Mildred was a native of Calhoun County and lived in Georgia since 1963. She worked at the Atlanta Airport for many years before retiring and was a huge fan of the Atlanta Braves and watched every televised game. Mildred was quick to answer many questions presented on her favorite tv game shows Jeopardy and Family Feud. She enjoyed fishing at Camp Jill, reading, watching hummingbirds and talking with her family and friends. Mildred was an expert seamstress and made most of her clothing. She was active, alert and maintained her own household until about four weeks ago when pancreatic cancer overtook her and quickly disabled her. She was a very strong and loving woman who overcame many adversities during her almost 100 years of life. She was extremely proud of her four sons and their families and her sons service in the military. She will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her. The family wishes to thank Dr. T.
