Tupelo-Pearlie Rene Miller McCollum, 79, affectionately known as “Puppy”, went home to meet her Heavenly Father on March 1, 2018 at her home in Tupelo after a long, courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Tupelo December 30, 1938 to James Turner & Eula Ray Miller of Tupelo. She was a member of Monument Drive Baptist Church.

Our precious Puppy was a devoted wife, daughter, mother, sister, grandmother and aunt. She retired from J.C. Penny’s at Barnes Crossing Mall. Before being diagnosed “Puppy” was employed by Belk’s. Throughout the years she was greatly loved by all her customers. She was a craftsman in the kitchen and was known for her “Puppy Cake” that will be missed by all of her family.
The family wants to express their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Croot and Dr. Tann and the staff at North Mississippi Hematology & Oncology Center for using all their skills and for the love and care they put forth in the long hard battle during Puppy’s illness. The family wants to also thank Betty Williams for all her loving care to “Puppy”.
She is survived by her husband, Thomas “Buddy” McCollum, Jr. and her daughter Donna McCollum Worley (Hubert) of Jackson, MS. She leaves her grandchildren, Hubert “Bert” Worley III (Brittany) of Memphis, TN and Camille Worley Pittman (Key) of Columbus, MS. She leaves her brother in law, Albert Heidel, nieces Tonya Lipscomb (Drew), Kim Leathers (Brian); their children, Andrew, Miller, Alex, and Ally Ayers Lipscomb and Emma Ray and Turner Leathers all of Tupelo. She was preceded in death by her parents, her son Terry McCollum and her sister Sue Heidel.
