Mildred Louise Gaines Hart

September 25, 1933 — March 9, 2023

Siler City

 

Mildred Hart, 89, of Siler City, passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 9, 2023.

Mildred was born September 25, 1933, to parents Charlie and Thelma Gaines.

She married her sweetheart, Clyde “Buck” Hart on November 1, 1952. They went on to have two children; Cindy and Neal.

Mildred was one of the first employees hired during the grand opening of the Siler City Walmart and enjoyed answering the phones and helping customers in the ladies department until her retirement at the age of 82. Mildred was a member of Gaines Grove Primitive Baptist Church, loved attending local church services with her sisters. She also enjoyed reading suspense and romance novels, and vacationing with her family.

Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were the light of her life. She always took care of them, had a freezer full of Schwan’s ice cream for weekend sleepovers, and loved cheering on the sidelines of their soccer games and dance recitals. She loved them all dearly, but everyone knew that Christy was her baby.

She is survived by her daughter, Cindy Dixon (Danny); son, Neal Hart (Shelia Joyner); grandchildren, Christy Sloan (Bobby), Stephanie Tilton (Jared), Jasmine Lauer (Terry) and Sammy Hart; great-grandchildren, Ambur Phillips, AJ Phillips, Brayden Tilton, Cora Tilton, and Hartlee Lauer; great-great grandson, Tanner Phillips; sisters, Blanche Birchett and Virginia Birchett; sister-in-law Carolyn Gaines.

Mildred is preceded in death by her husband, Clyde “Buck” Hart; father, Charlie Gaines; mother, Thelma Gaines; stepfather, Addison Stutts; sisters, Mary Stutts, Erma Truelove, and Alice Frazier; and brothers, Ralph Gaines and Cullum Stutts.

A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, March 14, 2023 at Smith and Buckner Funeral Home Chapel at 2:00 pm. Family will receive friends prior to the funeral from 1:00 – 2:00. The burial will take place at Gaines Family Cemetery.
