I had the privilege of working with Helen Milliken when I was working for the Michigan Foundation for the Arts. We had an annual event which honored artists, and each year, she was our keynote speaker. She was always gracious, inspiring and inclusive. I had one thing in common with her - we had each attended Smith College. She made me feel very special and supported my job and our arts awards. I was very sad to learn of her death and I hope both her husband and son have many opportunities to hear about how she touched so many lives.

To her beloved family, especially her wonderful husband, Gov. Bill Milliken. Plus, to all the Republicans of today..... Read more about the Millikens, who epitomized Republican grace, ethics and high values. I know that she will be at peace - a model of wonderful acts encompassing her beliefs. What a fabulous woman! Thank you, Helen, and thank you Governor, for choosing such a fantastic partner in marriage and in life.

The Millikens are still a well respected and beloved family by all. My bff has cerebral palsy and wheel chair bound was aided years ago onto the ferry to Mackinaw Island by the Millikens. Govenor Milliken helped lift her aboard and Mrs. Milliken sat with her and our moms during the ride over. She speaks of that experience today. May The Govenor and family receive much peace, comfort and support now and into the future. Soon no one will be sick ever. Take care, Isaiah 33: 24.

My deepest sympathies go out to the Milliken family. God is with you.
November 17, 2012
Yes Mrs. Milliken did seem to be a very wonderful as well as influential woman who did not simply take a back seat to her husband's career. She allowed the power and position that she did have to help change things and make great movements for women and for people to protect what is beautiful and pure; and not taking our environmental for granted we still have some beauty to look upon. I hope young girls too look to her a one of the great role models out there for young girls and young women coming up to respect themselves and their rights as well as everyone to help out the environment at which they live. May the family of Mrs. Milliken find comfort in the memories and stories they have of her and the things she left behind for them to cherish. May we all one day be able to say in a paradise for all to enjoy "Sorrow has passed and our troubles are gone.. Peace at last! Life without tears or pain. Live for the day when you'll say, "Life without end, at last!

I was lucky to see & hear Mrs. Milliken several times during the fight for the ERA. She so impressed me that I voted for her husband, almost the only time I have voted for a Republican. She was such an outstanding person that I knew her husband had to be also. Neither of them ever made me sorry for that decision. My heart goes out to the family on their loss. She was one of a kind, a true treasure.

Thank you, Helen Milliken.
