Mildred was also a member of the Oblong American Legion Post #219 Auxiliary.  She loved to put together jig saw puzzles and after completing them she would make them into framed pictures; crocheting, making all the kids afghans. Mildred and Floyd loved to dance the schottische and Mildred was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals watching the games on TV all the time.
