Rena Bullock Obituary, Death -On November 20, 2022, at the age of 84, Rena Mae (Tootsie) Barnett Bullock passed away in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by her family. She was in every way a present from above. She was a Christian woman who was devoted to her family, loving, humble, compassionate, and understanding. She also had a strong focus on her faith. She had a heart of gold and was one of the kindest people I’ve ever known. She was devoted to her friends and family, and she had a deep love for God.

Always ready to lend a helping hand to whoever required assistance. She was deeply devoted to the Crooked Creek Baptist Church, where she served in an active capacity for many years. In addition to that, she had spent more than 20 years working in a factory. Tootsie’s parents, Talmage and Jewel Barnett, as well as her siblings Dorothy Davis, Calvin D. (Peanut) Barnett, Cabe E. (Sonny) Barnett, and Mary Nell Jenkins, as well as her granddaughter Vicki Lynette Ward and great-granddaughter Anna KateLynn Powell, all passed away before she did.

Tootsie was also survived by her granddaughter Vicki Lynette Ward and great-granddaughter Anna KateLynn Powell
Tootsie is survived by her husband of 67 years, Emmitt Bullock, daughters Lejeana Roberts and Gajuena Ward, three bonus sons Eddie Cliburn (Anita), Malcolm Cliburn (Kerrie), and Tommy Cliburn, grandchildren Katie Roberts Neal (Anthony), Heather Ward Powell (Zack), Dawn Roberts Goleman (Brad), Dusty Roberts (Kayla), and Kort Roberts, and three great-grandchildren

Tootsie instilled in her children and grandchildren the value of placing God at the center of their affections and served as a role model for us in terms of what it means to love unconditionally.
To Tootsie’s sitters Pam Maye, Carolyn Magee, and Dorothy Buckley, as well as to her hospice nurse Heather Riley, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for the time and effort that each of you devoted to caring for Tootsie in her final days. The last-minute notice has been delivered to Adam Waldon.

Her greatest love, besides God, was her family, whom she was able to call husband, mother, and mawmaw. She was the matriarch of the family. Never to be forgotten, and never far from our thoughts.
On the Friday, November 25th, 2022, the Crooked Creek Baptist Church will hold a service beginning at 9:30 AM for the family, followed by visitation from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, and the funeral service will begin at 1:00 PM. Benson Road will serve as the location for the funeral services that will be held at the family cemetery.
