Mildred Mary Grundy
May 17, 1929 - September 26, 2007
Mildred Mary Crisp was born on May 17, 1929 in Okmulgee, Oklahoma to Rosa and Oddie Crisp.
She was a twin to her brother Claude, and the thirteenth of fifteen children. Mildred attended Catholic school from the elementary level through high school, where she attended Uganda Martyrs. She loved God and taught her children that same love.
She moved to California in 1955 where she met her husband, Melvin, and they were later married. Mildred was a very devoted wife and mother, always with a generous spirit of giving. She always wanted to help and serve others. She loved to cook for family and friends; serving her pots of gumbo, okra and rice, greens, and cornbread.
She deeply loved her five grandchildren. Even when she was not feeling well, she always managed hugs and kisses for the kids whenever they were around.
As time passed, her many illnesses, particularly Lupus and the dialysis treatments, began to take toll on her body. These were the times that her faith in the Lord gave her strength and courage during her difficult illness.
She is survived by her daughters, June (Michael) Hudson, Marcia Patin, Melva Grundy; step-son, Ronald Jones; her five grandchildren, Michael and April Hudson, Mary Starks, Charlie and Chelsie Samuel; and her sister, Dorothy Bruner.
She leaves to cherish her memory: a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and dear friends.
The family of Mildred Grundy would like to thank you for your many acts of kindness shown to us during our bereavement. Your thoughtfulness is deeply appreciated and will always be remembered.
