By on July 9, 2014

Mildred Caroline (Young) Nagle, wife of Charles F. “Bud” Nagle, 372 Rudy Dam Road, Lititz, went home to be with Jesus Monday, June 30, 2014.

Born Jan. 7, 1920, in Reading, Mildred was the daughter of Clark and Maggie (Miller) Young, and was one of five children.

Mildred was the last surviving founding member of Glad Tidings Assembly of God, where she taught Sunday School. The church was originally established on Windsor Street, Reading, in 1923. Now known as GT Church in West Lawn, this Assemblies of God congregation now welcomes more than 2,800 people to weekly worship services in their West Lawn and Kutztown campuses.

In addition to attending church, Mildred looked forward to vacation visits and camp meetings at the family’s cabin at Cape May Holiness Association’s campgrounds in Erma, N.J. She enjoyed playing games, good music (especially when played by her nephew, Sidney Watts), and spending time with her family at the beach.

Mildred was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease 20 years earlier, and throughout her illness was faithfully and lovingly cared for by her husband, Bud. Her family celebrates her life and rejoices in the confidence that she now has a glorified mind and body, perfectly suited for heaven.

Mildred was the loving mother of: Deborah C. Henne, wife of Nelson T. Henne, Fleetwood, and Robert C. Nagle husband of Wendy R. Nagle, Lititz. She was “Nanny” to three granddaughters: Heather C. Soltysik, wife of Jeffrey L. Soltysik, Reading, Kimberly R. Wallace, wife of Elyus A. Wallace, Winchester, Va. and Megan E. Fulmer, wife of Stephen A. Fulmer, Manheim. She was also Silas Fulmer’s great-grandmother.

Services were held July 5 at Glad Tidings Assembly of God, West Lawn. Burial will be in Berks County Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Glad Tidings Assembly of God Church, 1110 Snyder Rd, Reading, PA 19609.
