Bloomquist, Mary Camilla "Milly"  
PENN YAN - Mary Camilla (Milly) Bloomquist passed away on Thursday (December 11, 2014). A service of thanksgiving for her life will be held on Thursday (December 18) at 10:30 a.m. at St. Mark's Church with a reception to follow in the church hall. In memory of Milly, please consider donations to Food for the Needy, c/o Penn Yan First Baptist Church, 224 Main Street, Penn Yan, N.Y., 14527, Christmas for the Needy, P.O. Box 145, Penn Yan, N.Y., 14527, or Weekend Back Pck Program c/o Milly's Pantry, 19 Main Street, Penn Yan,N.Y., 14527. Milly was born on April 1, 1917, in McKeesport, Penn., the daughter of Courtney Clark and Katherine Agnes Hammitt. Personifying the phrase "above and beyond," she led a life of generous service to others throughout her long careers as nurse administrator, in public health, as a school nurse teacher and as a ten-year member of the Penn Yan Central Schools Board of Education. For many years after her retirement she was the coordinator of the Yates County Food for the Needy program. She also worked tirelessly for Christmas for the Needy and was the inspiration for the Weekend Back Pack program of Milly's Pantry. In October 2011, Barack Obama, the President of the United States, invited Milly Bloomquist to the White House in Washington, D.C. where he told a large audience in the East Room, "In Penn Yan, New York, if you're out of money and need groceries, what you do is, call Milly. If you need a little extra money to make the rent this month, call Milly. If you need a warm coat for the winter, call Milly." She received numerous community service honors and, in 2011, was awarded the Presidential Citizens medal by President Obama. At that time, the President leaned down to where Milly was sitting and said, "You did wonderful work in your life." Milly looked up at the President with just a sparkle of defiance and responded "I'm not done yet!" Milly is survived by son John (Julie) Bloomquist; and daughter, Becky (Chris) Holder; brother, Jack (Carolyn) Hammitt; grandsons, Ben and Sam Holder; granddaughters, Molly (Becca) Holder, Meghan (Bryant) Hummer, Courtney and Sarah Bloomquist; great-granddaughter, Joscelyn Hummer; and many treasured nephews and nieces, including her namesake Camilla Sparnecht. In addition to her parents, Milly was predeceased by her husband of 47 years, Earl W. "Bud" Bloomquist; brother, C. Clark Hammitt; sister, JoAnn Hartwig; and great-nephew Jack Navin.
