Mildred was born and raised in Minden, Louisiana June 23, 1959. She was an Air Force Brat for most of her life while her family moved and followed her father’s 20 years in the Air Force; Bossier, New York, Nebraska, Japan, and Hawaii. She was a graduate of Minden High School in 1977, graduate of Christ for the Nations Bible School in 1979, and received a teaching degree from SMU in Dallas.
Milly is best known for her antique business and appraisals. Her outgoing personality made her a favorite on early morning TV programs from Shreveport. She fit well with every social strata and was able to sing and play the guitar at the slightest request. Politicians and movie stars sought her out for a picture and her association on many occasions.
She traveled the world extensively and bought and sold leather clothing for years around the globe. She once sang for a wedding in the White House while the Bush’s were in office and as would be visited with Barbara Bush.
She co-hosted a radio program to promote her ministry around in Louisiana prisons. She was an ordained minister and co-laborer with her husband many years in Louisiana and Arkansas.
Her bright red hair and out-going personality made it difficult to not take notice of her in a crowd. The children called her Mama Milly and the grandchildren just called her Grand Ma.
Too many friends to mention, but as a note, she will surely miss them as will they miss her.
St. John 14:1-3
Let not your heart be troubled: Ye believe in God believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am there you may be also.
