    My first job as a teenager was working for the outpatient lab on Cherry Street (for my father, Joseph Mann, MD), and that is where I met Milda. She took a very kind interest in me, and our friendship has lasted into my adult life. We had continued to exchange christmas cards until the last few years when I have moved to often, and we lost touch. My sincere sympathy to her family. She will be missed but fondly remembered.

    I will always have fond memories of Milda. We met after she retired the first time and instantly became friends even though I was 35 years younger then her. She was the kindest most caring person I have ever met.

    I have fond memories when I remember Milda. She was my mentor in the Blood Bank at Butterworth Hospital when I worked the 2nd shift. She had my family over to her wonderful home on Silver Lake and taught me how to make some Latvian appetizers. We stayed in touch until she moved to Tennessee but she will always be remembered for her spunkiest, her hard working ethics, and for taking cold dips in the lake even into October.

    Dear Benita and Family,
    My name is Lindy Tanis (maiden name Plate) My parents Janis and Velga were good friends with Mrs. Cuncins, and so I was fortunate enough to get to know her a little bit too. I just wanted to let you know that I thought of her fondly and she always made me laugh. She just had such an energy about her. The last time I saw her was at Skaidrite’s funeral. Mrs. Cuncins said that she couldn’t see very well, but that she knew and could sense who I was. She was even making light of things with me then. I thought she was a wonderful lady with a unique character. Many years ago, she chidded me alot about marrying one of her beloved grandsons. She loved those boys alot. I just wanted you to know that she touched my heart in my life. I feel priviledged to have known her.
    With my sympathies to you and your families.
    Lindy Tanis

      Linda,
      Thank You for commenting about Milda (we called her Oni). I think of her and my Grandfather often and miss them terribly. She taught us a lot and was never shy on love. Thank you for the kind words.

      Milda’s Grandson,

      Dan Reagan
