After finally meeting Jim Wilbourn the other day, I then found this piece from 6/11/04 and thought it was worth re-running. –tlp-

I am very saddened to forward this email from Mildred Taylor Wilbourn's family that Mildred passed away on Wed. June 9, 2004 at 10:35 p.m.

Mildred was a member of the SHS 1954 Graduating Class and was very active in the reunions and was close friends of several classmates within the Central AR region as well as elsewhere in the country. We will miss a great classmate and community leader.

After her heroic battle with cancer for several years, Mildred Wilbourn passed away on Wednesday, June 9th at 10:35PM.

We’d been aware for some weeks that Milly was, literally, waging the battle of her life. When we started to make a comment here on the site, though, one of her many friends stopped us, saying that, while Mildred was very active in her community, she was essentially a quite private person, and would be the last gal in the world to want anything resembling pity, so we kept the information to ourselves.

I am assured that she will be very, very missed here on earth – and is probably already planning another reunion for us.
