The family wrote: "Our mother preferred to be called Millie. She had no enemies. Her love was in abundance. She never met a stranger. Millie loved arts, crafts and crocheting. Mom was full of concern when any of us were ill. She was the most loving and caring mother a child could ever wish for. She will be truly missed by everyone who knew her."
