Mildred Marie Todd

Benton, AR - Mildred Marie Todd passed away on January 9, 2024, at the age of 86. She was born on May 22, 1937, in Glennwood, Arkansas. Mildred had a kind and loving heart that was evident to everyone she met.

Mildred was known for her selflessness and putting others before herself. Her pleasant demeanor and beautiful smile drew people towards her. She had an uncanny ability to make everyone feel welcome, never treating anyone as a stranger. Her kind nature knew no bounds.

Despite her kindness, Mildred also possessed a streak of stubbornness which showcased her independence. However, one of Mildred's most admirable qualities was her grounded faith in God. She firmly believed that God performed miracles and wanted to share her faith with everyone she encountered. Mildred never passed judgment but accepted everyone with open and loving arms.

In her spare time, Mildred enjoyed tending to her garden and growing the most beautiful flowers. Her green thumb brought vibrant color and life to the surroundings. Additionally, she had a collection of angels that held a special place in her heart.
