Mildred Louise Baugher, a retired grocery store cash clerk, died Monday of lung disease at her granddaughter's Douglasville, Ga., home, where she had lived for nearly three years. The former Northwest Baltimore resident was 74.
She was born Mildred Louise Carrier in Harrisonburg, Va., and attended schools there before moving to Baltimore in the 1950s. After working as a secretary at the Marlboro Shirt Co. in downtown Baltimore, she became a cash clerk at the business offices of several grocery chains, including the Penn Fruit Co., Food-a-Rama, Big Value and Basics. She retired about 10 years ago.
