Mildred
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.

  1. Mom I miss you more than words can say. I miss my very best friend, you were the greatest mom ever I think about you all day, everyday. You tried so hard to stay with us and that meant alot. I know you are with God and that makes me happy but I still have a hard time daily not being with you. I miss you MOM. I love you with all my heart. Your Daughter Marcia

  2. Mom- You taught me to love okra and you accepted me into your family even before I was officially engaged to your daughter. You were always supportive and accepting of others and quick to help others no matter what the situation was. Your love of education inspired many to work toward academic excellence, including your three daughters, your grandchildren and me. I can only imagine that Heaven is a sweeter place now as the residents learn about your stern but kind approach to life, taste your delicious okra stew and listen with appreciation of how your were able to accomplish so much and to touch so many hearts. As I talk to more and more people who knew you, their faces light up with joy as they recall your thoughtfullness. Their kind words are comforting. Your memory will live on through your deeds. Love, Michael

  3. Dear Mom, I thank God everyday for having blessed me with a mom like you. You gave me a beautiful life, and you were my best friend. You taught me about love, life, and giving. Thank you for teaching me how to be a good person and how to always put God first in my life. You taught me courage,faith, hope, and love even while you were so sick and in pain. Mom I will miss you so much. But I know that you are in Heaven now with our Savior and that your body is no longer in pain. I will continue to honor your legacy Mom and forever you will be in my heart. I love you Mom. June.

  4. Mom I love you with all my heart. I will miss you dearly. You were my friend, teacher,and my advisor. You always inspired me and taught me to love and care for others. I thank God for choosing you to be my mother. You were the best. You will be in my heart and thoughts forever. Your Daughter Marcia

  5. I met the Grundy family over 30 years ago and have been friends with them ever since.One of the many memories that I will always cherish was going over their house on eleventh avenue in the summer time with a handful of the latest hit singles and dancing with the beautiful Grundy daughters in their livingroom while their mom would cook up a great lunch for us! You really didnt have to have any lamps in the house because her phenomenal personality would light up every room in the house!Now Heaven is brighter than its ever been because Mrs.Mildred Grundy has returned to be with God and all the Angels!

  6. Mom I just watched your video and I miss you just as much now as I did when I said good bye. You are happy now with God, rest and enjoy and I will see you when I get there. We all miss you.

  7. When I first met Aunt Mildred we would bump heads. Not soon after that I realized that she had my best interest at heart as she did for so many of us. In fact we took many trips together along with my wife and Uncle Melvin to Las Vegas. I have spent more than 34 years of my life with my wife (her other daughter) as a member of the family and I can truly say “What Mildred Grudy puts together stays together”.

  8. June, Marcia, & Melva, I am so happy to have been blessed with the opportunity to know your Mom. Mrs. Grundy had such a quick wit & a firey spirit! She & I would spend many afternoons standing in St. John’s parking lot talking and laughing. I enjoyed her so. What I really learned about her character, is what I came to learn from the faithfulness, courage and preseverance of June. I know that such qualities are learned in good families who love & are faithful to God. Although many years have past, I have always remembered Mrs. Grundy fondly. My condolences go out to all of the Grundy,Hudson,& Guillory families. Don’t mourn in sorrow but celebrate your Mom’s life & her going home to Jesus. No more pain, no more sorrow, no more suffering. She is free!! With much understanding & love, Mechelle

  9. Dear June and Michael, My empathy for the pain of losing your Mom. Although I did not know her, I can still rejoice in her life by knowing you. God’s mercy has relieved her suffering and his Grace will grant her peace and new life. My condolences always.

  10. Hello June, Marcia and Melva! Candy, the boys and myself are so sorry for the loss of aunt Mildred. We loved her very much. I will always remember her opening up her home to me while I finished my last semester at Dominguez Hills. I alway ate good, slept well, and enjoyed sitting on the porch talking with her and my cousins. We are praying that you find strength in this difficult time and I know that God’s grace will see you through. Lots of Love, Kyle, and family.

  14. Aunt Mildred – my other grandmother I will miss you so very much. If it had not been for you I would not have been here, as you were the one who put my parents together. I have been with you all of my life. You watched over me while my parents were at work since I was 9 months old. You were more than my Aunt Mildred, you were my other grandmother. You taught me many things especially not to choke when I drank water even though I still do at times. I would not have accomplished all that I have if you had not been a part of my life. I love you and I will miss you. Love, Sonja & the dogs – Louie (your gift to me) & Benjie

  15. Aunt Mildred You have always been there for me during the good times and bad. My mom & I have always had you to lean on. When we had no one else to turn to we had you. Your advice always came right on time even when I didn’t know I needed it. I will miss the many days that I spent on 11th Avenue. Your house was my other home. I love you and will miss you very much. Christa

  16. Mildred, You were like a cousin to me from the first day we met and i will never forget you nor your family. I enjoyed our little talks when i would run into you @ Bank of America.You will be truly missed. Love you, Helen & Rasheda

  19. “Aunt Mildred” – There are no words to express how I feel about you. I am blessed to have had you as a branch on my tree of life. You always knew what to say to me at just the right time. You encouraged me to reach for the stars. You were that strong branch of support when I needed it most and you were an angel sent by god. You pointed me in the right direction when I wasn’t sure which way to go. You always knew what to say to cheer me up when I needed it. I will always appreciate all of the kindness and warm thoughts you sent my way. You gave me the sisters (June, Marcia, & Melva)that I didn’t have. You put something together that has lasted for more than 33 years – my husband – Mac. Love – Your other daughter
