On 2nd June 2023, peacefully at her home with her loving family by her side, Mildred, aged 95 years of Accrington. The dearly beloved wife of the late Albert, cherished and devoted mum of Jennifer, Deborah, Roger and the late Janet, dear mother in law of Keith, Georgie, Peter and the late Billy. A loving grandma of Adam, Scott, Mark, Joanne, Oliver, Alistair, Sally and Chloe and great grandma of Jack, Evie, Rumi, Jacob, Wynn, Harrison and Neve.
Mildred began her working life in a bakery before becoming a GPO telephonist. Ever a loving and caring lady, Mildred then began her nursing training but her young family needed her and so she devoted herself to been a housewife and mum, giving her family a firm foundation for life. Mildred then went onto to do various jobs, working into her 70’s. She had so much energy and was like a little Fire-fly, whizzing around getting her jobs done. She had also been a legendary pastry maker, making the best cheese and onion pies in the world. She loved reading her newspaper cover to cover and had read every Betty Nield, Mills and Boons novel. She immersed herself in repeats of Midsomer Murders but always said it was never the same when her screen heart throb, John Nettles, left. Mildred was beautiful inside and out and was always so perfectly presented and her clothing items had to match, always. She had a wonderful sense of humour and a radiant smile. First and foremost, Mildred cherished her family and they in return cherished this very special mum, grandma and great grandma. She thoroughly enjoyed her many trips to Perth, Australia to visit daughter Jennifer and family and also her visits to Hong kong and Germany, when Janet lived there. Mildred was a dynamic, loving and exemplary family lady and will be deeply missed by them all. May the angels accompany her journey and wrap their wings around her.
