OBITUARY: Mildred Ann Brock


Mildred Ann Brock, age 80, of Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, loving wife, mother and wonderful Christian lady died peacefully surrounded by family on August 8, 2022, after a long battle with Dementia/Alzheimers.

She was born September 22, 1941 to the late, A.L. and Mildred McKinney Kimbriel in Jackson, TN. Although most of her life was spent in Tennessee, there was some time spent in Mississippi.

Ann married her high school sweetheart, Herbert Cleveland Brock, on February 20, 1960 at the First Baptist Church. They went on to join North Jackson Baptist Church where they were members until both of their deaths.

She worked for Bond Shoe Store, North Jackson Baptist Church as a secretary for over 20 years and then Dalton Meat Company. Her greatest love was sewing. For many years she held the business name of “Nana’s Needles and Threads”. She loved to sew for the public and hand-made many of the costumes for the church choir’s music performances.

Ann also loved to sing. She spent many hours in the 1980’s and 1990’s singing with a 4-lady quartet “Sonlight”, with the church choir and then in a group her daughter, Jennifer, put together “One Accord”. It is safe to say she is singing in that heavenly choir right now. Ann was a 50 year member of Jackson Chapter #85, Order of the Eastern Star.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Herbert Cleveland Brock.
