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.
