GREENVILLE — Mildred “Millie” Mae Haworth, age 100, of Greenville, Ohio, passed away at 8:45 p.m., Saturday, July 18, 2020, at the Brethren Retirement Community in Greenville.
Born in Washington Township, Darke County, Ohio, July 29, 1919, she was the second of three children to the late E. Lowell and Virgel “Marie” (Hamilton) Niswonger.

Mildred was a lifelong member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Greenville, and served on the Altar Guild Committee for over 60 years. She was a member of the Delta Omicron Chapter of the Sigma Alpha Sorority. Mildred loved playing basketball in her younger years, and still continued to watch basketball games throughout the rest of her life. She enjoyed playing with her grandchildren and spending time with family. On any given day you could find her walking all over town. She walked everywhere!
