Thank You for visiting my sweet and dearest Aunt Middy. She always brought sunshine to everyone. Your visit is very much appreciated by our family. God bless.
༻✿ Mildred Sterling Stockton was the daughter of Percy and Elva Simpson Sterling born on 11/30/1916 in Clermont County, Branch Hill, Ohio. Many people called her "Mill" and some called her Aunt Middy.
Mildred married William Russell Smith on 8/12/1935 and lived in Amelia, Ohio. They had two children together: 1) Georgia Rae Smith, born 6/22/1936, in Clermont County, Amelia, Ohio; and 2) Sandra Lee Smith, born 1/1/1941, Hamilton County, Cincinnati, Ohio. The marriage ended in divorce.
Mildred met the love of her life and soul when she met Owen Delos Stockton and they married on 1/17/1947 and settled into family life in Amelia, Ohio. Together they had seven wonderful children:
1) Joy Kay Stockton, born 11/15/1947, Clermont County, Amelia, Ohio;
2) Mildred Corinne Stockton, born 10/14/1949, Clermont County, Amelia, Ohio;
3) Barbara Jo Stockton, born 7/25/1951, Clermont County, Amelia, Ohio;
4) Owen "Sonny" Delos Stockton, Jr., born 3/7/1953, Hamilton County, Mariemont Ohio;
5) Steven Michael Stockton, born 8/15/1956, Hamilton County, Cincinnati, Ohio, died 3/12/1978, Clermont County, Amelia, Ohio, in an automobile accident due to stormy weather;
6) Richard Sterling Stockton, born 4/12/1958, Hamilton County, Cincinnati, Ohio; and
7) Kimberley Ann Stockton, born 1/13/1960, Hamilton County, Cincinnati, Ohio.
My dear Aunt Middy was a good and faithful Christian and was always bright and cheerful. She made everyone feel like they were special because that is how she saw each person. She loved her husband and children dearly and felt God's blessings in every grandchild. She loved growing plants and could make anything grow. She loved cats, too. There was always one sunning in the window or wrapping itself around her legs. Her beloved "O. D." passed away from a heart attack in 1991 and she never remarried. She suffered from Alzheimer's for many years. Finally God called her faithful soul home to be with Him and her cherished husband.
May Aunt Middy find blessings and peace in the presence of God in her eternal home of heaven.
