Deceased Name: MILDRED GOLDEN DIES IN MORGAN COUNTY
Mildred J. Golden went to the old Bethany Orphanage in Wolfe County ''almost
on a dare" in the 1920s. "She got attached to it and came back," said the
Rev. Walter Dean, director of the facility, which is now known as the Bethany
Christian Mission Center.
Miss Golden, whose affiliation with the community of Bethany and the
orphanage-turned-boarding school lasted for more than 50 years, died yesterday at
Morgan County Appalachian Regional Hospital in West Liberty after a long
illness. She was 84.
Miss Golden not only worked with orphans and other students at the center
but also served as Bethany's postmaster from 1951 to 1970. She worked as a
midwife in the community as well. "She was very highly thought of, much loved,"
said Mary Dolliver, a nurse at the Christian Mission Center. Miss Dolliver said
Miss Golden helped establish and was active in a number of Sunday school
programs, held at area homes, school buildings and other places. She delivered
more than 250 babies without the help of a doctor, and never lost a baby or a
mother, friends said. Miss Golden would travel the hills and valleys by
horseback and later by Jeep to help expectant mothers deliver their babies.
She also did general nursing in the area, helping people through flu and
other illnesses.
"She had wanted to go to India as a missionary. She was unable to do this .
. . yet she came here and she did it all," Miss Dolliver said. Dean said, "She
was a very sweet person. . . . All through the community she was looked up
to." Miss Golden was a graduate of Asbury College.
The funeral will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at Bethany Church. Visitation will
begin at 6 p.m. today at the church. Shackelford Funeral Home in Campton is in
charge of arrangements.
