Mildred was a loving nurturing mother. She was a member at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. She enjoyed cooking and was an avid baker. Holidays at her home were no ordinary holiday, they were an event, as everyone in her family would get together for the feast that she would prepare. She had a true
passion for gardening as she kept her garden immaculate. Mildred enjoyed her getaways to her local casinos and never missed the opportunity to go to Reno or Las Vegas. Who could forget her Friday Night BINGO, where Mildred’s place was always saved, especially for her. Mildred was a devoted wife, a most loving mother and an extraordinary grandmother. She will truly be missed.
