After Forrest’s death, Mildred sold the family farm and moved to Sidney. In 2003, she became a resident of the Skilled Nursing Facility of The Hospital in Sidney until it closed and then moved to the Oxford Veterans Home where she resided until her death.
Mildred was a member of the Church of Christ in Sidney. Mildred and her husband had earlier attended the First Baptist Church in Mount Upton. Faith in God was a very important part of her daily life. “Millie” was a good friend and listening ear to so many around her.
Her legacy of hard work and dedication combined with a loving and caring spirit showed forth God’s love to her friends and family and endeared her to so many.
She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Friends may call from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, at C.H. Landers Funeral Chapel, 21 Main St., Sidney.
Funeral services will take place at 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 23 with Larry Bailey of the Church of Christ of Sidney, officiating. Burial will follow in Greenlawn Cemetery, Bainbridge.
Condolences and memories may be shared with Millie’s family online at www.landersfh.com.
