Mildred was born in her grandparent's home,( Zach and Mattie Currie) in Oakhurst, Texas. She passed away in her daughter's home, within sight of the same house in which she was born. She loved family, children especially, and often had children other than her own living with her, including her brother Talmadge and twin sisters Doris and Darlene. She had a love for cooking and was known as one of the best cooks around home, particularly for her cakes and pies. She worked in the school cafeteria at Huntsville Intermediate School for five years and went on to retire after working for 20 years in the cafeteria at Gulf Coast Trade School in New Waverly, Texas. She was very giving and always put other's needs before her own. She loved flowers and had a green thumb; any plant she touched was sure to grow. She was a member of the Huntsville Church of Christ for over 50 years.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Dr. Larry Wells, his nurses and the entire office staff at Huntsville Family Medical Practice for all their help throughout the past year, and to Pathfinders Home Health Care agency.
