I am saddened to hear of Millie's passing. I was privileged to meet her while delivering Mobile Meals, and it was always a highlight of my route to spend a little time with her listening to reminiscences of her years in the Portage Lakes area. Her keen memory and down-to-earth spirit made my visit a special pleasure.
