Mildred Anne (Walker) Lohec
August 20, 1919 – June 3, 2009
Mildred Anne Lohec, beloved mother and grandmother, went home to be with her Savior on June 3rd, 2009.
She was born in Perry, Oklahoma on August 20, 1919. After graduation from business school, she and a friend went to Galveston, Texas on vacation, where she met her future husband, Harrold Phillips. She spent most of her adult life in the Texas City/Galveston area. Here, she survived her husband’s death, when their son Larry was just 3, and later married Sante Fe resident, Joseph Lohec, and had her second son, Jay. In 1992, she moved to Pearland to be near Larry and his family.
She was a long time member of the First Presbyterian church of Texas City, but quickly became a treasured member of Cokesbury United Methodist Church. Here she was part of the “Friendly Folks” seniors group, the UMW, the Good News Sunday School class and the Red Hat society. She was the kind of Christian we all aspire to be – loving and kind, and always seeing the best in everyone. We know God is happy to have her home, but we will miss her pure loving, spirit.
