Mildred A. “Mid” Whitmoyer
Mildred A. “Mid” Whitmoyer, 101, of Muncy Valley, completed her long journey in life on Tuesday, March 17, 2009, at Valley View Nursing Center.
Born February 26, 1908, at Longbrook (near Nordmont), she was a daughter of the late James and Nora Little Laird. Her husband of 42 years, Albert M. “Hub” Whitmoyer, preceded her in death on January 14, 1979.
Mid enjoyed hunting and was born to fish. Her last fishing trip was with the Valley View residents, the fall preceding her 100th birthday, to Rose Valley Lake. She loved gardening and baking homemade goodies, especially pies, cookies and breads.
Mid was always ready to lend a helping hand to everyone. She had a kindness and compassion for others and possessed a unique brand of wit. Her sense of humor and loving personality will always hold a special place in her family’s hearts and memories and she will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

In addition to her parents and husband, Mid was preceded in death by a son, Benjamin Trexler; two daughter-in-laws, Phyllis Buck and Jean Ott; and three sisters.
