Mildred was born on October 27, 1927, in Cook County Chicago, IL to Art and Leondina (Kreis) Beilke.  Mildred graduated from Monango High School in ND, where she was a member of the Monango ND State Girls Championship Basketball Team in 1945. On January 8, 1949, she married Victor Fiechtner. Together they farmed in the Monango area from 1949 to 1967.  They moved to Turtle Lake, ND in 1968 and lived and worked for Borth’s Department Store through 1971. In January of 1971, they moved to Mandan, ND where Victor managed the Red Owl Grocery Store and Mildred kept the books, amongst other duties.  After Victor retired from the store, Mildred was a Tupperware Rep. for several years. Mildred loved to cook and sew; just two of her many talents. She made all of Victor’s suit coats by hand, and everyone loved her German Kuchen.

Blessed to have shared her life are three sons: Ken (Sue) Fiechtner, Glenfield, ND, Ron Fiechtner, Butte, ND (friend, Gayle Redmond, Turtle Lake, ND), and Jay Fiechtner, Mandan; grandchildren: Tara (Mike) Hinrichs, Bismarck, Megan (Kipp) Sparrow, Mercer, ND, Zach (Dr. Lacey Armstrong) Fiechtner, Bismarck, Nikki (Ben) Kinn, Bismarck; great grandchildren: Maisy, Jada, and Reed Hinrichs; Sophie, Daisy, and Charlie Sparrow;  and  Army Fiechtner; sisters: Lois Peldo, Norma Miller; sisters-in-law: Rose Marie Henke, Lenora Priebe; brothers-in-law: Don Ubben and Val Schulz.

Mildred was preceded in death by her husband, Victor;  parents; grandparents; daughter-in-law, Mary Fiechtner, late wife of Ron; sister, Charlotte Ubben; sister-in-law, Esther Schulz; brothers-in-law, Bob Peldo, Warren Henke, and Harry Priebe; and step brother, Jim Miller.
