Mildred Leaver blessed my life both personally and professionally. She was an encourager and a mentor to many. I am one of those people.

It was a pleasure for me to visit with her in her home. She had many stories based on the varied experiences of her live, which she told with wit and enthusiasm.

I continued to visit Mildred after she moved to Atlanta. She lived in a very attractive home for senior adults. Her family visited her often and she spent many family holidays in their homes. It was very special for her to be close to her two great grandchildren and to know the activities of their lives.

The first time I visited Mildred in Atlanta, she said to me, "Frances, they do not believe that I am 102,"Sure enough, I was questioned about that fact by one of the residents.

My answer was." Let me think, I attended her 100th Birthday party in Rolla, Missouri about 2 years ago. So, that would make her 102." I was not asked that question again. I learned that Mildred was the only resident older than the late 90's.

On every birthday, she received many greetings from family and educator friends from Missouri. To be remembered by so many was a great delight for Mildred.

At each birthday celebration she was asked, "To what do you owe your long life?" Of all the different answers she gave, I think this one is the most classic---" Well, I just Never Did Die!!!” She really laughed when she shared that one with me.

A LONG Life of 108 years very well lived and shared with others. That is MY FRIEND, MILDRED LEAVER.

Her memory will linger for a very long time.

What an amazing woman! She was a substitute teacher when I was in grade school in the early 80s. Everyone loved here stories. I will never forget her. Even in junior high we would still beg for her stories, though she said we were too old. (smile).
I do hope that Rolla Public Schools will name a library or school in her honor. She did so much for education in Missouri.

I agree with all the comments about Mildred Leaver but I just have to add that to our son, Duke, she was the classiest lady in the world. He told me when I was in my early 40s that he hoped I'd be just like Mrs. Leaver when I got old. I told him I wasn't even that classy as a young woman! He wrote me the night he heard of her death and was sad at her passing. So was I, but she's just transitioned to her eternal home and we have loads of precious memories of her.

I met Mildred back in 2005 at Presbyterian Manor when I had to put my Mom in their nursing home. Although I never knew her as a teacher, we just hit it off, and whenever I would come visit Mom, we'd share an hour or so just chatting about all sorts of things! What a wonderful person and she will be missed.
