Mildred H. ShulerMildred H. Shuler, of Alpine, unexpectedly passed away at Strong Memorial Hospital on July 10, 2010, at the age of 86.

 

Milly was born July 28, 1923 in Clarksville, Pennsylvania to the late James and Alice (Horner) McGrane. She worked at Remington Rand for 12 years before staying at home on the farm to raise her two daughters.

 

Milly was a member of the Odessa American Legion Ladies Auxiliary and the Mecklenburg Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary. She loved playing cards but especially the friendships of the women she held so dear.  Milly loved a gathering and was often the life of the party.   Her stories, jokes, and love of food is how she will be remembered best.

 

In addition to her parents, Milly was preceded in death by one brother, Ralph McGrane; and four sisters, Alice McGrane, Margaret Manburg, Clara Chapman, and Anna Searles. She is survived by her husband of 61 years, John Shuler; and two daughters, Janice (Ryan) Oshiro of Kauai, Hawaii and Colleen (Evan) Shuler-Eisenberg.

 

A celebration of Milly’s life will be announced at a later date.  Memorial contributions may be made in her honor to the Mecklenburg Volunteer Fire Department, PO Box 108, Mecklenburg, NY 14863.  We thank them for their service and compassion in our parents time of need.
