NEWPORT-Funeral services for Sally Burnett, a leader in local musical circles for several decades, will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, July 27, at First United Methodist Church.

Mims died Wednesday following a short illness and just days before her 83rd birthday.

Born July 29, 1930, she was one of two children of William Earnest Mims and Anna Roe Driskill Mims.

She attended local schools, graduating from Cocke County High School as salutatorian in 1948.

As a child, she began the study of music under the late Mrs. P. T. Bauman. In recent months, she recalled her days as a high school student when she would arrive at the school two hours before classes began in order to practice for competitions.
