Mildred was born January 27, 1927 in LaCygne, Kansas, daughter of Mabel and Roy Smith. She was truly an extraordinary woman. She lived her life with fearless passion and unapologetic strength. She was a brave spirit way ahead of her time. She was a feminist and social justice advocate. Mildred believed in the rights of all human beings and never shied away from speaking her mind. Her love of travel and adventure took her to nearly every corner of the earth. She was full of energy, loved to laugh, and valued her friends and family above all. We can’t even begin to describe how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Richard Alport; daughter Corrine Smith (Howard) ; two grandchildren Lauren Zolton (Mark), Justin Smith, and Howard Smith III; extended family and friends.

she was a terrific Aunt and more importantly, a real friend. I have missed her a lot (particularly the lunches we used to have back in the old days) since leaving the Overland Park area.

I am saddened to read of Mildred's passing, but it has brought a flood of memories of the many wonderful years I shared with her as my best friend.I so enjoyed our many vacations to Taos and Europe and our many activities from arts and crafts to hot air ballooning. But most of all, Mildred was always there as a confidant with good advise when you needed it. Thank you, Mildred for the joy you brought into my life.

I remember your mother as a feisty,interesting woman! Needless to say, it has been years since I saw her, but I remember being in awe of her when I was a young girl! Lots of memories at Lake of Ozarks when all we kids were little. Corrine and Dick---much peace.
