July 30, 1938 – Sept. 1, 2022
Mildred Louise Stinson Brumfield, 84, of Tylertown, died Sept. 1, 2022, at Billdora Senior Care in Tylertown. She was born July 30, 1938, in Tylertown, to the late Ottis Lampton Stinson and Sylvia Agnes Lee Stinson.
Services were Sept. 3, 2022, at Dexter Pentecostal Church with Rev. Jerry Terrell officiating, interment at Rushing Cemetery.
Mrs. Brumfield was a licensed cosmetologist for much of her life and thoroughly enjoyed ‘fixing hair’. She was employed by Haspel Brothers for many years, and then owned and operated a downtown convenience store, BSL, with her husband Sherman, where she came to know many Walthall Countians and made some friends that she kept up with through the years. ‘Mrs. Mildred’ was known by many as a sassy lady with a quick wit and as one who could be counted on to ‘tell it like it is’!
In her later years, Mildred enjoyed working as a security guard employed by Securitas. When she finally retired completely, she enjoyed cooking her specialties of red beans and rice with all the trimmings and her family’s favorite vegetable beef soup. Mildred studied interior design and enjoyed decorating her home – she will be missed by QVC, Amazon, and her UPS delivery drivers.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Sherman W. Brumfield; infant son, Terry Austin Martin; parents, Ottis and Sylvia Stinson; and sister, Georgie Merle Stinson Harper.
