I personally remember Mildred when she was up and moving around. Her shopping sprees with her daughter Jan and always remembering to have her purse. She never went anywhere without her purse. She always enjoyed talking about her daughter and reminiscing about the times she served at church. What a beautiful spirit she has.

So glad I had you for my Mom. Loved the times we spent together, whether it was going shopping or out to lunch or the two of us traveling to London, England and Paris, France. I’ll always remember the tour buses to Harrah’s with you as the hostess. You were the strongest woman I have ever known. I love you and I am already missing you.

I had the pleasure of working with Mildred at Pilot Life Ins. She was always upbeat, always had a smile. Heaven has gained an angel.
