Mildred Spencer Crocker, 77, passed away at her home in Calhoun City on May 3, 2020. Born July 24, 1942, in Missouri, she was the daughter of the late Oren Spencer and the late Lillian Farris Spencer. She was a graduate of Vardaman High School, and continued her education at Northwest Community College. She was a faithful member of Calhoun City First Baptist Church, and loved her church and her church family dearly. On September 22, 1962, she married the love of her life, Wayne Crocker, and they have spent 57 wonderful years together, and were blessed with three daughters. Family meant everything to Mildred, and she loved seeing everyone as often as possible. She loved cooking for her family and spending precious time with her grandchildren and great-granddaughter. She was not only a great mother, she also made time to work for their family business as Co-Owner and Bookkeeper for Crocker’s Pharmacy in Calhoun City for many years. A devoted wife, loving mother, and great sister, Mildred was a blessing to her family, and they will cherish her memory in their hearts forever.
