Condolence & Memory Journal

Family and friends,
I know that this is a very difficult time. It's never easy to lose someone you love but the Bible promises us at John 5:28,29 that you will see Mildred again. Until then may your hearts be filled with the wonderful memories of joyful times spent together as you celebrate a life well lived. Please accept my condolences.

Mrs, K is what we all called her in nursing school, She is the most sincere and caring instructor I had, I will miss her. We enjoyed sitting at the evening meetings together at camp meeting, I wish the family my sincere sympathy.

Cousin Mildred memories are of a sweet, soft spoken, gentle woman who was always so "put together". She looked so cute with her late husband (who was my dentist) and she had a radient smile. Her hope in Jesus is now realized and sealed for eternity. Condolences to her family on her homecoming which takes her from their presence.

I am a 1969 graduate of the Johnston-Willis Hospital School of Nursing. Mrs. Koliadko (Mrs.K. as we called her) was the dearest instructor that I remember. She was a little lady in statue but a real dynamo in performance and instruction. I don't think I ever saw her upset with a student or a patient. She was with us on the Medical-Surgical floors. I have many fond memories of her and was saddened to read her obituary.
