Mildred – Up Close and Personal

To protect the living, I have removed names from the photos in Mildred’s gallery.  Please enjoy her family’s memories of Mildred with her children, grand children, great children, and great-great grandchildren.

If you have memories of Mildred that you would like to share, please don’t hesitate to share them.  I am a firm believer that our future generations would enjoy hearing the stories of their ancestors, at least as much as I do.  We are the only ones to pass those down.

Mildred was a grandmother, a very sweet one. She was a fabulous cook and her Spanish Rice and homemade spaghetti and meatballs were legendary. I was always amused how she would prepare a plate for the dog before she fed the family, he even got a buttered dinner roll! She was also a great card player, a favorite pastime for her and Charles. She was one of those people that you always enjoyed seeing as she was smiling and genuinely happy to see you. She worked very hard taking care of the home and family as a quite old fashioned lady, by our standards today in 2017. We shared a habit that I didn’t know we shared until years after her death. Every new place she visited she brought home a rock and placed it in her garden. She could grow anything! As we walk through our gardens we remember those fond times, people, and places. Now as I walk through my garden I also remember my connection to Mildred. ~Karen
