1922 - 2011 Obituary Condolences

Mildred Skala of Orland, passed away March 14, 2011, at the age of 89, with her children by her side.

She is the daughter of the late John and Agnes Turek, born February 25, 1922 in Hemingford, Neb.

She is survived by her six children, Sylvia Sexton (Bob), Jerry Jr. Skala (Kathy), Patty Montz (John), Daniel Skala (Irene), Betty Skala and Linda Johnson (Bob); 14 grandchildren, and 26 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, John and Agnes; husband, Jerry J; brothers, Johnny, Stanley and Jerry; and grandson, Brad Jasper.

She enjoyed reading, gardening, watching her grandchildren auto race, play football, sports and 4-H events, attending the Glenn County Fair to watch them show their animals. She traveled with her family and friends, including a trip to Egypt and enjoyed dancing to the Beer Barrel Polka. She spent a lot of time with her many grand and great-grandchildren, being their loudest and proudest cheerleader.

Mildred and Jerry J married May 25, 1940, starting their life in the Lake community in Orland as farmers and their legacy continues to this day. Over the years they were dairyman, had orchards and started hay baling, along with crop sharing. She took care of the bookkeeping for the Ranch and worked alongside Jerry J.

Mildred will be remembered for her many stories of Nebraska and how much she enjoyed her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; they were the apple of her eye.
