Mildred Berry, 96, of Raymond sadly left us on March 11th. Mildred was born Oct 4, 1926 in Scottsbluff NE to Fred and Marie Graff. Soon after, her family moved to Torrington WY then finally settled in the Yakima Valley. While working on a hop farm she met the love of her life, Raymond Berry. They were married for 72 years. They raised their family of three children in Harrah WA. Then due to his job, they moved to Raymond in 1967.
Mildred worked for Coast Seafoods shucking oysters for 20 years. She enjoyed visiting friends at Pace Sr Center and people around the community. She loved to read, watch old westerns and was an avid Seahawks and Mariner fan. She took great pride in winning blue ribbons at the Pacific Co Fair for the afghans and doilies she crocheted.
She is survived by her children: Diana White (Jesse), Gail Berry (Cindy) and Don Berry (Sunday) along with many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her brother Dick also survives. Preceding her in death was her husband Ray, sister Betty Lupino and brother Albert Graff.
Mildred’s family would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to Holly Care Homes, who loved and cared for her during the last of her life. She has requested no service.
