Mildred M. Winger, age 95 and formerly of Hudson, WI and known affectionately as “Mid” or “Millie”, died on Thursday, September 22, 2016. Millie was born August 13, 1921 in River Falls, WI to parents Leo and Mabel (nee Dean) Armbruster. She attended schools in the River Falls area, but became a city girl when she moved to Minneapolis, where she would live for many years. Mildred retired from Northwestern Bell after 34 years, and then went to work at Control Data for another 10 years.
After moving to Hudson in 1986, and even in retirement, Millie kept busy working. She enjoyed working, not to mention the company of others. She particularly enjoyed the years she spent working at the Binz Refectory at the University of St. Thomas. Millie also enjoyed shopping, dressing and looking fashionable, and keeping her house and her hair “just so”. She was a neat lady who had a smile for everyone. She will be missed dearly by those who knew and loved her.
Mildred is survived by her daughter, Phyllis (Barry) Young Womack; grandchildren, Lora (Denise) Young, and Grant (Allison) Young; great-grandchildren, Nicholas, Brady, and Alexandra; siblings, Delphine Johnson, Elaine (Delbert) Johnson, Georgine (John) Moelter, LeRoy (Donna) Armbruster, Gerald Armbruster, Sharon (Robert) Bruegger, and Dean Armbruster; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Leo and Mabel Armbruster; sister, Mabel Frances; and brother-in-law, Paul Johnson.
Funeral Celebration of Life services are planned for 2:00pm on Friday, September 30, 2016 at the O’Connell Family Funeral Home, 520 11th Street S. in Hudson WI, with Rev. Fr. Jerry Harris officiating. Visitation will be held 1 hour prior to services.
