She was predeceased by her parents, Nathan and Mary Wright; four sisters, Marge Elliston, Elma Powell, Delpha Ruby and Ruby James. She is survived by sisters Darlene Halvorson of Aurora, and Ardis Rubesam of Limon, and one brother, Sonny Wright of Nashville, Tenn. and many nieces and nephews.
Mildred accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior as a child and loved studying her Bible and was a longtime supporter of the Pillar of Fire Church as well as many other Christian organizations.
