Mildred Gaddy Tadlock

May 31, 1928April 25, 2021

On Sunday, April 25, 2021, Mildred Gaddy Tadlock went home to meet her Lord and Savior.

Mildred was a wonderful and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She lived a long and beautiful life of 92 years.

As a founding member of Oakdale Baptist Church, Mildred attended service faithfully until her health declined. She devoted her life to her Lord in so many ways including teaching Sunday school and singing in the church choir.

Her sons Ronald (Janelle), Thomas (Jenny) and Kenny (Monette) survive Mildred along with her grandchildren Stacy Moody, Shannon Luffman, Chelsey Tadlock, Justin Tadlock, Jamie Tadlock, Taylor Hanes and Millie Richmond.

Mildred was so very fortunate to have met her great grandchildren Jacob Moody, Jaden Luffman, Carly Moody, Cade Luffman, Nikki Watson and Finley Haynes and a very special great great grandson Karsyn Whitlock.

She was preceded in death by her husband James Thomas Tadlock, son Bobby and great granddaughter Elizabeth Brooke Moody.

The family wishes to express their gratitude and love to Hospice of Iredell County but most especially Mildred’s longtime caregiver Kaylin Frye. Mildred loved her so dearly!

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 1:30pm at Oakdale Baptist Church located at 6440 Pleasant Grove Road in Charlotte. Mildred’s funeral service will begin at 2pm with burial immediately following at Forest Lawn West Cemetery.
