---- — Mildred A. Forgey

GALVESTON — Mildred A. (Thieke) Forgey, 77, Galveston, passed away at 8:15 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013, after a life of much physical pain and many medical trials.

Though her body was weak and old before its time, her mind was sharp and she was always there whenever anyone needed a shoulder to cry on or someone to just support them in times of need. You could always go to the Forgey house to see her and know she would be there and ready to listen.
