Millie was a remarkable woman. She raised nine children, was a wonderful cook and enjoyed her family very much. She was an avid card player and played to win!

Millie was a wonderful Christian woman living devoted to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She had an evangelistic spirit which was why she shared Jesus with everyone she knew.
