Mildred was born in Spartanburg, SC on Wednesday, June 6, 1928, to the late Wilford Lee Chapman and Edna Grace Noblitt (nee Coon). Mildred is also preceded in death by her husband, William Ronald McLaughlin and son, Richard Dolph McLaughlin.

Prior to moving to Brevard, NC, Mildred lived in Landover Hills, MD, Luray, VA, and Washington, DC.
