Herman died September 29, 1947. On January 7, 1949, she was united in marriage to Cecil Oulman in Jackson, Minnesota. Cecil died January 21, 1971. When Mildred was younger she enjoyed fly fishing with Cecil. In her leisure time she enjoyed going out and eating dinner, joking with others, spending time at their cottage at the lake and dancing.
