Mildred was a member of the Union County (NJ) Hiking Club, the Sierra Club, and the Appalachian Mountain Club. She loved to travel and enjoyed road trips and train trips as often as possible. Since moving to Citrus County, Mildred was involved with the sewing circle and other activities in her church, and volunteered at the hospice thrift store.
