Mildred Louise Juett, 93, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, May 25. She was surrounded by her daughters. Mildred Juett had been lovingly known as “Mama Mildred” by hundreds of area children that she cared for in her childcare center from 1954 until 1989. She loved caring for the children of young couples, many of whom were attending Texas A&M. She believed that she had lived a very fulfilled and happy life because of the number of children that she had the joy of loving.
Mildred Louise Carr was born to Grayson D. and Jessie Maud Carr on March 5, 1920 in Hannibal, Missouri. She was married to John William Juett on May 12, 1939. John and Mildred and their children were transferred by International Shoe Company to Bryan, Texas in 1953. They loved making their home in the Bryan/College Station area and became avid Aggie fans. Mrs. Juett was preceded in death by her husband, parents, three brothers, a sister and her great-granddaughter Melody Pinkston.
She is survived by her daughters, Sharon Threadgill and husband, Jack; Sherrill Janene Juett, both of Bryan, Micky McClure and husband, Mike of College Station, and by her son John Hugh Juett and wife, Carol of Houston, TX.
