Millie was a resident of Hammond and faithful member of Our Lady of Perpetual Church for over 50 years. For the past ten years she was a member of St. Henry’s Catholic in Springboro, OH. She took great comfort that the priests and lay ministry of St. Henry’s continued spiritual visits and weekly communion for her at home after she could no longer attend Mass. Millie had a strong commitment to charitable giving, and carefully budgeted so that she could donate frequently to a wide range of causes. Rarely could she turn away a request from any organization doing good work without at least a small gift. The causes closet her heart were her parish, children, animal rescue and Native Americans. She was an outgoing personality with a sharp wit. And strong loyalty to family and friends.

Millie was a very loving and caring Mother, Grandma, Sister and friend who will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
