We were very sorry to hear of Mildred's death; however we are glad her suffering is over. She is now with her Heavenly Father and at peace. May God go with each member of her family in the months ahead without her.

I am so sorry to hear about Mildred. She went to school with my Mom, Joyce Anne Cheeley Grey. We always had lunch when we were in town. My Uncle Dennis Cheeley and Aunt Judy Wingold were also customers. God bless Mildred and her family at this sad time. Heaven was blessed with another angel. We live in Vermont and won't be able to attend services. Thinking of all of you now.

So sorry to hear of Mildred's passing. When we were home to visit we always loved coming to Mildred's for lunch or supper and if she was there she always stopped by to say hello. Such a sweet and loving lady. She will be dearly missed. Rest In Peace dear Mildred!

Mildred was a wonderful person. I first met her when I was a delivery boy at Free State Laundry and would stop by Mildred's Meals when I would come back to Kenbridge to visit. Keeping the family in our prayers
