Mildred Bramley was born July 19, 1913 to Meta and William Lotz in Newark, New Jersey, and passed away on June 13, 2008.
Mildred graduated from Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey, and then attended Montclair State College in Upper Montclair, New Jersey, graduating with a major in Latin. Following college she took a one year course in medical record administration which became her career.
While working in medical records in Bay Shore, Long Island, she met William Bramley whom she married in 1938. They had two children, Marcia and Rodger.
Throughout the 1940's, she resided in Northport, Long Island. After several years in the Bronx and greater Chicago area, the family moved to Dallas in the mid-1950's. Mildred continued her medical records career in Dallas working at Methodist Hospital and then at St. Paul Hospital from where she retired as Director of Medical Records upon turning 65.
Mildred loved to travel. Throughout the 1960's and 70's, she took dozens of trips with friends throughout all parts of the United States and Canada. She traveled to Europe many times with special highlights including camping throughout Europe with Marcia and her family, and an Atlantic crossing on the QE2.
Never one to be idle, Mildred stayed busy during her retirement by taking French lessons, avidly reading, learning to crochet, and committing herself to many volunteer hours at the Dallas Public Library and the Plaid Door Resale Shop at St. Luke's Episcopal Church.
In 1998, Mildred moved to the C.C. Young Retirement Community. During her nine years in Independent Living, Mildred regularly volunteered at the reception desk and immersed herself in oil painting. She delighted in giving family and friends her works, and proudly participated in the "Art is Ageless" program for numerous years.
Mildred was a longtime member of Oak Lawn United Methodist Church where she attended the Lillian Tate Sunday School Class.
Mildred is survived by daughter Marcia Richards and her husband Daniel of Valrico, FL; son Rodger Bramley and his wife Linda Bramley of Plano, TX; grandchildren Christopher Horton, Tracey Daniels, Cheryl Palumbo, Angela Thornhill and Alicia Taylor as well as seven great-grandchildren.
