Mabel Majors Ervin, age 86, passed away Thursday October 9, 2014.
A native of Franklin County, she was a long-time member of Tullahoma First United Methodist Church. She worked for Bell South as a telephone operator and retired following 27 years of service. She will be remembered as having the heart of a servant and having never met a stranger. She would do anything for anybody, whether she knew them or not and served as a volunteer for numerous charitable organizations throughout her life. In her spare time she enjoyed her garden, especially the squirrels and cats that came by.
Mrs. Ervin is preceded in death by her husband of more than 60 years, Joseph L. Ervin, a former two-term mayor of Tullahoma. She is also preceded in death by her brothers, Rudolph, Wilson and Charles Majors and a sister, Mary Ruth Majors Parks.
She is survived by her daughter, Patty Ervin Fandrich of Belvidere and her son, Rev. Ken (Cathy) Ervin of the Broadview community; a sister, Wilma Shasteen of Tullahoma; 7 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.
The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service.
