Mildred M. Neumann, 96, was called into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, November 5, 2014, at Rennes Health and Rehab Center. She was born on the family farm in the Town of Greenville on July 14, 1918, the daughter of the late Dexter and Clara (Korth) Maas.
Mildred graduated from Appleton High School in 1936 and then from Bushey's Business College. She worked at Aid Association for Lutheran for several years. The family were members of Mount Olive Ev.
