Swiss, Mildred (Millie) Alice (Moore)

Mildred (Millie) Alice (Moore) Swiss, age 90, died peacefully on April 30, 2017 at Pathways Hospice in Loveland, Colorado. Born January 20, 1927 in Westchester County, New York, she was preceded in death by her mother, Dorothy Lillian C. (Devine) Moore; her father, William H. Moore; her husband, William Hunt Swiss; and her son, Daniel Robert Swiss.

Millie graduated from Pelham Memorial High School in 1945, and completed her registered nurse training at the Mount Vernon Hospital School of Nursing in 1949. On August 30, 1950, Millie married Navy Lieutenant William (Bill) Hunt Swiss at Pelham Manor, New York. In 1959, Millie, Bill and their young family made New Mexico their home. Bill worked as a technical writer for Sandia Labs until his death in June, 1973, and Millie had a nearly four-decade career as a Registered Nurse in the Albuquerque area. In 2016, after 47 years enjoying life in Albuquerque, Millie moved to Fort Collins, Colorado to be near her family. Millie loved classical music, the opera, travel around the world, visiting museums & galleries, and a well-prepared and presented meal shared with friends & family. Until her final days, she had a sense of humor & was always concerned about the comfort of others.

Millie is survived by her son, David Kevin Swiss (spouse - Evelyn Amies Swiss); her daughter, Cynthia Swiss, her daughter-in-law, Kay Bird, and her two granddaughters, Hillary Swiss MacKay (spouse â€" Glen C. MacKay), and Shay Argyres. A memorial service with friends and family will be held in New Mexico in the coming weeks.

The family wishes to thank the Lovelace Health System medical professionals for their care and Millie's many friends and neighbors who loved and supported her in Albuquerque. Millie will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
