I knew Mildred, while working at the newspaper in Castle Rock,1980-1988. Whenever I see a news article about a "Kite Flying Festival", I think of her. She covered possibly the one and only held in Castle Rock and was so enthusiastic . Since she was "food editor" she dressed as a baker complete with a flowing white apron and cook's hat. Don't remember her kite ever getting into the air. She loved life to the fullest.

To the family of Mildred Brodbeck:
I worked with Mildred at the News-Press from 1982-1984, and was sad to learn of her passing. I attended the beautiful service for her today at Christ Episcopal Church. As Jeanne Adkins said at the reception, Mildred had a nose for news and a love of people, which made her know that everyone has a story. I remember one day Mildred breezed into the office after an interesting interview, bubbling over with excitement. I was 40 years younger than her, but starting to feel very jaded about working nights, days, and weekends for the newspaper. When she finished relating her story before she sat down to write it, I looked at her and said, "Mildred, I wish I were as young as you."

The minister talked about her hospitality. Jeanne Adkins and I had the good fortune to receive her hospitality on cold, snowy nights when the roads to the home we shared in Parker were icy. We would spend the night at Mildred's apartment after eating one of her delicious meals and talking and laughing into the night. It was very nice to know that we had a place to go if we were working late (as we usually were) and didn't want to make the treacherous drive back to Parker. I haven't seen Mildred in years, and saw her only once after she moved to Cantril House. But the memory of her laugh, her stories of rubbing elbows with Hollywood people like Robert Mitchum, and her delight in life and people - including her grandsons, son, and daughter-in-law - are still with me.

Most of her 96 years were packed with fun, adventures, friends, and work she enjoyed. She had a life well lived.
