Mildred Bah, 86

Mildred Lucille Bah, 86, Evansville, died peacefully at Loving Care Homes in Allen, Texas, on March 10, 2009.

Mildred and her twin brother James were born to Alma and Ragnar Anderson of rural Evansville on April 12, 1922. Her early education was at country school District 86, where she was reported to be the fastest runner. Later she attended and graduated from Evansville High School. Subsequently she attended and graduated from Minneapolis Business College.

During World War II Mildred worked in an office at a Boeing aircraft plant in Wichita, Kansas. After the war she returned to Evansville and on January 21, 1946, married Glenn Bah. They settled in Evansville and raised three children. In 1951 Mildred started working at the Farmers State Bank (now the First Security Bank), rising to the position of head cashier. She worked at the bank until her retirement in 1987.

Mildred was a lifelong member of Calvary Covenant Church of Evansville. She served in various positions at the church including many years as the church treasurer. After her retirement from the bank and the death of her husband, Mildred became an avid quilter, spending many hours designing and making quilts for family, friends and charities. She was a hard worker who loved God, her family and her church. In 2005, she moved to Texas to be near her two sons. She very much enjoyed the milder, winter weather but missed her many Minnesota friends.

Mildred was preceded in death by her parents, Ragnar and Alma Anderson; husband of 42 years, Glenn; and brothers, Harold, James and Charles.

She is survived by her daughter, Carlyn (Fred) Warn; sons, Michael (Muriel) and Douglas (Lisa); grandchildren, Tamara Warn (Bradley Suess), Andrew (Elizabeth), Aileen Elizabeth, Brian, Lauren and Kirsten; and great-grandchild, Jared Warn-Seuss.
