Mildred & family, Cindy, Joe, Sarah, Amber and the entire Brown Family. Thinking of you with deepest sympathy. May it comfort you to know that death cannot diminish the important ways your husband, father and brother touched your lives, that grief cannot take away the good times you shared, that sorrow will fade in time...but memories remain forever. His spirit lives on and always will. Times he laughed, gave advice, or just listened echo in the memories of those whose lives he touched. And in being so remembered, his legacy will live on. May love, time and memories soften your sadness and bring you peace. Tanice and Brian Bowker - Posted by: Tanice and Brian Bowker (Friend) on: Nov 03, 2022

Mildred and Marvin were our neighbors when we first moved to Anola. Thanks to our wonderful neighbors Marvin and Mildred, we were introduced to their family and many friends who became friends and acquaintances of ours as well. We enjoyed seeing them both on their many walks around town and getting together once and while to visit. Marvin and Dean had some great conversations over the years until they moved across the road. It was a pleasure getting to know you Marvin. Rest peacefully our jolly friend down the road. ~love Dean and Stacey - Posted by: Stacey and Dean (Neighbor ) on: Nov 01, 2022

I worked (and lunched) with Mavin for many years. I always appreciated his ability to make me laugh and keep me nervous if I didn't know if he was lurking behind me ready to pounce. I have so many fond memories of his friendship and his helpfulness. My condolences to Mildred, his family, and his many friends for their loss. - Posted by: David Haack (Co-worker and friend ) on: Nov 01, 2022
