Mildred Louise Steward Gurb
Birth: Nov. 25, 1916
Durant
Bryan County
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Nov. 5, 1994
Fort Worth
Tarrant County
Texas, USA

She married John Phillip Thompson 6 Jun 1931 in Durant, Oklahoma. They had two children, James and Jeanette, and were then divorced. Mildred married Richard Robert Gurb 25 Jan 1952 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He died in 1974. After Richard's death, she had a succession of short marriages. She married Minor McKendrick Pierce 21 Jan 1985. They were divorced the same year. However, she kept his surname because she wanted to be known as Mildred Pierce after the 1945 movie for which Joan Crawford won an Oscar as Best Actress.

Her death certificate in Texas and the record at the San Jacinto Cemetery Office are under the name Mildred Pierce. Mildred was cremated, and her remains were buried next to her husband Richard Gurb.
