Graveyard Service of Mildred Middleton


The graveside service will be at Danville Memorial Gardens on Saturday at 11:30 am. For out of town who will be coming, the directions are:
From Richmond:
Go on KY 52.  As you enter Danville, turn left on Stanford Road (4 stop road) and keep on until another stop. Turn left.  Continue on 150/Stanford Road, heading towards Stanford. You should see a church, Willow Grove Baptist — the cemetery is past it  on the right. It  has the two water fountains, which is easily noticeable.
From Danville–
From KSD–Turn on Martin Luther King BLVD –then turn a slight right on Stanford AVE/US 150. Keep on …then turn left on US 150/Stanford heading to Stanford.
You should see a church building (Willow grove) and the cemetery is past the church. It has two fountains with the entrance on the right.
Hope it helps!
The Deaf Community will host a fellowship potluck in memory of our dear Mildred after the service. It will be held at Grow Hall,  at KSD, where she spent a huge portion of her life as a student and housemother.  You are encouraged to bring a side dish, drink, and/or dessert.  Someone will be there at  Grow Hall to accept donations of food and drinks before the service, if you wish to drop by before the service at Danville Memorial Gardens.

Here’s why you should be a CSDVRS Interpreter.

“I work for CSDVRS because we put our customers first!  We want our customers to keep coming back and we show them that through our positive attitudes!  Our desire to meet the needs of the deaf community puts us above the rest!”, is actually from Sue De Leon Rice, a CSDVRS interpreter.
