Mildred Betty Jo Isaac King was born Monday, June 25, 1928, to Elder Donald and Monnie Isaac at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas. She was the third of four children. 

Mildred's kindergarten teacher was her mother’s cousin, who taught her at a school (Phillips Kindergarten) in the park. She received her formal education in Dallas Public Schools. Mildred attended B. F. Darrell Elementary (Grades 1-8) and graduated from Booker T. Washington High School in 1946.

In her later years she enjoyed a fulfilling and rewarding career as a Childcare Teacher.

In 1985 she married the love of her life, Mr. Henry King and to this union no children were born.
