Mildred B. “Millie” (Bradley) Ring – a lifelong resident of Woburn, died peacefully, July 17th, after a brief illness, at the age of eighty-nine. She was the beloved wife of the late Richard T. Ring.

Raised and educated in Woburn, Mildred was a daughter of the late John Francis and Mary Louise (Doherty) Bradley. In 1963, Mildred lost her beloved husband Richard to a tragic accident and was left to raise 6 children, who were between the ages of 3 months and 10 years. 

For many years, she owned and operated Fan’s Dress Shop out of her home on Montvale Avenue. Years later, Millie worked as a bookkeeper for Family and Children Services in Lynn. She also worked as a volunteer for the Woburn Council of Social Concern.

Mildred was an avid bridge player, obtaining the distinction of Life Master.  For many years, she was a bridge instructor throughout Massachusetts and she also was a Bridge Director on numerous cruises, where she was able to explore different countries and places, and teach fellow passengers how to play bridge.

Millie lived life to the fullest, enjoying family vacations at Hampton Beach when her children were young, or later in life vacationing on the beach in Maine with her children and grandchildren. Since Millie was born on the 4th of July, the annual summer holiday was doubly celebrated with a local gathering by her growing clan.
