Mildred Jacqueline Sernholt
Mar 6, 1927 - Jul 18, 2016
This obituary is in loving memory of our dear parents. Our Father, Lennart Ake Sernholt was born in Stockholm, Sweden on April 20, 1924 and our Mother, Mildred Jacqueline Wells was born on March 6, 1927 in Chualar, California. Our father left this world on July 4, 2016 and our mother followed him on July 18, 2016. They were meant to be together forever and enjoyed 67 wonderful years of marriage.
Our Father worked for the County of Sacramento as a stationary engineer and Mother worked as a bookkeeper for the State of California Board of Education.
They both lived a full life of adventure and happiness. They traveled the world and never let anything get them down. They loved skiing, biking, hiking, swimming you name they did it. Our father was an artist with wood, metal and glass and built 2 houses and a cabin up at Donner Lake when we were children. Our mother was pretty handy herself and worked as hard as our father on every project they set their minds to do. They loved family and friends and always would volunteer to help someone out when it was needed. Our house was always filled with parties and social events and no one ever left our house hungry. They cherished their life together and really were never apart so now they are dancing on heavenly clouds watching over us all. They are survived by our Father’s sister, Anita and their daughters, Karen and her husband Kevin Sypolt and Carla Mitchell; granddaughters Kristen and Alison and grandsons Matthew and Christopher.
