Welcome to Mildred's Memorial & Informational Website!

Mildred Edith Sweet died on December 29, 2012, at her home in McMinnville, Oregon. A memorial will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2013, at 4:00 p.m. at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah Witnesses in McMinnville, Oregon. See our map (click here).

She was preceded in death by her parents Peat & Iren Seber and brother, Glenn Seber her daughter Rita Davis and her second husband of 28 years Fenton Sweet. She is survived by her loving son, Robert and wife Jerlun Davis of Yamhill, Oregon. She touched the lives of too many people to count. She will be missed by one and all.

While born in Darby, Montana in 1925 and mostly growing up in the Bitterroot Valley with her father Pete Seber while her father was working in the logging camps as a woodsman she later moved to her mothers house in Darby and attended school working the summers in the logging camps and for families in Darby until her graduation from high school.

In 1943 moving to Denver, Colorado to be with her mother Iren (Tufts) and Brother Glen Seber while working for Bell Telephone company as a telephone operator for years she met then married Robert J. Davis and moved to the Bay Area in California specifically to work in the Todd’s Shipyards during the war effort. Much later in life she was divorced from Robert and moved to Milwaukie, Oregon to marry Fenton Sweet where she worked at Tektronix’s in Beaverton, Oregon as a phone operator for 25 years more and retired in 1985 to take a once in a lifetime trip of many months to Alaska with 3 generations’ of her family along with her.

Mildred spent the last four years of her life mostly on her own doing things her way as she so much enjoyed, and during the last year was enjoying life at an assisted living facility in McMinnville and forever studding the Bible as a devoted Jehovah’s Witness of over 60 years.

Special thanks to all the staff at Vineyard Heights and Providence Hospice services who helped my mothers’ choice of going to sleep for the last time so painless and effortless. She will surly be resurrected at judgment time. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Jehovah's Witness Society.
