Mildred P. Flanders, age 76, passed on October 19, 1994.

Born September 30, 1918 in Grover, Wyoming to Joseph Lars and Deseret C. Petersen. Married Charles E. Flanders, June 14, 1940.

Employed by Granite School District Lunch Program for 27 years.

She walked in the path of Christ setting an example as a tower of strength filled with kindness, love, and a compassion that she shared generously and unconditionally with those in need; to her family, and to her friends. She was many times over a caregiver: any soul in need of a meal, a bed for the night, a coat to keep them warm or a shoulder to lean on found it at her humble abode.

Her talents were many, and all who knew her were blessed through the treasures in her gifts. She will be missed, but imagine the splendor in her smile as her soul unites once again with her beloved husband in Paradise.

Survivors: daughter, Jean Crown, grandson, S. Troy Bagwell, both Los Angeles, Calif., Ruby Crandale, Cokeville, Wyoming; Melvin C. Petersen, Alpine, Utah; Pearl Hansen, Parowan; Dean C. Petersen, Bear Lake, Utah; Stanley C. Petersen, Merced, Calif.; Virginia Daley, Kearns.

Preceded in death by her husband, Charles E. Flanders, deceased, March 17, 1993, daughter, Donna May Flanders, December 7, 1949.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, October 22, 1994 at 12 noon, at Wasatch Lawn Mortuary Chapel, 3401 South Highland Drive, where friends may call on Friday evening from 6-8 p.m. and on Saturday, one hour prior to services.

Interment, Murray City Cemetery.
