She followed Ellis to San Francisco, California and Provo, Utah as he worked before returning to Orange to be near her family and raise her children. She became caregiver to her mother and father in their later years as well as to Ellis during his battle with cancer. Mildred was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother and will be deeply missed.

The family would like to extend its gratitude to the staff at Prescribed Home Health and Harbor Hospice, Ryan and Melissa Menard, Sharon Whitton, Ruth Chesson, and Maureen Duhon for being a part of the village that assisted in caring for Mildred after the devastating death of her daughter, Shanna, in 2016.
