Mrs. Anna Mildred Horner, 95, of 44 Mid Atlantic Parkway, Martinsburg, W.Va., died July 9, 2010, at Autumn Care Nursing Home in Altavista, Va., after a one-month illness.

She was a lifetime resident of Berkeley County, born Feb. 27, 1915, in Marlowe, W.Va. She was the daughter of the late Anna Belle Kerns and Rader Baker Smaltz.

She is survived by her daughter, Anna Jane Turner and her husband, Jim; her daughter-in-law, Barbara Copes and her husband, Marion; grandchildren, Jay Turner and his wife, Tonya, Pamela Duncan and her husband, Bud, Patricia McCoy and her husband, Matt, and Susan Tyler and her husband, James.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Homer Francis Horner, and her son, Howard Francis Horner.

She was a homemaker, an inspector at the Interwoven Mills and helped manage the family business, Horner's Turkey Farm. Mildred was a remarkable person who lived independently and managed her finances right up until the illness that took her life.

She was a faithful member of Pilgrim Presbyterian Church. She was also active in many volunteer organizations including driving for the Meals-on-Wheels program, a 50-year member of the Tuscarora CEOS and supporter of the Rescue Mission and Wycliffe Society.

Funeral services will be at 11 a.m., Monday July 12, at Pilgrim Presbyterian Church, 601 Albert St., Martinsburg, W.Va. Interment will be in Rosedale Cemetery. The family will receive friends Sunday, July 11, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Brown Funeral Home. Instead of flowers, it was Mildred's wish that memorial contributions be made to Pilgrim Presbyterian Church.

The family would like to thank all of Mildred's friends who visited and sent cards.
