Mildred Pauline Alcock Harper
On August 4, 2019, Mildred Pauline Alcock Harper, quietly slipped from this life surrounded by family members and was reunited with her eternal sweetheart Milo Warren Harper. She was born March 20, 1932, to Connie Ray Alcock and Ellen Rouse. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Milo Warren Harper, two brothers, Ray Nelson and Steve Alcock, two sons-in-law Jesse Wethington (Patti) and Leamon Carlyle (Wendy), and a grandson Dylan Isaac Hallenberger. She leaves behind her sister, Melba Ingles, 10 loving and devoted children Jerry (Schuyler), Donald (Tandra), Vickie (Bruce Maslin II), Patti, Pennie (Daniel Smith), Barry (Cindi), Wendy, Valerie (Craig Wright II), Kirby (Lisa), and Gena (Michael Hallenberger II). She will be missed and fondly remembered by her 38 grandchildren, 46 great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mildred openly lived her life to reflect her testimony of her Savior, Jesus Christ, and never let an opportunity pass without sharing her beliefs with others. She treasured the time she was able to spend working in the temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and was well known for her ability to write poems for special family events. Her life was centered on raising her family and serving others. Her home cooking was unmatched as she added this and that and never wrote it down. She could often be found challenging family and friends to a game of Scrabble, Uno, Chicken Foot, or a word search. Birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays did not go by without a card being received from her. She loved driving family and visitors around the family farm on her golf cart and teaching her grandkids little ditties. All who have crossed her path have been blessed by their encounter and have been all the better for it.
Services for “Mama”, “Grandma”, “Greatma” Mildred will be held Thursday, August 8, 2019, at the Albertson Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints with the visitation at 10AM, funeral service at 11AM, and burial at the Milo and Mildred Harper Family Cemetery immediately following.
