Mildred G. Denison, age 89 and resident of Bartlesville, Oklahoma, passed away on Monday, February 11, 2013, in Heritage Villa Nursing Center, Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
Mildred G. Gotheridge was born on April 2, 1923 on the family homestead north of Rushville, Nebraska. She was the daughter of Harry Gotheridge and Edna (Taylor) Gotheridge. She grew up in the Nebraska area where she received her formal schooling.
On December 25, 1939, Mildred and Raymond Franklin Denison were united in marriage in Eli, Nebraska. Mr. Denison preceded her in death on August 19, 1996.
Mildred was a wonderful wife and mother. She had been a member of the Eli, Nebraska Wesleyan Church since 1950, where she served for many years as the church pianist. She also was a member of the Ladies Missionary Group. Along with her church work, she enjoyed quilting, crocheting, reading, and especially loved crafting. She could make something out of nothing! She enjoyed cooking Sunday family dinners, and especially enjoyed making donuts. She always loved going to church and Bible study. Her family will cherish her Bible because it has all the notes of sermons and who preached each sermon.
