Mildred was a devoted Christian and served as an Elder and Clerk of Session at Fairmoor Presbyterian Church before joining Central College Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed making decorative cakes for her family and friends; during the holidays and special events her home always had the scent of home baked cakes, cookies and candies. Mildred was a member of the Gahanna Senior Center and was instrumental in forming a Wii bowling league, participated in their newsletter, played bingo, traveled and line danced. She was an avid card player and entertained her card comrades. She was always so very proud of her winnings even though it was a handful of pennies or a miniature candy bar.
