Mildred's Story

Text size

Mildred Dellenbaugh-Wilson, 94, passed through heaven's gate on April 12, 2017. She was born September 17, 1922 in Van, Texas to Edd and Retha Clay.
Mildred married Ernest Dellenbaugh in Brownfield, Texas on February 6, 1941. She was a cheerleader in high school when they met. They moved to Edmond, Okla. shortly after. She was a devoted housewife until her kids were all grown and gone, but she always reminded them that they could always come home.
In 1968, she got her first job at McCalls Mens Store in Edmond. She was a men's tailor and quilter. Her other interest included running an antique shop in Creede, Colo. in the summertime. She really loved Creede and the people in it.
She spent her later years worrying about her kids. She never stopped thinking of them or trying to help. Her friends in the Nazarene Church and the Lord were her saving grace.
Mildred is survived by her three children, Allen Dellenbaugh of Kingsland, Texas, Ray Dellenbaugh of Creede, Colo., and Kathie Dellenbaugh Paulk of Edmond, seven grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and two nephews, Robert and Mark Clay.
She was preceded in death by her brother, R.L. Clay, daughter, Loulene Sapp, and her husband, Ernest Dellenbaugh.
Funeral services will be 10 a.m., Friday, April 14, 2017 at the First Church of the Nazarene with interment to follow at Gracelawn Cemetery Edmond, OK.
