Sister Mildred Kelly was one of the top members a pastor could have. She was one of the best for me. She didn't work on a secular job, but she worked for the church advancement and God. If something needed to be done, she, and her sister were front in line to do their part. In revival? She would bring groceries, as if for herself. While we were in a building new church, even though she had a child with a handicap to care for. she raised thousands in money among the merchants. If you were ill, she was there to help. Sister Mildred will always be remembered for the good deeds she did, but most of all, for the way she served her Dod.
