Mildred died at her home on Collins Road five days after the death of her brother Howard, who was the Collins Company secretary-treasurer. Services were held at her church with Reverend John Lee officiating. Calling hours were at the Charles H. Vincent & Sons Funeral Home on Maple Avenue in Collinsville.

Mildred V. Follert is buried in the Village Cemetery, Collinsville.
