Mrs. Mauriene F. Young Sullivan, age 72, a resident of Horatio, Arkansas, died Monday, February 12, 2018, in Texarkana, Texas.
Mauriene was born March 29, 1945, in De Queen, Arkansas. She was a homemaker. Not a day went by that she wasn’t trying to help someone; she had the biggest heart and the best iced tea around. Mauriene had a smile that would light up a room and always a kind word and hug to go along with it. She never met a stranger and welcomed everyone into her home as if they were her own. She devoted her life to her kids and grandkids and will be missed by many.
Mrs. Sullivan was preceded in death by her husband, Arnold Dale Sullivan; her parents, Carl Young and LaVerne Cornelius Roan; a sister, Fredia Leathers; and a son, Todd Smith.
She is survived by three daughters and their spouses, Schelly and Rick Paul of North Little Rock, Arkansas, Debi and Roger Rios of Texarkana, Arkansas, and Amanda and Heath Culp of De Queen; five grandchildren, Jonathan and Darnell Paul, Harley and Hailey Culp, and Addison Rios; two brothers, Jerry Young of Dardanelle, Arkansas, and Danny Young of Texarkana, and a number of nieces and nephews.
Memorial services for Mrs. Sullivan will be held at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, February 17, 2018, in the Wilkerson Funeral Home Chapel with Jimmy Roden officiating.
