1906 ~ 2004
Mildred Erica Schmitter Ladd passed away peacefully on Oct. 16, 2004.
She was born in Utica, New York on September 12, 1906 to Earnest Schmitter and Augusta Mueller. She was the youngest of three brothers and four sisters. She was graduated from the New York State College for Teachers in Albany in 1927. On August 14, 1928 she was married to Thyril L. Ladd, the sweetheart of her life. For over 30 years she was employed by the State of New York.
She is survived by three children: Shirley Bohl (Cal), Thyril L. Ladd, Jr. (Beverly) and Carol Raymond. Mildred had seven grandchildren: John Bohl, Daniel Bohl, Karen Munley, Valerie Loudenback, Diana Wilson, Curtis Raymond, Jr. and Daniel D. Raymond; and seven great-grandchildren.
Mildred possessed a brilliant mind from her early childhood until her death. She passed her love of learning onto her children. She had a deep faith in the Lord and believed strongly in the power of prayer and eternal life.
The family thanks the staff at Care Source who were kind and gentle and met her every need during her final days, and to Dr. Fred Gottlieb. They went the extra mile. God bless them.
Funeral services will be held Thursday Oct. 21, 2004 at 11 a.m. in the Foothill 3rd Ward, 1794 So. Texas St. (2405 E.), where family and friends may call one half hour before services. Under the direction of Larkin Mortuary.
