Biografía

Mildred E. Hinton was a natural leader whose winning presence allowed her to take control of various situations with ease. Equipped with a clear and calculating focus, she possessed a tough-minded, “take charge” attitude. She had the ability to make even routine situations seem exciting, and she was at ease with the role of playing problem solver. Mildred always sought out the scene of where the action was. Sociable, analytical and pleasant, Mildred was an individual who enjoyed life’s challenges.

Mildred was born on July 30, 1929 at home in Richmond, Virginia. Her parents were George and Alice Epps. Mildred was raised in Richmond, Virginia. Always able to express herself well, Mildred possessed strong interpersonal skills. She was optimistic in her outlook on life and was able at all times to be open and direct in her communication. Armed with a great wit, Mildred was raised to be accepting of others and to implement a strong personal work ethic.

Blessed with a balanced attitude, Mildred was able to relate well with others. Her occasional role as family mediator gave her the opportunity to ease tense situations when they occurred. Mildred was raised with three siblings. She had two older sisters, Dorothy and Elinor and one younger brother George. Mildred had a strong desire to be treated fairly and would readily offer others the same fairness in return.

As a young child, Mildred showed her creative ability in many ways. She was outgoing and animated. Mildred enjoyed new activities and pursued a variety of interests. She was a member of the school band. In her spare time she liked cooking, playing in the band, and comic books. Mildred's memorable achievements included.

Known to others as a focused, logical, open-minded and somewhat driven individual, Mildred was able to utilize these qualities to succeed in high school. Her curious nature was spurred by her ability to maximize her personal learning style through employing a hands-on approach. She was good with facts and had an excellent memory, like a steel trap --- better than an elephant! She graduated from Armstrong High School in 1946, early at the age of 17. She enjoyed some courses more than others, having favorite classes and teachers.

When the goal of college was in sight, it became important to Mildred. Again, her direct, “down to earth” approach served her well. She was able to absorb complex concepts and had an acute sense of how things worked. She attended college, studying History, European Art and Sociology.

Friends and acquaintances found Mildred an easy woman to get to know, and those close to her would often praise her open, practical style of communication and relaxed approach to life in general. Mildred was uncomplicated and straightforward in her relationships, which allowed her to accept people for what they were. While growing up, some of her best friends were Muriel Burrell. Later in life, she became friends with Hazel Forrest.

On December 18, 1965 Mildred exchanged wedding vows with James Sherman Hinton, Jr. at the home of Rev. Emmanuel Kent of Richmond, Virginia. Mildred was attentive to James' feelings, and she charmed James and others with her gift for being able to give freely and generously. A good listener with an engaging personality, Mildred was able to bring pleasure and unexpected humor to the relationship.

Very much like a kid herself, Mildred identified with the inquisitive and creative side of her children’s personalities. She was able to direct her energy and spontaneity towards helping her children acquire added common sense skills. Mildred and James were blessed with two children, Deborah and Karen. They were also blessed with two grandchildren, Christina and Ronald and great grandchildren Alexander and Sophia.

Mildred was a flexible worker who was able to draw the best from others around her. A persuasive individual who was quick to make necessary decisions, Mildred’s strengths included being able to think on her feet. She could be a leader who sought impact for her decisions. Gifted with an incredible ability to read body language, Mildred was able to positively manipulate situations and motivate others in order to get a task completed. She was a good negotiator who enjoyed new challenges. Mildred could multi-task, and she was endowed with entrepreneurial spirit, allowing her to think beyond standard norms when it came to resolving issues in her work environment. Her primary occupation was a photo-printer. She was employed for ten years with an architectural firm.

Mildred enjoyed her leisure time by taking part in various hobbies. She had something of an artistic flair in many of the things that she did. She put this creativity toward all of her pastimes. Her favorite pursuit was reading mystery novels. She was content to enjoy her hobbies alone but was also willing to share her interests with others.

Because she liked to take risks, Mildred was a perfect match for athletics and exercise. She was enthusiastic and confident about these activities. Mildred was also something of a sports fan and enjoyed watching her favorite events whenever she got the opportunity. Tops on her list were football, baseball and basketball.

Mildred was a generous woman who prized that same quality in others. So it’s little wonder that she was so active and giving in her community. Politically, Mildred was a democrat.

Mildred held close traditional values and as a result, faith was important to her. She was a member of Shadow Hills Baptist Church for 22 years.

Travel and vacations were experiences that Mildred truly enjoyed. She preferred to seek out excitement wherever she went and she was partial to vacations that were casual and laid back with an atmosphere of “live and let live.” She was willing to leave her plans open and flexible, just in case something more interesting came along. Favorite vacations included Hawaii, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Disneyland and Disney World.

Mildred was a lover of animals and cherished her pets. One of Mildred’s favorites was Isabella, a Teacup Yorkshire Terrier. They were best friends for fourteen years.

When Mildred’s retirement finally came in 1994, she was well prepared. She used logical analysis of her retirement options in order to ensure her retirement would be fulfilling. Still, she was able to easily adapt to possible changes and enjoyed just having fun and being relaxed. Her new life involved relocating to Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mildred passed away on May 21, 2020 at European Senior Living Group Home after a battle with Alzheimer's Disease. She is survived by her daughter:
Deborah, grandchildren Christina (Matthew) and Ronald and great grandchildren Alexander and Sophia. Services were held at Shadow Hills Baptist Church.

Mildred was the kind of person who could win others over easily. A concrete communicator, she relied on her senses to increase her involvement and awareness of others. She was always able to provide amusing repartee to her friends and acquaintances, offering a seemingly endless supply of quips, anecdotes, jokes and stories. If Mildred had a theme song written about her, it might well have been “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” She enjoyed her life and the experience of living it. This is how everyone will remember Mildred E. Hinton
