Mildred was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and a lifetime member and past President of the American Legion Women Auxiliary Post 2078 in East Peoria. She loved her country and had a great collection of American flags, as well as lots of everything in red, white and blue!
She was a longtime member of the Caterpillar Retirees Club, where she had great friends and enjoyed many wonderful lunches at Table #4, where it was a running joke that their table was always called last for lunch. Table #4 will be called first this week!
Mildred appreciated each and every card and note she received over the last several months. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Shepherd’s Way at Proctor Place and those who lovingly took care of her during her final weeks.
