Sister Mildred Mann, was truly, one of a kind. She was famous for her reference to "The Woodshed", for anyone, younger than her,calling her by her first name.She will always be remembered for her love for The Truth, and her love of God's word. She had a way of,"telling it like it is", I'll really miss that. She always tried to be encouraging to others as well. I personally look forward to welcoming her "back", in God's New World.

Rest in peace my dear sister!
