KNOXVILLE — Elizabeth Mull, widow and partner of East Tennessee blind gospel music icon the Rev. J. Bazzell Mull, died this morning.

She was best known as "Mizz Mull" or "Lady Mull" to listeners of the "Mull Singing Convention" broadcasts.

During broadcasts the Rev. Mull would often say to her, "Ain't that right, Mizz Mull?" His query to her became a regional catchphrase.
