And a recollection by Jane Foller:

Mildred, uh, I can't remember her middle name, but, she was Mildred Foller. That's the only grandparent I ever, ever saw. Even knew, kind sad. But it was grandmother Foller that I have a very deep remembering of her sitting in a "couch" (?) chair. She made me think back ... way-a-Victorian (giggles). She had a black dress on. And only a little white collar. And she was very plump. Very plump and sweet. And sweet as the dickens. And I liked her a lot (giggles). I only was with her about 2 days. Well, that's all the time we had. She lived with her daughter in Oil city.
