Millicent B. Mandrino
On December 23rd, 2022, at 9:25 am our loving mother and matriarch of the Mandrino family, Millicent Beverly Mandrino made her way, in a split-second, to her heavenly home. She resided here on earth for 84 years and 4 days. She was daughter of John Young and Susan Klein. Millicent was born on December 19th, 1938, in Rochester, NY. She was raised there and graduated from John Marshal High School. She had one older brother, John Arnold, one younger brother, James Albert and a younger sister Karen. They preceded her in passing.
Millicent married her high-school sweetheart, Joseph Paul Mandrino on February 5th, 1957. Millicent and Joseph had six children together, Joseph John, Steven William, Christopher David, Denise Marie, Mark Timothy, and Caleb Paul. She is survived by her children, seventeen grandchildren, and nineteen great-grandchildren. Mom, as she is known to us, Mrs. M, Micky, and Pastor’s wife was a loving and devoted wife. She was a partner to dad during their fifty plus years in the ministry. She taught, mentored, won souls, discipled, helped church-plant, and raised a family. They met Christ on March 29th, 1970, and soon after headed to Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO. in 1971. Once completing seminary, they moved to Singapore in 1975. They pastored both abroad and stateside. Together mom and dad labored as missionaries church-planting in Macau and the Philippines. During their ministry stateside they pastored churches in GA, Kansas, and Oklahoma. Their final church home where they partnered in ministry for 17 years was Edmond Road Baptist Church in Edmond, OK.
Mom was a teacher, soul-winner, mother, pastor/missionary wife, and faithful daughter of God. She loved caring for her husband, family, and church family. She was a great cook and baker. She kept an immaculate home and loved decorating, fashion. She was an avid shopper of bargains. Mom lived out an example before us as faithful and obedient servant to her Lord. Her husband Joe passed away on September 25th of 2020. The loneliness, pain, and suffering she experienced are now gone and replaced with rejoicing. There is a forever reunion with her husband and all those who have gone on before. Your labor of love, the fruit that remains, and the treasure of souls brought to Christ will not be forgotten. The path you walked of faithfulness shines on brightly before us. While we miss you, we know we will see you there at home.
The funeral will be held at Edmond Road Baptist Church 1207 W. Edmond Rd., in Edmond, OK 73003. on December 28th at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers the family request memorials be made to Edmond Road Baptist Church Missionary Fund.
