Mildred was born on June 15th, 1928 in Normal, Illinois to Altha and Mark Thompson. Mildred lived her early life on the family farm with her parents and her siblings; Don, Helen, Mary and David.

She spent her college years at ISU and was a member of the sorority Sigma Ki. She kept in touch with her sorority sisters throughout her life. She was active in the sorority and enjoyed the yearly secret sister events they had.

She married her husband Harold Ferguson in a ceremony at Normal First United Methodist Church. They had a happy loving marriage until his passing in 2020. Family meant a lot to Mildred; besides her husband and two children she had many nieces and nephews she adored.

Both Mildred and Harold loved their family home that was located on a quiet corner on Maplewood Drive. They raised their children there and created many wonderful memories. Later in life they retired to Florida to be with family and enjoy the warmer weather. Mildred left a lasting impact on her family and the lives she touched through teaching. She will be dearly missed.

Say not in grief that she is no more but say in thankfulness that she was. A death is not the extinguishing of a light but the putting out of the lamp because the dawn has come.” -Rabindranath Tagore
