Mildred NEPPL Obituary
NEPPL (Hejlik), Mildred Ann Mildred Ann (Hejlik) Neppl, beloved wife, mother and grandmother entered into God's loving arms on October 1, 2017. Millie is survived by her husband; Donald Neppl; her children, Jeff Neppl (Susan), Carmen (Neppl) Kissack, Michele (Neppl) Albrecht (Ralph), Mark Neppl (Louise); her grandchildren, Courtney Kissack, JD Neppl, Hannah Kissack, Julia Neppl, Rachel Albrecht, Amanda Neppl, Christopher Albrecht, and Andrew Neppl; her sisters; Theresa Doran, Rosella Tisl and Betty Tlach. She was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Bessie Hejlik; and her siblings; Cletus Hejlik and Alice Martin. Millie was born in 1936 in Britt, IA. She attended a country school house and graduated from The Good Counsel Academy in Minnesota. She was married for 58 years. She and her husband were owners of several stores in Newton, IA. She was the consummate example of a successful entrepreneur and business woman, including being the first female Chamber of Commerce President. She relocated to Sarasota, FL in 1984, where she had varied career pursuits and friendships, including Newcomers and the Friendship Force. In 2005 she relocated to Johns Creek, where she became a very active member at Saint Brigid Catholic Church. She was involved in numerous ministries and worked as the church's front desk receptionist. She was devoted to her church family and to her faith. Millie was an avid gardener, enjoying her many hours at the Johns Creek Garden in Newtown Park. She loved to play bridge, and canasta and was most recently learning to play mahjong. She loved to cook and bake for others, always sending meals to those in need and to her grandchildren in college. Millie was a passionate traveler throughout her life, including fulfilling a lifelong dream of seeing Israel with her church and most recently sharing adventures with her granddaughters in Europe. She was extremely vibrant and energetic, taking daily walks and making a constant effort to keep her mind and body young. A woman ahead of her time, she set and attained a bar so high, few could ever reach it. Millie was always encouraging others to reach for greatness, all while making sure her husband, and each of her children and grandchildren knew that they were loved beyond all measure. Please join her family on Sunday, October 8 for a visitation at 7 pm, followed by the Rosary at 7:30pm, at Saint Brigid Catholic Church. Her funeral Mass will also be at Saint Brigid on Monday, October 9 at 11am, followed by a reception in Corbett Hall. In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation in her name to her beloved bereavement ministry. Saint Brigid Catholic Church, 3400 Old Alabama Road, Johns Creek, GA 30022
