Mildred received Christ at an early age at Little Zion Baptist Church in Gonzales County, Texas. In 1963 she was united in holy matrimony to Melvin Sims of Aberdeen, Mississippi. Out of that union was born Karen Sims Carter of Austin, Texas and Melvin Dean Sims of San Antonio, Texas.
Mildred loved to cook and garden. She traveled as often as possible. Her favorite times were spent with her relatives, as she was a very family oriented woman of God. She united with Coliseum Park Baptist Church in 1974 under Pastor Lemuel Smith, where she served as an Usher and in the Culinary Ministry. In 1988, she moved her membership to Maranatha Bible Church, founded by Pastor Rander E. Draper, Sr. where she faithfully served in the Choir and Culinary Ministry also.
