Mildred Shiplet
Mildred Shiplet (known also as Granny or Millie) passed away on January 11, 2009. Millie touched the lives and hearts of many with her "You Get From Giving" approach to life.
She was born on October 22, 1926 to Jerry and Edith Flinn in Cooperton, OK. Millie grew up on farms in S.W. Oklahoma and graduated from Vinson High School. Shortly after marrying Doyal Shiplet, they moved to the Bakersfield area of California. Three years later, they returned to their "Okie" roots.

For 17 years, Millie was a dedicated stay at home mom raising her two children. Millie, who was a natural caregiver, eventually took a job that spanned 30 years with Baptist Hospital serving as a Nurses Aid, Unit Clerk and Monitor Technician. She took pride in her work and was loved and respected by her patients, co-workers, and hospital staff. Millie was preceded in death by her parents, brother Ed Flinn, and husband Doyal. She is survived by her daughter Letha Blevins of Edmond son and daughter-in-law Kent and Sue Shiplet of Edmond her cherished grandchildren, Sean Shiplet, Jennifer Muir, and Matt Parisi great grandchildren, Kaylee Shiplet, Macy and Cole Muir and numerous nieces and nephews. We appreciate the many family, friends, and former co-workers who stayed with Millie during her time in Hospice.

Special thanks to Ellie and Whiz Flinn, Joan Rogers, and Jerry Flinn for their dedicated care giving. Memorial donations may be made to Stonegate Presbyterian Church (17101 N. Western, Edmond, OK 73003). Services will be held at Matthews Funeral Home (601 S. Kelly, Edmond) at 2:00 PM Wednesday January 14, 2009, followed by burial at Arlington Memory Gardens cemetery. Services are under the direction of the Matthews Funeral Home, Edmond, OK
