Mildred Ailsworth

December 9, 1929 — February 28, 2022

It is with great sadness that the family of Mildred Ward Ailsworth, 92, formerly of Deltaville, Va., and Virginia Beach, Va. announce her passing on December 20, 2021 in a Virginia Beach hospital. She was preceded in death by her parents William Henry Ward and Virginia Harrow Ward, her husband Alfred Ailsworth, and her siblings James Henry Ward, Millard Donald Ward, and Almedia Ward Dozier. She is survived by her five children Alfred (Pam) Ailsworth Jr., Stephanie (Terry) Greenquist, Ellen Ailsworth, Millicent (Larry) Wilson, and William Ailsworth. She is also survived by seven grandchildren: Brooke Ailsworth (Billy) Bertrand, Justin Ailsworth, Dylan (Aly) Greenquist, Taylor (Brittany) Greenquist, Avery Greenquist (David) Walsh, Jack Lord, Benjamin Wilson and five great grandchildren; Raylan and River Bertrand, John Lord V, Isla Greenquist, Elsie Greenquist and David Walsh III. She was a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

Throughout her life, Mildred’s priorities included the raising and educating of her five children. The church remained central in her life, and her closest friends were those in a women’s bible study group that met for many years. She nurtured and treasured each one of those relationships as they came together to learn and discover the heart of Jesus. Mildred continued to share her faith as she travelled on mission trips to Moldova, Russia, and the Dakotas. One of her last conversations was about her joy of meeting Jesus in heaven. The family wishes to thank everyone for their prayers, acts of kindness and support throughout Mildred’s life and her recent illness.

A memorial service for family and friends has been rescheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, March 19, 2022 at Philippi Christian Church in Deltaville. It will be followed by a reception. Faulkner Funeral Homes, Bristow-Faulkner Chapel in Saluda Va. is assisting the Ailsworth family.
