Mildred has 11 wonderful great-grandchildren whom she adored.
Mildred loved flowers, to play cards and mostly loved visits from her family.
Her past 10 years in Vermilion Court Assisted Living Princeton were wonderful for her. As she walked around town all the local business welcomed her and assisted her with her shopping and she was welcomed by the community.
Her long and lovely life was only made better by her move to Princeton in 2010, her constant contact with her family and her tenacity to try hard for herself.
We will all miss the Matriarch of our family. May she rest in peace. After that long life, she deserves to.
Love to all who knew her and love back to all from Mildred’s family.
Going with Mildred’s wishes, there will be no service. Please donate to Princeton Community Services in her honour.
