Mildred was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who loved spending time with her family. Mildred was the end of two generations; she was the last aunt of the Notsch Family and the last sibling of the Arthur and Blanch Lloyd Family. She loved giving of her time and talents, most notably working in the kitchen for the famous St. John the Baptist Parish Brunches. Mildred also enjoyed whipping up her delicious trifles for the yearly Notsch Invitational Gunshoot and playing a good card game of 500 whenever a group of four or more gathered.

She is survived by her children, David of Holdingford, Stephen (Karen) of Big Lake, Margie (Dennis) Hiemenz of Clearbrook, Alan (Birgit) of Sauk Rapids, Carl (Debra Garrison) of Davie, FL, Andy (Gloria) of Avon, Sandy of Little Falls, Nancy (Ed) Uhlenkamp of Clarissa, Barb (Joel Maxwell) Notsch of Upsala and Lloyd (Sandy) of Sartell; 20 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
