Mildred was a devout Christian and a member of the Mt. Zion United Methodist Church for over 50 years. She was very active in the United Methodist Women until her health prevented her from going to church. In her church career, she was the secretary of the Sunday School, Nurture Chairperson, helped with Vacation Bible School, served on numerous church committees and was always eager to help prepare and donate food for church functions. Mildred loved to cook, bake, and loved her garden and canning what she produced. She was especially known for her homemade pies and soups and always found a way to can whatever God provided from her garden. Mildred was a member of the Northern Garrett Republican Women for over 35 years, helped cook countless meals for family get-togethers and special events at the Wilhelm Recreational Area.
Although Mildred never worked outside of the home, she raised six children after the loss of her first husband. Mildred and Fred enjoyed life working together until Fred's passing. Mildred worked on thier farm and worked hard in her garden and at times she would say it would have been easier going out to a job every day than being home but she manged through rough times and with the loss of two husbands.
Mildred always made sure she had homemade treats for any visitors and especially cookies for when her grandchildren and great-grandchildren stopped by.
