Mildred Jeanette Hershey Leatherman, 86, of Columbia, MD passed away peacefully at Gilchrist Center Howard County on October 22, 2019. Born in Keyser, WV on December 27, 1932, she was the daughter of the late Mamie Harman Hershey and John W. Hershey. She was preceded in death by her husband, Zedeiakah (Ray) Leatherman, her brother Raymond Hershey, and her daughter-in-law Denise Leatherman.
She is survived by her son David Leatherman; grandchildren Adam Leatherman, Erin Leatherman, and Samuel Leatherman; her sisters, Leona Shears, and Mary Dimlich. She is remembered by a loving community of neighbors, friends, and extended family. Everyone loved Millie.
While Millie traveled the world in her career with the Department of State, she was proudest of her title of Grandmother. She had an ever present relationship with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and for the last decade, was a member of Bethel Baptist Church in Ellicott City, MD.
The family would like to give thanks to her Church Family, care givers at Harmony Hall and her C.N.A. Diana for the unconditional care they provided.
