We are sad to announce the passing of Sara Diane Hulin of Mineral Wells, TX. Sara passed away at the age of 62 on May 21, 2023. She was born the youngest of 8 children, to Alfred Hulin, Sr and Alice Marie Hulin, on October 17, 1960.

Sara accepted Christ at a young age, she was baptized and remained a member of the Bethel Baptist Church until her passing. She graduated from Mineral Wells High School in May 1978 where she played softball and ran track.

Sara and Sal would eventually move back to Mineral Wells to help care for her father until his death.
