Obituary Condolences

Engler, Mildred Knight,

87, of Louisville, KY, joined her Lord and Savior, family and friends in Heaven on August 1, 2017 with her loving family by her side. She was born on February 17, 1930 in Butler County as the 8th of 9 children to the late Maurine (Dobbs) and Perry Knight.

Mildred enjoyed quilting, singing, fishing and spending time with her family. Music soothed her soul and cooking was one of Mildred's love languages and she enjoyed feeding her friends and family. She never ran out of love and was loved in return by every life she touched.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her siblings; Jim, Sherman, Chester, Jack and Pete Knight, Esther Pryor and Lois Brandenburg.

Mildred is survived by her childhood sweetheart and husband of 70 years, Billie Engler; her children, Phyllis Straus (Jim), Leonard Engler (Debbie) and Rhonda Engler-Joseph (David); her 6 grandchildren, Ronald, Michael, Melissa, Rebecca, Amy and Piper; 9 great grandchildren and her sister, Bettie Warrick.

Visitation will be on Friday, August 4, 2017 from 4-8 and Saturday, August 5, 2017 from 11-1 at Arch L. Heady and Son at Westport Village, 7410 Westport Road. A funeral service to celebrate Mildred's life will be Saturday at 1 in the chapel at Arch L. Heady and Son at Westport Village.
