OH!!!! what a lady!!!!! I worked with Millie at St. Joseph hospital for many years. There was never a dull moment working with your mom. She traveled those halls as a supervisor so fast seemed like she was on roller skates. She had a contagious sense of humor. I always appreciated her honesty . She was never afraid to stand up for her patients. Loved her confidence when dealing the adminstration. What a saintly lady. May the Lord give you strength during this sad time. Know that your mom touched many lives and the world is a much better place because of her.

Millie was a wonderful lady and a good friend who always opened her home when I came over to pick up Jim.
Your parents were kind,thoughtful and generous. I remember alot of good times and laughs.
She will be missed and I pray the Lord wraps his arms around you through these difficult times.
