Mildred Ruth Nugent Obituary

Mildred Ruth Nugent (Milly) was born in NYC on August 29, 1927 to Anna and John Cordes. After the death of her mother, she and her sister Edythe were raised by their maternal grandparents Anna and John Freeburn. Mildred was educated in NYC public schools and worked for the NY Telephone Company. She married Samuel Nugent on October 12, 1947. They raised their family in the Bronx before moving to Yorktown, and devoted themselves to each other and their four children. Some favorite activities involved the family car, whether it was Sunday drives or cross country trips visiting National Parks and attractions. Mildred was a homemaker and mother, and active in community affairs including PTA and Scouting. She returned to work as a teacher aide in the Bronx and worked as family liaison in a Head Start program. After moving to Yorktown, Mildred worked as a teacher aide in Yorktown schools where she was active in the teacher aides union. She ended her working career at Northern Westchester Putnam BOCES in the payroll department. After her husband Sam passed and she retired, Mildred moved to Brewster. She loved to spend time with family and friends, travel and learn, and work tirelessly for important causes related to the environment and preserving Open Space. She met and got to know her half sister Ann Cordes and family. Mildred lived her life with love and humor, kindness and generosity, passion and persistence, and with wisdom and common sense. Mildred passed away on April 30, 2021. She was predeceased by her husband and sister. She is survived by her children Linda (Fred Newman), Margaret, William (Alida), and John (Erin) and her grandchildren John (Caitlin), Alida (Max Totilo), Sam and Abby, and Sam Newman. Mildred loved and was loved in return by her family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and colleagues, and most especially by those blessed to call her Mom and YaYa. She will be missed by all, while living on in our hearts. Donations in Mildreds memory may be made to Open Space Institute NY or Habitat For Humanity Private Friday, May 7, 2021
