Mildred Lucinda Harvey, of the Green Ridge section of Scranton, passed away unexpectedly on Friday at Geisinger CMC. She was 79 years young.
She is survived by her beloved husband and best friend, Nathan Harvey. The couple celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary on September 5th.
An amazingly talented woman who brought joy and light to the world for 79 years, she was born on May 17, 1944, in Alachua, FL., to the late Isreal and Vivian (Black) Daniels. She retired from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation but her real calling was as a tireless volunteer for countless charities, organization and, of course her church, the Salvation Apostolic Temple.
She worked with church families, served on the M.L.K. Commission in Scranton, was active with the Penna. Chapter of the Wailing Women Worldwide and many other local scranton ministries. Whenever called upon, she selflessly volunteered without hesitation.
Above all else, including her many accomplishments, came her loving family and loyal friends.
She shared a special bond with her sister Charlotte who will never forget Mildred’s constant message of persevering through anything in life due to Christ’s strength within. Touching the lives of many, Mildred’s legacy will long live on.
Along with Nathan, she is survived by her sisters, Charlotte Ledbetter and Ruth Jones, both of Scranton; her daughter, Deanna Harvey of Scranton; and many adoring nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Along with her parents, she was also preceded in death by her step-father, Ernest “Buddy” Black; her siblings, Freddie Mae Baldwin, Isreal Daniels, Edward “Pop” Daniels and Dr. Preston “Sonny Boy” Black, M.D.
Mildred’s family would like to express their gratitude for the outpouring of love and condolences from well-wishing family and friends.
