Let the memory of Mildred be with us forever.
  • 81 years old
  • Born on April 15, 1937 in Taft, Florida, United States.
  • Passed away on March 8, 2019 in Orlando, Florida, United States.

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Mildred Martin 81 years old , born on April 15, 1937 and passed away on March 8, 2019. We will remember her forever.

She was a long time resident of Taft, Florida and member of the First Baptist Church of Taft. She was married 60 years to Arlin Martin and raised five children: Tony Lamar Pritchard, Arlin Martin III, Karen Edmondson, Marlene Clifton and Dina Walker.  From this loving family sprang 14 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. 

Millie loved to play and help call bingo at the American Legion at which she was an auxiliary member for many years. She liked to fish off the dock with a cane pole and it didn't matter if she caught anything or not. She enjoyed playing cards and dominoes with her family and especially loved beating her grandchildren during intense games. 

She also enjoyed making trips to the casino with her friends and just spending time with them.

Her greatest passion was feeding people. She was a good old southern style cook that would feed anyone that sat at her table. She was a phone call away from cooking up a storm anytime the church called.

Dearest Millie Though our families were miles apart, it seems there was always a thread that kept us in touch. Your cards, calls, and holidays greetings seemed to always keep us up on things. We will remember the memories. love always Barbara & Grant
