Mildred was one of the most vivacious and engaging women I have ever known. Have known her since she came to Green Street Baptist in 2000. Honored to be her friend and pastor most of that time. 
Our son, Mitchell Hensley has worked in textiles his entire career and he was totally surprised when he saw one of her books in our car. He asked how I knew her. From church I said. How do you know her I asked. He replied, dad, Mildred Ramsey is a legend. He had invited her to speak several times to a couple of organizations. Her legacy will last for many years in the textile industry. 
She will surely be missed by all who knew her or even knew about her.

My deepest sympathy to all the Ramsey family. Mildred was such an exceptional person.
I met Mildred in her later years, when we would exercise at the Ragsdale YMCA swimming pool 3 mornings a week for 1 hour. It was amazing how she would recite poetry, sing songs, say prayers , throw in a few jokes, and always tell me interesting stories of her life and family. This made the hour pass fast and the exercise enjoyable.
We became great pool pals. I still have her signed book, “ A Winner Warts and all”

I did not know Mildred personally, but I have spent many hours listening to her words through “The Super Supervisor”. We purchased this material years ago to share the thinking with our leadership, so they can lead confidently and courageously. This is such a timeless message. I enjoy spending time with Mildred every month when I hold a class....the material is great, but she is even better. My sincerest condolences to her family and friends.

Mildred was one of my heroes. Her humorous, perspective on life was contagious. I was fortunate enough to see/hear her presentations numerous times and it never got old. I even visited with her when she lived at Dougie's home. She was the real deal and I have a picture of she and me on my mirror. As long as the thousands of us, whose lives she touched are alive, she is too. Remember guys, "If you want to show your children that you love them, love their momma." RIP my friend. Doug, you did right by your momma.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Aunt Mildred was my mother's younger sister and my favorite aunt - I should say one of the greatest people I've ever known. Simply put, I loved her with all my heart. She said and did so many things for me over the years. Me and her boys, especially Steve and Doug were always very, very close, I will miss her, but I thank God for her life, her ministry and the great opportunity I had to be her nephew.

Mildred was so very inspiring through her books, motivational speeches and especially her prayers.   She also had such a wit about her singing her favorite songs and with her jokes.   She will be missed by so many but never forgotten..

Mildred was always so welcoming to the youth at WABC. She hosted many swim parties. She was a wonderful friend to my mom, Ola Crowe. It was interesting to listen to her stories. She always gave glory to God!
