grand kid’s sporting events. She loved watching all of them compete, and rarely missed one of their competitions. Surrounded by all of her loving family Grandma Moon went to heaven on November 4, 2019. She is survived by her husband Gerald “Moon” Mullins, her children, Kana (Greg) Condon, Katrina (Albert) Francis and Monte (Stacie) Mullins as well as her grandchildren Chase (Jill), Kyle (Tammi) and Heath (Katy) Francis, Luke and Arika Condon, Taelor (Brandon) Sanchez, Clay and Faithe.  Grandma Moon is also survived by three great-grandchildren, Jaycee, Jessa, and Brady Francis.  Also surviving her are her siblings,  Gene (Doris) Adams, Richard (Toodlem) Adams, Marilyn Yost, Sharon (Conrad) Gulliford, and Elva (Jim) Hannahan in addition to many much-loved nieces and nephews.  A Celebration of her Life will be held at 11 am on Friday, Nov 8th at the Hollydot Golf Course, 55 N. Parkway Drive in Colorado City. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Friends of Hollydot at P.O.
