Mildred S. Kirkpatrick

April 19, 1917 ~ July 8, 2013

Mildred Dorothy Simmons Kirkpatrick, 96, died quietly in the evening of July 8, 2013, with her daughter-in-law by her side. She was born on April 19, 1917, in Spokane, WA, the daughter of George Herbert and Mamie Dunker Simmons, and had two sisters, Audrey Lois (Scollard) and Norma Marie Simmons, and one brother, Harold Edward Simmons (Sullivan).

Mildred was a woman of strength and determination, who, after being orphaned at age 15, went on to earn her Bachelor’s of Arts Degree (1939) at Whitworth College and a Teaching Certificate and Bachelor’s Degree in Education (1940) from Washington State College. In 1975, she earned a Master’s Degree in Education from Georgia College in Milledgeville, GA. She strove for teaching excellence throughout her teaching career, which included teaching high school English and counseling in Wilson Creek High School, Wenatchee High School, and in the Macon, Georgia schools.

In 1941, Mildred married Hugh C. Kirkpatrick, also from Spokane, WA. They had three children, Bonnie L. Kirkpatrick, Brian T. Kirkpatrick, and Georgene K. Jacobs. She was a much loved Grandma to seven, four granddaughters and three grandsons; and Great-Grandma to eight, five boys and three girls. She also leaves four loved nieces and two nephews.

During her life, Mildred was drawn to help others, including children who were orphaned as she was. She loved drawing and painting, which she took up very successfully in her later years. She was active in the Episcopal Church, and had attended St. Andrew’s in Spokane, St. Luke’s in Wenatchee, and St. Francis’ in Mill Creek.

Her family is planning a Private Memorial.
