Mildred F. Hall, 96, of Somerville, N.J., and Punta Gorda, Fla., passed away Monday, Nov. 4, 2013, in Punta Gorda.
She was a lifelong resident of Somerville, until she moved to Punta Gorda to live with her daughter. Mildred graduated from Somerville High School and North Hudson Hospital School of Nursing in New Jersey. She retired from Somerset Hospital in Somerville. Mildred went on to marry and have two daughters, and spent time with her family and friends.
She was a past High Priestess of the Ladies Oriental Shrine, past Matron of the Eastern Star, and a member of the Daughters of the Nile. Mildred lived for her family; she was devoted to her daughters, her grandchildren and her great-great-grandchildren; she had a unique ability to make each one feel special in her own way. Far beyond being an amazing woman, Mildred can be described as fiercely independent, strong, humorous, thoughtful and selfless, a true role model and a one-of-a-kind person. She touched many lives, and will be missed and remembered in spirit.
Mildred is survived by her two daughters, Mildred S. Stepp of Punta Gorda, and Ellen Librizzi of Bridgewater, N.J.; grandchildren, Edward Sherkus, Adam Sherkus and Trista Zimmerman of Punta Gorda, and Brett Limone, Ryan Librizzi and Briyon Librizzi of Bridgewater; 13 great-grandchildren; and four great-great-grandchildren.
Visitation is set for 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, at Kays-Ponger & Uselton Funeral Home, 635 E. Marion Ave., Punta Gorda, FL 33950. Services and burial will be in Bridgewater at a later date. Please visit the online tribute for Mildred F. Hall at www.kays-ponger.com to sign the guest book and offer condolences.
