She was noted to be an exceptional Ballroom dancer, gourmet Italian cook and an avid bowler! "A faithful Wife, a dedicated Mother and Grandmother. We are all so much better for knowing Mildred.

You will live forever in our hearts.” In lieu of flowers, the Family asks that donations be given to The Cedar Grove Ambulance and Rescue Squad, 651 Pompton Ave, Cedar Grove, New Jersey 07009.
