[NOTE- Her year of birth has been changed back to 1910 because there are 2 different transcriptions for her birth record. The LDS website transcribed her birth record from the West Virginia ledger as October 9, 1909. The West Virginia Arts, Culture, and History website currently has her birth transcribed as October 9, 1910. So we'll go with that. But Mildred told several family members that her parents would never let her see her own birth certificate, so she once thought she might be adopted. Her sister laughed with her when she told that story].

Mildred was the daughter of Enoch Ray Burnside and Mamie Mae Wery. She was married to William Frederick Crutchley in June, 1930. They were married for 57 years and the parents of two sons and two daughters (linked below except for living daughter).

From her high school yearbook in Hagerstown, Maryland (where she spent her senior year):

"A still tongue-a wise head"

Activities- Home Beautiful Club and French Club

Mildred, an ambitious and petite young damsel came to Allegany this year from Roanoke High School. Her bright smile immediately won for her numerous friends. On meeting this little brown-eyed Senior one immediately grasps the full meaning of the old adage, "Still waters run deep."

When in need of either sympathy or knowledge "ye Seniors" turn to Mildred. We know that Mildred is possessed with a desire to teach "Math" and we of Allegany wish her success.
