Mildred Eleanor Ward

Mildred Eleanor Ward, most recently of Spotsylvania County, passed away Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014, at the age of 93.

She was born in Arlington and lived there for 83 years before moving to Spotsylvania in August 2004.

She worked as a bookkeeper, secretary and treasurer in the financial area of savings and loan associations. She retired at age 70 and devoted her energies to her family and friends.

Eleanor really enjoyed the friendships she cultivated in the business world and through her strong attachments to the church.

She is survived by her son, Michael and his wife, Cindy, of Stafford County; and two granddaughters, Meredith and Laura.

A graveside service will be held at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, at Columbia Gardens Cemetery in Arlington. She always dreamed of returning home to Arlington County.

We know she was welcomed to eternal peace by her husband, Al, and family members who had preceded her on this journey.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Make-a-Wish Foundation of Greater Virginia, 2810 N. Parham Road, Richmond, VA 23294.
