Mildred was a spunky little woman who loved to talk and visit with family and friends. She always looked forward to the weekends that her nieces came to visit from Kentucky. She was a homemaker who loved flowers and working in the yard as long as she was able. She definitely had a green thumb. She was a quilter and made quilts for many years for her family and friends, who cherished them forever.

Mildred enjoyed having several of her nephews live with her and Buck over the years. She could tell numerous funny stories about these times. Mildred enjoyed going to church at Victory in God Church and reading her Bible until her eye disease made reading difficult.

Mildred enjoyed her many trips back home for visits and for family reunions.

She greatly appreciated the many times that her cousin, Jimmy Helton brought her back to Kentucky for family reunions.
