Mildred C. McCloe

Mildred C. McCloe

Scranton, PA November 2, 1922 ~ March 26, 2012 Date of Service: March 31, 2012

Mildred C. McCloe, 89, Scranton, died Monday. She was preceded in death by her husband, the late Daniel I. McCloe who died in 1994. She passed peacefully at home under the loving care of her family and the wonderful staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart.

Born in Harrisburg on November 2, 1922, daughter of the late Robert and Goldie Adley Napper and attended William Penn High School in Harrisburg. She later moved to Philadelphia where she graduated from the Philadelphia public school and the Temple University Business School. She owned and operated several businesses before moving to Scranton where she married Daniel and raised their nine children. Prior to retirement, she was employed by Friendship House of Scranton, T. Alperin, and by Drs. Kane and Jordan.

Mildred was a dedicated servant of the Lord, accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, working as a missionary and spreading the Good News. She was a member of Shiloh Baptist Church, and served her church with her whole heart. In recognition of this, the title of Church Mother was recently bestowed upon her. She is best known for her gentle, humble spirit and always putting forward the qualities of a true lady. Her mission to those in need was unwavering, putting those first before herself. The depth of her faith is evident in the loving, compassionate legacy that she leaves with us all.

Mildred is remembered as a lovely lady who loved God, her church, children and grandchildren. She “is” Mother, Nana, Sister, Aunt and Friend. She “is” because her spirit continues to LIVE in us.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Serine and staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart for all of the compassion and care provided.

She is survived by her nine children, sons Dale A. McCloe and wife Jeanne, Moscow; and Duane M. McCloe, Scranton; daughters Carol A. Morris and Byron, Harrisburg; Vivian E. Brooks, Dayton, OH; Tami Whitt and husband Charles, Buffalo, NY; Dora Wilson Mapp and husband George, Moscow; Barbara McCloe and husband Robert Hawk, Scranton; Lynn McCloe, Scranton; Daniela (Dee) Henderson and son-in-law Joe Thomson, Scranton; 20 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; sister Brenda Pollard, Harrisburg; brothers Leonard and Marvin Napper; 3 sisters-in-law, Ann, Renee and Gloria, Harrisburg; as well as a host of nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by an infant daughter Marion, grandsons Lewis B. Morris and Robert D. Kelly III; sisters, Evelyn, Bernetta and Delores; and brother, Robert.

The funeral will be Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Shiloh Baptist Church, on the corner of Wayne Ave. and William St., North Scranton, with services by interim Pastor Cornelius Williams. Friends may call Saturday morning from 10 a.m. until the time of service in the church. In lieu of flowers. Donations may be made to Shiloh Baptist Church, 1936 Wayne Ave., Scranton 18508.

Dearest Jeanne,
I'm so thankful that you were able to be home for your "mom's" passing. She surely sounds like a terrific lady. Will be in prayer for your sorrow and that you will have peace. Praise God that she is with Him and for all He's done for us to make it possible.
In Christ,
