Mildred A. Enright, 97

Mildred Anna Tiedemann was born Oct. 29, 1922, in rural Mower County, Minnesota, to Frederick and Martha (Gerasch) Tiedemann. She graduated from Elkton High School. On Sept. 22, 1946, Milly was united in marriage to Clarence Enright at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Dexter, Minnesota. Milly worked at Hormel Foods for many years. The couple was very active in their early years, going fishing up north and holding fish fries, bowling, snowmobiling, and they loved to go dancing. For many years they would get in the car and drive, visiting many states. Life changed for Milly and Clarence when he suffered a stroke in 1986. Milly then took on the role of caregiver, but continued to enjoy embroidering and gardening, especially flowers; they were her specialty. Milly loved shoes and wore high heels into her early 90s. She also had a sweet tooth.

Survivors include her many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Frederick and Martha Tiedemann; husband, Clarence Enright; and two sisters and two brothers, Alice (Bill) Marks, Lawrence (Margaret) Tiedemann, Chester (Pam) Tiedemann, Bernice (Ray) Kraft.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2019, at St. Peters Evangelical Lutheran Church in rural Austin. Visitation will take place one hour prior to the service on Tuesday at the church. Interment will be in Oakwood Cemetery in Austin.
