Obituary for Mildred R. Bentley

Mildred Bentley was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. In 1968 she moved to Chicago to be close to her daughter, in 1980 she moved in with her daughter, son-in-law and their two children. At that time she was a live-in companion, coming home only on the weekends.
She had been a caretaker all of her life. When her mother contracted liver cancer she cared for her until her mother's death. She was also a dutiful mother and grandmother. For many years she was a companion to those with physical problems. In fact in her eighties she proudly said, “I take care of old people.”
She considered her job to be a ministry as well. She often had the TV tuned to the 700 Club and other such programs. She was eager to share with her charges the fact that Jesus died for their sins and they could go to Heaven to be with Him if they put their trust in Him. She often reminded people the Bible says,…” whoever comes to me I will never cast out” (John 6:37b).
Mildred loved to read, especially mysteries and books on living the Christian life. She enjoyed novels such as the series of novel about the Amish life written by Beverly Lewis.
One of her favorite pastimes was needlework, both crocheting and knitting. Her daughter owns a pink sweater with intricate designs. Its tag reads Made Especially for you by Mildred Bentley.
Loving mother of Sheryl (Dean) Oder; cherished grandmother of Elizabeth and Michael Oder; dear sister of the late Edmund (Mary Ann) Robinson.
