Millie grew up with her many siblings and cousins in Washington, MO. She worked as the Bursar at Mary Institute for 32 years. Millie was also quite a competitor in both sports and life: a great golfer with 3 holes-in-one and 5 Senior Olympic medals, a talented bowler which she took up in her 80’s, and she beat both breast and colon cancer and fought hard against Alzheimer’s. Her family will most remember her with love as a great cook and for one of her favorite pastimes: cuddling each of her great-grand babies.
Services: Private services were held. In lieu of flowers, contributions to St. Clare of Assisi Parish or the St. Vincent DePaul Society at St. Clare appreciated.
