MILDRED N. URSO


“MILLIE”

MILDRED URSO, A 53 YEAR RESIDENT OF CHESTER, DIED PEACEFULLY AT HER HOME

ON FEBRUARY 29, 2024. BORN AND RAISED IN BROOKLYN, SHE WORKED FOR

WESTERN ELECTRIC TELEPHONE IN HER YOUNGER YEARS AND WAS VERY PROUD

OF THE FACT THAT SHE SAVED UP ENOUGH MONEY TO TAKE A TRIP TO EUROPE ON

HER OWN AND TO BUY A 1964 1/2 MUSTANG THAT SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH WHEN SHE

SAW IT AT THE WORLD’S FAIR.

MILLIE MARRIED FRANCESCO (FRANK) URSO IN 1965 AND TOGETHER, THEY RAISED

THREE CHILDREN, HAD SEVEN GRANDCHILDREN AND TWO GREAT-

GRANDCHILDREN.

A WOMAN OF GREAT STRENGTH WITH AN UNBELIEVABLE WORK ETHIC, MILLIE

WORKED NIGHTS AS A NURSE’S AID AT THE ORANGE COUNTY INFIRMARY (NOW

KNOWN AS VALLEY VIEW) WHILE RAISING THREE CHILDREN, ATTENDING NURSING

SCHOOL AND CARING FOR HER MOTHER WHO SUFFERED FROM ALZHEIMER’S.

MILLIE LOVED ROSES AND PEARLS AND LOOKED FORWARD TO MAKING A BIG DEAL

ABOUT EVERYONE’S BIRTHDAYS. SHE WAS AN AVID READER OF BOOKS AND A

LOYAL FAN OF THE NEW YORK METS. IN HER GOLDEN YEARS, SHE ENJOYED

PLAYING BINGO EVERY WEDNESDAY AND DOING HER WORD FIND PUZZLE IN HER

DAILY NEWSPAPER. SHE WAS A PARISHIONER OF ST. COLUMBA CHURCH AND A 23

YEAR MEMBER OF THE CHESTER GOLDEN AGE SENIOR CLUB.
