1918 - 2015 Notice Condolences
Mildred Sievers Notice


We celebrate the passing from this life of Mildred Marie Sievers, nee Baumgardner, on November 22, 2015. A caring and loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, she has been the source of great joy and inspiration to all those who knew her over her 97 years. Mildred was born May 10, 1918 in Johnstown PA, and was married to the late Edward Sievers Sr. also of Johnstown. She traveled the world with her Army family, surviving evacuation from Korea with two small children as that war broke out. A former home economics teacher, Mildred was an excellent seamstress and quilter. She was an avid gardener and enjoyed playing party and duplicate bridge. After Edward's retirement from the Army in 1965, the family settled in Odenton, MD. When Edward passed in 1997, she moved to the Charlestown Retirement Community in Catonsville where she enjoyed many years with her friends and family. Mildred is survived by son Edward Sievers Jr and wife Kathleen of Severna Park MD, daughter Ruth Ann Sievers and husband Steven Hanft of Reston VA, and son Gary Sievers and wife Patricia of Ellicott City MD. Also surviving are grandsons Michael Sievers and wife Karen of Severna Park, MD, Steven Sievers and wife Chelsea of Fountain Valley, CA, Samuel Hanft of Reston, VA and three great granddaughters, Makenna, Angela, and Mia Sievers. Private graveside services will be held at Arlington National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions would be appreciated to Gilchrist Hospice Care, 5537 Twin Knolls Road, Ste 443, Columbia, MD 21045-9906.
