Mildred Louise Shields Krehbiel, 93, of Bryan, Texas passed away on Saturday, January 16, 2021.
She was born on September 18, 1927 in Huntington, Long Island, New York to Lawrence and Louise (Geise) Moddle.  She moved to Texas with her family during the depression.
She survived the death of her first husband, Milton A. Shields, Jr. in 1974.
She was a vibrant and intelligent woman that, with only a degree from Edcouch-Elsa High School, rose from part time PBX operator to Senior Management at General Telephone Company.  She was a long time active member of the A&M United Methodist Church.  Everyone will remember her for her kindness and thoughtfulness.
