Mildred was a wonderfully loving mom and grandma. She doted on her grandchildren, counting each one special. She was a hardworking mom who provided a secure home life for her family. She loved people, putting their needs ahead of her own needs.

Mildred was noted for her ability to fix anything, especially before calling for outside help. She had a “mechanical sense” diagnosing the problem and then visualizing a solution. Her problem solving may not have been quite orthodox but…it worked.

She was strong spoken and freely expressed her opinions. Mildred was a happy lady and her sense of humor was engaging and contagious; diffusing a tense situation or bringing even more joy to the time at hand.
