She was born on April 18, 1924, in Frankfort, the daughter of Lewis and Marion (Thompson) Kingsbury Sr. In her earlier years she worked in the shoe factories in Belfast, and went on to cook for the Deborah Lincoln House and the jail where she became a deputy sheriff.

Mildred also had a love for her animal friends of the past, including Sheba, Trixie, Bridgett and Sunny. She also liked spending time doing puzzles. She will be remembered by her friends at Penobscot Nursing Home, where she recently resided, for her love of ice cream and Snickers bars.
