Mildred Leona Craig, (Wells), was born at Columbia Hospital in Washington, D.C. on May 19, 1922, the only child of the union of Royce Ephraim and Bessie Beatrice (Freeman) Wells.\n \n\n She departed this life on December 30, 2015 at Aria Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the ripe old age of ninety- three. Her husband, Linwood, preceded her in death.\n \n\n Mildred was a product of the Trappe and Easton public school systems before she attended Delaware State College to study Home Economics.\n \n\n She met the love of her life, Linwood Lee Craig, when she moved to Washington, D.C. to seek employment. They united in marriage in that same city on June 23, 1943 and later moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to raise their family. She was an excellent homemaker who cared for her husband and her mother-in-law, while raising their four children in a Christian household. She was employed by the Philadelphia School System and worked at both the Alain Locke and the Harrity Elementary Schools.\n \n\n An accomplished seamstress, she made beautiful prom gowns and a college wardrobe for one daughter while passing the love of sewing, and cooking on to the other daughter. Mildred enjoyed cooking, (which she did every day), and baking for her family, and in her spare time she enjoyed completing crossword puzzles, painting her nails, and reading novels; especially the romantic kind.\n \n\n Mildred was an active member of the Sherwood Epiphany Episcopal Church where the family attended services each Sunday. She created a club for the neighborhood teens where she taught them how to crochet, knit, and other sewing skills. Mom joined the PTA of each of her children’s schools and baked many, many cupcakes! She served as a Girl Scout Leader and was the Cookie Chairman for many years.\n \n\n In 1978, the couple moved back to Trappe to care for her mother and settle into retired life. They became faithful members of Scott’s United Methodist where they sang for the Lord. She was a member of Scott’s Senior Choir and the Jackson Jubilee Singers until they moved to Philadelphia to be closer to their children. Her love of teaching motivated her to become a classroom assistant in the White Marsh School System. The “Three Ms”, Mildred, Miriam, and Malinda, were the three cousins who began the Wells Family Reunion tradition held here on the Eastern Shore.\n \n\n Mildred is preceded in death by her husband, Linwood, Senior and her eldest son, Linwood, Junior. She leaves to mourn her death; two daughters, Carla Stucky and Robin Wells, one son, Dana Gordon; two son-in-laws, William Stucky and Roland Wells, Senior; one daughter-in-law, Kim Craig; ten grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends who love her dearly.
