She was the second youngest of five children born to Christian and Eva (nee Schwartz) Gaspers. Mildred grew up on the family homestead outside of Hallonquist.

They lived and farmed in the Hodgeville district and raised four children, Gwen, Lavonne, Conrad, and Shelley. She volunteered with the figure skating club and was a member of the CWL and Royal Purple. Mildred worked hard to maintain her yard, large vegetable garden, and flower gardens, as this was always important to her.
