  1. Mildred and was a kind and gentle friend, and we will always have fond memories of her. Mildred and Alene were morning walking partners for almost 10 years, and we had dinner together every Friday night until the night before she entered the hospital. May she rest in peace.

  2. Millie, you will be missed. You were like a mother to me. Millie was my boss at SCSU and I remember the day I found out that I was expecting my first child (I hadn’t even told my husband yet) she looked at me and said .Congratulations, when is your baby due.. I still don’t know how she knew that. I will miss you Millie. We enjoyed celebrating many of our childrens birthdays with you and sharing our grandchildren. Some of the best times was going to your house in Woodbridge during the holidays and celebrating your birthday. P.S. Christine had another baby, Olivia is her name. She is as beautiful as you. Love, Mary

  3. To Mildred’s family I’m a driver at masonicare and I’m sadden by her passing.Everytime we met whether in the hallway or taking her out it was always a pleasure.What a lady and she would always bring a smile one for her and one for me.She always made me laugh Everytime we met it was such a joy what a great sense of humor.She would tell people that’s my boyfriend make sure to bring him back.I’ll miss my good friend Mildred,May God lift up her family knowing what joy she’s bringing up to heaven always with that smile and laughter

  4. Mildred was one of the nicest people I know; she never had an unkind word or thought to say about anyone or anything. We played cards every Friday night for years and often ended up laughing rather raucously about .who knows what.. I miss her so very, very much now and forever.
