Mildred took care of our dad for many years before his death in 2005. I am very grateful for that.

Our P.E.O. Chapter BK loved Mildred as did our church Downtown First United Methodist. My husband Harlan and I will miss lovely, spirited Mildred.

What a lady, in every sense of the word. I looked forward to seeing Mildred in church every Sunday morning.
