We are grateful to have been blessed with such an amazing woman who was also an aunt, cousin, friend and role model. She was kind, compassionate, witty, generous and patient. Her love was evident in everything she did from sewing to crafting in the garage with her husband in the summer months to bedazzling before it was cool.
Millie collected die-cast minature pencil sharpeners, porcelain dolls, and music boxes and crystal figures.
Millie enjoyed talking on the telephone, every opportunity to be a pen pal and music. She loved to cook with her husband and bake for him. She especially made the holidays memorable. She had such a unique way of making each and every person in her life know just how important they were.
Our Heavenly Father has called her home, through the pearly white gates, to be with her loving husband in Heaven for all of eternity.
A Celebration of their lives will be held Friday, May 19, 2023 at 1:00pm at Mountain View Cemetery in South Range with a graveside service.
