Mildred Harvey, age 90, passed away on April 25, 2014.
Her son, Bruce Harvey, his wife Suzanne and their family, lived in the Elkhart and Alleman area for over 20 years. He taught and coached at the North Polk Schools. Their children, Tim (Jami) from Pleasant Hill, Matt (Kelly) from Glen Carbon, IL and Ginger (Marc) Hermon from Carlisle, were all graduates of North Polk.
Bruce’s parents, Bob and Mildred, often came to their ballgames and could be heard yelling encouraging words (and advice), no matter what the sport. Since their grandfather played a year of professional baseball, he and Mildred particularly enjoyed watching those games. Among Mildred’s survivors are Bruce (Suzanne) from Pleasant Hill; John from Pleasantville; and Stephanie (Steve) Sarcone from Des Moines. Also surviving are her 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren, whom she dearly loved. Funeral services were handled by Tonini Funeral Home in Des Moines. Burial was at the Eureka Cemetery east of Knoxville, Iowa.
