Millie was born January
4, 1927 in Provo, Utah to
Elmer and Rosella Miller.
She had four other siblings:
Merline, Lowell, Dorothy
and Anna Lou. Merline,
Lowell and Dorothy proceeded
Millie in death.
Anna Lou, the youngest sibling, is still
living in Texas.
Millie enjoyed growing up in
Utah. Her father was the Head of the
Economics Department at Brigham
Young University. Millie went to
Brigham Young High School. She
attended BYU as a Drama Major and
also obtained a Teaching Certificate
and graduated in 1949.
After graduating, Millie taught
school then became a "Stewardess"
for United. There she met Vincent
Mele and married, June 26, 1954.
They had three children: Diana Leiter
(Scott), Douglas Mele and Wendy
Mele Stofa (Frank).
She was lucky to have four grandchildren
that she enjoyed and was
very active in all of their lives.
Christopher Leiter (Rachelle), Patrick
Leiter (Amy), Lynsey Budge (Jake) and
Nicholas Stofa. She also had eight
Great-Grandchildren: Natalie, Rebecca,
Kelsie, Julia, Avery, Brooklynn,
Blake and Alice.
After teaching and her
time as a stewardess, Millie
went into retail and
loved selling makeup and
perfume at the fine department
stores of the day. She
worked first in Denver and
then finally made it out to
Southern California which was always
her dream.
Millie ended up in Colorado in her
later years and spent them in the sun
at the Stroh Ranch Pool where she had
many friends. Millie passed peacefully
after 91 years!
