Mildred Nielson Zabriskie Silva

Mildred Zabriskie Silva, our loving mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully in Provo on August 3, 2012, just short of her 100th birthday. She was born September 25, 1912, to Charles Fredrick and Loretta Gregerson Nielson in Monroe, Utah. She married Grant Zabriskie on November 8, 1930, in Salt Lake City and they were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. Grant passed away in 1965. She married Joseph Silva on September 22, 1983. Joe passed away in 2002.

Mildred was raised in Monroe where she attended South Sevier High School and lived to be the last survivor of her graduating class. As a young married couple they moved to Richfield and later to Utah Valley where they raised their five children. She loved gardening, crocheting and handiwork, playing cards, dancing and being surrounded by her family. During her employment at Firmage's, JC Penney, and ZCMI she made many wonderful friends. She joined the church at the age of 17 and was an active member throughout her life, serving in many callings, including a full-time mission to Palmyra, New York and a service mission in Utah.

She is survived by her children: Rodney (JoAnn) Zabriskie of Sandy, Marilynn (Richard) Nielson of Midway, Karen (Clyde) Edwards of Orem, John (Carol) Zabriskie of Lindon, Judy (Len) Huntington of Helper; 18 grandchildren, 44 great grandchildren, and 15 great-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Exilda Crabb, and four brothers, RG, Marius, Roger, Gary Nielson, and two great-grandchildren.
