Mildred was born in Stricklerdale, PA on November 8th, 1926. She helped her parents on the farm with milking cows prior to attending school each morning. Mildred graduated from Washington Township High School in 1945 after which she worked for a year at the Stanley Company in Chambersburg. She was contacted by Upland College, Upland CA in 1947 and accepted the invitation with a young lady from her church, who was also accepted. Together they traveled to California and Mildred graduated from Upland College with a Jr. Diploma in 1950.
Mildred became a committed follower of Jesus Christ at the age of 10. She taught Sunday School and Bible School and was also a committed Deacon's wife. She helped with the Eat and Run program, the Mennonite Central Committee and the sewing auxiliary. Mildred was an accomplished seamstress and she, along with her skilled sewing will be missed by many.
All who knew Mildred, but especially her family, will miss her beautiful smile and unlimited love she freely bestowed on them. Her kind and gentle heart for everyone she met is far reaching and now SO missed.
