Mildred was born July 12, 1923 on a farm near Laurel, one of seven children of George and Elva Wyatt Wilson and attended school in Buena Vista. On January 4, 1946, she was married to Opal Burch at the First Baptist Church in Connersville. Mildred had worked at the envelope factory in West Carrollton, Ohio and had been employed as a sales clerk at George's Pharmacy in Brookville for "35 very good years." She was a member of the Connersville Baptist Temple and liked to read and correspond with her many friends and family. She enjoyed working in her yard and tending to her flower gardens. Most of all, she enjoyed her family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They were all very special to her. Mildred was also an avid collector of anything that had to do with "frogs."
