Obituary for MILDRED LEE HAIRSTON

Mildred Lee White Hairston, 87, of Prince Frederick, MD died on Sunday, May 24, 2009 at her residence. She was born on February 19, 1922 in Norfolk, VA to the late Joseph White and Alice House White. Mildred lived a long, wonderful life and made a very big impact on the people of Calvert County. She became the first librarian of Calvert County in 1959. She also helped established the Calvert Pines Senior Center and was president of the Senior Companion Program. People spoke of Mildred as being a "character" but to sum up this remarkable woman is next to impossible. Her motto was "Happiness comes from doing what you should be doing, and nothing is more important than people." She was presented with a proclamation as a permanent record of Calvert County for her devotion, professionalism and friendship displayed during her twenty-five plus years of public service. She was the mother of Alice Hand, Robert Hairston, and Joseph Hairston, Sr. She has three grandchildren, Walter Hand, Christopher Hand, and Joseph Hairston, Jr., also survived by her great grandchildren, Danielle and Alexander Hairston.
