Mildred and Wayne Judd dated in high school. They both attended North Summit. Mildred enjoyed music and sang with quartets and choirs.
After they were married, they made their home in Hoytsville. They were the parents of three children. Tragedy struck the young family when Wayne was killed in a mining accident in the Weber coal mine (Chalk Creek) at the age of 31. It became necessary for Mildred to find an occupation to support her family. She worked for the county, AAA, and her parents, Herschel and Elsie Ball, and her sister Dona helped take care of the children.
Several years later, Mildred married Louis Saxton. Louis had two boys of his own. When their children were raised, they moved to Provo, where Mildred worked for Provo Land and Title until her retirement.
Mildred was a fun, loving, terrific grandmother and great grandmother. (Information obtained from the Summit County Historical Society.)
