Mildred was one week short of her
102nd birthday. She passed to be with
Jesus, quietly and peacefully, with
family by her side. Born January 25,
1918, in Lackawanna, to a family of four
sisters and one brother. Surviving the
1930’s Depression and working as a
“Rosie the Riveter” during WWII, were
just some of the challenges of her life.
In the 1950’s, getting married and
having her only child, James, was the
light of her life according to her. Even
with all the hard times and challenges,
she was always able to teach us love,
respect and affection for others, along
with sincere sympathy for their
problems. She was a beautiful soul,
whose admiration and love for the
simple things in life, friends, family,
cooking, baking and her beautiful flower
garden. Mildred had a great sense of
humor and overall feistiness that got
her to that age. She will be missed. God
Bless her and may she rest in peace. In
lieu of flowers, donations may be made
in Mildred’s name to Hospice of Buffalo.
