Mildred Zelita Maule Biesele, born May 21, 1916, passed away on Friday, March 24, 
2000. She died as she had lived, quietly and with great warmth and dignity, 

surrounded by her loving family. She lived her life as the perfect role model and 
participated in raising three gener-ations of children. She touched the lives of many 
diverse people over the years with her intelligence, kindness and compassion and she 
will be missed by all who knew her. 

Mildred was raised in San Antonio, Texas and moved to Salt Lake City in 1941 with 
her husband, Ferdinand C. Biesele, when he accepted a teaching position with the 
Mathematics department at the University of Utah. He taught there until shortly before 
his death in 1976. She was a strong supporter of many organizations including the 
League of Women's Voters, the Republican Party, the PTA, U of U Faculty Wives, 
Holladay Community Church and several garden and book clubs, She volunteered to 
read to the blind twice weekly for 30 years, and was a long time member of the 
Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE). 

Mildred was one of the world's foremost researchers into the study of UFO phenomena 
and served as the Director of the Utah Chapter of MUFON for many years. She 
investigated any UFO sightings reported in this area, gave many talks on the subject, 
and was often consulted as an expert in the field. 

She loved gardening and kept a large organic garden as well as a beautiful yard full of 
flowers and birds. 

She is survived by her half brother, Barnard B. Wilson of Austin, Texas, her three 
children, Charles W. Biesele, Zelita A. Biesele, William H. Biesele, seven
