Malinda Mahan

January 6, 1957 — December 16, 2020

Malinda Mahan, 63, passed away December 16, 2020, in Abilene, Tx.

Her life’s passion was serving humanity as a Nurse. Her career encompassed Labor and Delivery, ICU, and The Emergency Department, but her caring touch and generous heart extended to all those around her. She was hysterically funny with a sharp, sarcastic wit. She was an infinite source of wisdom, resilience, a patron for rescued animals, an avid reader, a trusted confidant and a collector of beautiful things. She would describe herself only as a Mom.

She is preceded in death by her Father, Bobby Mahan; her sister, Robin Mahan; and bonus dad, James Almighty Brammer.

Malinda is survived by her mother, Viola Brammer; her children, Carie McNeil, Jamie and husband Casey Self, Scott McNeil and wife Cheyenne; Taylar McNeil and fiancé Aaron Bryant; her grandchildren, Victoria Stewart, Caleb Franklin, Jackson and Hayden McNeil; her brother John Mahan, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
