Mildred L. Davis (known as Millie), 92, of Westmore,
Vt. passed away into The Lord's waiting arms, on
Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at her home surrounded
by her loving children.
She was born in Orleans, Vt on August 23,1929 to
Gladys and Gordon Wing. She was orphaned at a young
age and lived in many foster homes throughout the state.
It was during this time that she accepted The Lord into
her heart and began her mission of service to all she met.
Millie worked for her entire life on the farm she shared
with her dear husband, Alfred, married for 52 years
before his passing in 1999. Millie was a kind, inspiring
Christian woman who gave tirelessly of herself to her
community and the Westmore Community Church,
holding many offices including Church Deacon and
President of the Westmore Ladies Aid. A pillar of the
community, she was presented a plaque in her honor in
2019 by the Westmore Association.
She enjoyed cooking and baking and her raised donuts
were sought by all. She authored a cookbook "Just Add
Love" that is used by many in the Westmore community
and beyond. She loved sewing, knitting, crocheting,
quilting, gardening and putting food by. She welcomed
all into her home and there was always room at the table
for strangers. It could be said: "Let all who enter as guests,
leave as friends".
She was a member of the OWL (our Wing lineage)
and the Wing Family of America, Inc, and took great
pride in her royal lineage.
She is survived by her children; Brenda Woodward
(husband, Carlton, deceased 3/20) of West Lebanon,
NH; Darryl Davis and his wife Carol, of Barton, Vt.;
JoAnn Briand and her husband Rick of Picton, Ontario,
Canada; and Patricia Smith and her husband Sanford of
State College, Pa.; as well as many grandchildren, great
grandchildren; and great great grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband Alfred Davis,
her parents and her siblings, Donald, Sydney, Dorothy,
Charles, Royce and Thomas Wing.
There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date. In
lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Westmore
Community Church (27 Hinton Hill Road, Westmore,
Vt 05860) and designated for the upkeep of the Bell
Tower, remodeled by her son, Darryl in memory of
Mildred and Alfred Davis.
