Mrs. Mildred Elaine Nash Primm was born on October 21, 1919 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was the only daughter born to Annie C. and Wiss Nash Sr. She was baptized in infancy at Union Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church where she later sang in Choir #3 and also served as a Sunday School teacher. She grew up with three loving, protective brothers (deceased) – Wiss Nash Jr., Harold H. Nash and George H. Nash.
Educated in the public schools of New Orleans, she graduated from the YMCA School of Business. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Xavier University in New Orleans; and received a Masters Degree in Childhood Education from Columbia University in New York. She taught in the public school system of New Orleans for 22 years.
Mrs. Primm was married to the late Bishop Howard Thomas Primm, the 71st Bishop in the A.M.E. Church. She served as Episcopal Supervisor in the 4th and 13th episcopal districts; and she led the Women’s Missionary Society to make outstanding contributions of food, clothing, and cash to disaster areas and mission churches in Tennessee and Kentucky. She also led the missionaries of the 13th district to pay off the mortgage on the episcopal residence. Mrs. Primm traveled to many mission churches and stations with her husband in the connectional church and to Great Britain, France, Holland, Italy, Greece, the Holy Land, Switzerland, Jamaica, and Trinidad.
She has held membership in Campbell Chapel A.M.E. Church in Denver, Colorado since 2007, where she was active in the Women’s Missionary Society and was, for many years, active in the church’s walking club, the Campbell Walkers. She is a life member of the Connectional Women’s Missionary Society. She is also a member of Sigma Gamma Rho sorority.
On Saturday morning, February 20, 2021, Mrs. Primm moved on to be with God and with her husband, Papa, Mother, brothers Wiss Jr., Harold, and George, and her little grandson, Samuel Jones.
