Mildred better known as Aunt Toot, Mil and Mom was a very humble person. Mildred was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. She loved it when her children and grandchildren would visit. Her sense of humor and love of laughter were delightful for all who knew her. Everyone enjoyed her company, especially her children. She was fun loving, humorous, enjoyed life and unquestionably accepted many of life's challenges. She was a woman of deep faith and a devout Catholic. Her children absolutely adored her and in her illness cared for her in a most loving manner.
Mildred was a special lady. She never put herself first. Her thoughts, actions, prayers and daily living were about the people she loved. Although the past couple of months had been a most difficult time for her and her family, she continued to be an example to all who knew her. Even in her illness and circumstances surrounding her illness, she continued to give her children the strength they needed to carry on.
She possessed so many fruits of the Holy Spirit. Her goodness, love, patience, kindness, graces, and simplicity was exemplified in everlasting love.
Her talents included journaling, reading, crocheting, and cooking, sewing and just enjoying a cup of coffee with friends.
She was a member of the American Auxiliary, Altar Society, and Catholic Daughters. She supported a lot of Catholic Charities.
We will cherish the good memories of our beautiful mother, and sadly miss the love she gave to her seven children, grandchildren, and friends.
