Mrs. Mildred Lee Sumner Underwood, age 84 of Wartburg, met Jesus, the one she has longed to see for so long, on Thursday April 8, 2021. Mildred was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She lived her life sharing Jesus by teaching Sunday School for over 60 years, serving as a deacon’s wife, janitor of the church, and any other way that she was needed. She was a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Wartburg. Her joy came from serving Jesus and enjoying her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, but loved every child she ever met.

Loving parents: Clyde and Vadie Hamby Sumner.

And loving sister: Lillian Stubbs.

Ten great grandchildren: Eli, Bella, Ava, Makenna, Ian, Jaycee, and Jordan Underwood, Kayman and Mila Fritts, Brylee Blakney.

One sister and brother-in-law: Wanda and James Osborne.

Along with a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and many friends and loved ones.
