She died peacefully April 18, 2018, at South View Living Center in Gibbon.
Her life was defined by faith, service, and love. She was a faithful Catholic, a loving wife and mother, and a talented cook, baker, gardener, and homemaker. She volunteered at the local food shelf and the American Red Cross Bloodmobile. Millie was an astute card-player, and was a member of a number of long-standing bridge and 500 clubs in Tracy.
Mildred is lovingly remembered by children Rose Blesener (Bill Daly) of St. Cloud; Paul (Kathy) Blesener of Cottage Grove; Charlie (Kathleen) Blesener of Elk River; Joanne (Tom) McCabe of Madelia; Anita (John) Shikoski of New Ulm; 13 grandchildren; and 8 great-grandchildren.
Blessed be her memory
